The Caring Team Serving Lowcountry Seniors
Our team of dedicated, compassionate, experienced well trained caregivers are the core of our business. Their consistent service to seniors and homebound adults in Hilton Head and Savannah inspires us daily and improves the quality of life for our clients who need assistance at home.
Award Winning Caregivers
This video features Willie Ann Hamilton, one of our many caring staff, awarded Right at Home Southeast Region caregiver of the year, and recognized for the above and beyond service she provided to her elderly client during a weather emergency. As Hurricane Matthew approached the coast, Willie helped make arrangements to assist in evacuating her long term senior client to safe shelter at a hotel, and she continued caring for her at the hotel for many days throughout the event.
