Develop a plan for your loved one that includes a customized suite of personal care services in Columbia, SC. People choose in-home care as an alternative to retirement homes and managed care facilities as a way to preserve a sense of independence for themselves or their loved one. A home is filled with unique memories and acts as a refuge from the turbulence of the outside world. But those who have suffered an injury or are physically unable to ambulate normally for any number of reasons may find navigating the home especially risky.

DHCS is a leading provider of non-medical companionship and care for aging and injured patients throughout our area. Each of the clients we serve has a different set of needs, so we offer a tiered grouping of services that fits the situation you face. We keep a watchful eye on the one you love and provide the specific assistance they need to enjoy life to the fullest.
