"Working with Senior Care Authority Carolinas was awesome! They made the process of finding and choosing a community faster and easier. I would recommend using them."

"We have been dealing with a loved one who was suffering from a very aggressive form of dementia and knew the time was upon us to start looking for a place where our loved one could be cared for around the clock. We have had the pleasure of knowing Linda for many years and when we learned that she was now working with families who needed help in finding the "right fit" we were of course very comfortable in allowing Linda to assist us in making a tough situation so much more tolerable. Linds spent time really understanding what our needs were and worked hard to find the right environment that met those needs. Whether it was the communities survey history, longevity of staff, activities, transportation, room layout or just the financial investment, Linda was so diligent in making sure we were making the best choice we could. We are convinced that Linda's involvement helped us find the best place for our loved one's care. I really don't know what we would have done if Linda hadn't been there to guide us along the way. We hole heartedly thank her and would highly recommend her services to anyone in a similar situation. She made the difficult bearable."

"I knew nothing about finding an assisted living facility for my dad before I met Linda. She was professional, knowledgeable, educational, and most importantly caring. We looked at 4 different places that all met the criteria. Together we selected the best one. Days after selection, my dad was informed he needed to move from his current skilled care facility to someplace else. Insurance said so. There are no family members within an 8 hour drive of my dad and Linda facilitated the move on her own. She even made arrangements for temporary furniture until family could return. Never in my adult life have I experienced such genuine care from a service provider. Linda is by far the best."

SCA in Greenville went beyond in such ways as meeting with my Mom for comfort, arranging for other care and even moving.
