Why did you decide to take a career in this industry? We want to hear your journey and you could inspire others to take that same path.

Words from SCHCHA President and CEO, Tim Rogers
“Each year we raise up and celebrate our home care and hospice providers and workforce and fight to increase awareness of the value in empowering our most vulnerable patients to age and deal with chronic illnesses with dignity in the home,” said SCHCHA President and CEO, Tim Rogers. “The senior population is predicted to double in South Carolina by 2030. Healthcare needs will only increase, with agencies already facing many challenges and a stressed workforce. The overwhelming majority of elderly and chronically ill patients prefer to remain in the comfort of their homes, surrounded by family and friends. We are grateful to Governor Henry McMaster for expressing appreciation to home care and hospice agencies and their workforce for their contributions to an improved quality of life for patients and their families. We, too, encourage all to learn more about your options of care and share your wishes with your family, loved ones, and health care professionals.”
