We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. ~Winston Churchill

According to the American Red Cross, one blood donation can save up to three lives. On Aug 24, 2010, the employees, associates, and friends of Agape Senior teamed up to help replenish depleted blood supplies. The event took place on the West Columbia campus on Leaphart Road.

Agape Senior employees from the West Columbia campus came, along with other employees from across the Midlands. Employees from the Harbison campus in Irmo, the Kathwood campus in Forest Acres, and the Lexington campus gathered to give the gift of life. The volunteers rolled up their sleeves and within four hours had donated 44 units of blood. The total donation has the potential to save 132 lives.

Every person that donated seemed to have a different story for making the commitment to be there that day. Some donors had never given before. One donor had not donated in over fifteen years. It was truly an amazing team effort to meet and exceed the goal set for the event by the Red Cross.

Agape Senior is no stranger to supporting worthwhile causes. The company is committed to involvement in the local communities in which it has operations. Agape Senior has a fundamental philosophy to empower its employees to look for and become part of the solution for any problem. Read more about Agape Senior.

Agape Senior South Carolina Launches Brand New Home Assesment Program

Agape Senior South Carolina Launches Brand New Home Assesment Program

Senior Home VisitEvery day in South Carolina thousands of senior adults are struggling to get through the day. It might be a mobility issue that makes even simple tasks seem impossible. It might be a maintenance issue with the home that is causing an unsafe living condition. Or it could be isolation and loneliness that are causing depression. If the senior does not have a local support system he or she will usually suffer in silence.

Often in these cases the condition deteriorates to the point where the senior ends up in the hospital because of a fall, dehydration or dozens of other possibilities. When this happens a family member might come in from out of town and be faced with the reality that his or her loved one can no longer completely function on his or her own. This is a crisis situation for everyone involved. Important decisions about future care have to be made quickly and usually with limited information.

Agape Senior, a leading provider of senior care in South Carolina, has been working actively with local communities and churches to educate seniors about different care options available. “We want to help seniors avoid a crisis and be able to make an informed decision about additional care when and if the time comes,” states Scott Middleton, CEO of Agape Senior.

In response to this growing problem, Agape Senior just launched a brand new program that is focused on taking solutions and options to the senior. The Agape Senior Home Assessment program is now available throughout the state. The comprehensive program involves an (SSA) Senior Solution Advisor making a house call at the request of the homeowner or family member. The trained advisor will evaluate the current conditions and identify the areas that pose the greatest daily living challenges for the senior in the home.

The checklist for the program was designed by experts within the senior healthcare industry. The multiple categories within the checklist look at all of the areas of daily living. There is a large focus on safety and ease of mobility in the current home. The goal is to identify potential problems and help the senior connect to possible solutions before the problem becomes a crisis.

If you would like more information on the Agape Senior Home Assessment program or would like to schedule an assessment please call 1-800-411-AGAPE (2427)

Columbia SC Employee Real Estate Benefit Program

 The road to achieving the American dream is often paved with hard work, knowledge, and professional guidance. Fortunately for Agape Senior employees a team of professionals has been assembled to help with that process.

The Legacy Care Real Estate Benefit program was introduced as an employee benefit several months ago. Legacy Care allows an Agape Senior employee the choice to use preferred providers in all or some of the professional services required to purchase, sell or refinance a home. The program includes service fee discounts and cash back rebates to the employee that is a principal in a real estate transaction.

We are proud to announce our first Legacy Care client, Sharon Davis, closed on her new home on Thursday, May 20. Sharon is a great example of today’s modern well-informed consumer in the housing market. Sharon took advantage of a down payment assistance program that is being offered by Richland County. A requirement of the program is that the recipient attends classes that teach the home buyer the ropes of purchasing a first home.

Sharon was now armed with the information from her classes and she took the next step by putting the Legacy Care team to work for her. Legacy Care mortgage specialist Bill Oliver, worked with Sharon to pre-qualify her for a mortgage. Being pre-qualified before looking for a home is a smart way to narrow your searches to the homes in your price range. It also provides for a much stronger offer to the seller when submitting a contract with a pre-approval letter from a lender.

Catherine Thornton a certified first-time buyer agent with Exit Agape, then began working with Sharon to find her the perfect home. The services of a good buyer’s agent are invaluable during this part of the process. The agent will evaluate potential properties for current value, submit and negotiate the purchase contract, coordinate the inspections, and negotiate the repairs from the inspections.

Once the purchase contract is accepted by all parties, it is then sent to our preferred real estate attorney, Jeremy Martin. Jeremy has been working with Exit Agape for over two years and was involved in the majority of Agape Village closings. Jeremy performs all of the necessary legal work to ensure the property is titled properly and that there are no liens or claims against the property. He also performs the closing, ensuring all documents are properly signed and recorded.

Communication between all the parties involved in getting a real estate transaction to closing is crucial. We believe that our team approach in providing professional services is a real advantage to the employee. It was gratifying to see how excited Sharon was on the day of closing at our office in West Columbia. The entire Legacy Care team would like to thank Sharon for giving us the opportunity to help.

Exit Agape Real Estate Services announces a brand new real estate benefit program called Legacy Care. The program provides multiple discounts and rebates to Agape Senior employees when involved in a real estate transaction. The program which is believed to be the first of its kind in South Carolina provides professional services, information, and on-going education about the home buying or selling process for direct employees and immediate family members of employees.

The Legacy Care program provides significant savings to qualified participants by bundling all of the services a buyer or seller would typically use in a real estate transaction. Each provider has committed to discounts and or rebates to the principal involved in the transaction. An employee can also choose to use an individual provider within the program and realize the savings for that one segment of the transaction.

The goal of the program is to provide the best professional services along with relevant information to every participant. Agape Senior employees will now have the resources readily available to make informed decisions when buying, selling, or refinancing real estate.
