Health Related Home Care is excited to be able to provide home health services to residents of Edgefield. Michelle Garner, RN the Community Nurse Liaison, spent most of 2011 in Edgefield County. She went business-to-business getting letters of support, speaking with the mayor, going to town and county council. She even setup a table at a local business asking residents to stop by and take a survey, to find out what the residents of Edgefield needed & wanted in a home health company.
Mrs. Garner said, “The residents of Edgefield have spoken and we have listened.” “We are here and ready to serve!” Health Related Home Care has been in business since 1995.
