MYRTLE BEACH, SC (October 17, 2013) — Many ResCare operations strive to make ResCare’s mission known to local and state legislators. It is essential that lawmakers understand the importance of ResCare’s services to individuals in their community.
During this year’s Healthy Aging Month, ResCare HomeCare in Charleston invited Lieutenant Governor Glenn McConell, from the Office of Aging, to their center to discuss the services ResCare HomeCare provides.
During this annual private meeting, Executive Director Kathy Dzuris and her staff speak with Lt. Gov. McConell about where the branches are located, the needs of seniors in their community and the website maintained by the Office of Aging that serves as a source for home care, adult day care, meals and other information for aging individuals.
Lt. Gov. McConell’s stayed at the branch much longer than he and his entourage intended, as both parties had a lot to share with each other. Overall, Lt. Gov. McConell is so appreciative of the services that ResCare HomeCare provides and, after his visit, is more confident than ever in helping local seniors.
“I believe that it is very important for ResCare HomeCare to play an active role in South Carolina politics,” Executive Director Kathy Dzuris said. “That way we can create footprints in South Carolina and be recognized as leaders in home care in our state.”
