The state of SC has an amazing program for people over 60 years old.  It is designed to help seniors stay at home and is need based. the Area Agency covers Hampton, Jasper, Beaufort and Colleton counties. They cover a variety of needs and provide services such as Meals on Wheels, personal care aids, home maker aids (simple household chores).  In the last 3 months there has been an increased need because of people pulling their senior family members out of facilities because of COVID-19.  One program has a whole team of people who help senior understand the October open enrollment for medicare.  Another program provides funds to make safety improvements in the home, such as ramps and railings.  There are many programs available and some of the services have waiting lists because of the increased number of people that have come out of facilities.  Volume has increased almost triple.
