6 Caregivers and Support Links

homecare options

The following list of caregiving and homecare resources are local, to the Upstate South Carolina area, and national links. 

Please note:

1. I am a caregiver like many of my readers. I am not a certified professional. This list is based on my research, not on any professional qualification. 

2. The list is in no particular order. All have been selected for having better reviews and/or an excellent selection of available information.

3. As with any choice, please look through the list and make any choices based on your own research and sound reasoning. In cases that require particular specialized care, it is best to defer to certified professionals' recommendations.
