How did your business begin?

In 2001, I founded Daybreak Adult Care Services with the goal to provide quality care to help senior clients remain in their homes and at their desired level of independence for as long as possible.

What is the mission of your business?

To go above and beyond is our standard, not an exception. At DayBreak, we strive to provide comprehensive care to our clients and improve quality of life in whatever way we can. We bring high quality care right to your door so that you or your loved one can get the care needed in an environment that is comfortable and familiar. Whether your loved one needs help around the house, assistance taking a shower, or more complex specialized care, our team can provide a solution that meets the gaps your family is struggling to fill.

What differentiates your business from other specialists in the field?

Daybreak is not a franchise but is locally owned and operates only in South Carolina, allowing Daybreak to customize in-home care that works best for everyone. Whether the client remains in their home, a nursing home, assisted living, or hospital setting, each client’s care is customized specifically with their needs in mind.

How has your life experience made you successful in your field today?

As a child I grew up in the senior care industry. My mother was a director of nursing at a local nursing home where I spent countless hours as a child. This led me to my passion for the senior community.

How does your company give back to the Columbia community?

I serve on the Department of Natural Resources’ Marine Advisory Committee. I am a founding member of the Caregiver Coalition of the Midlands and serve on the board of the Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter. On Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2022, Palmetto Place received a major donation from DayBreak Adult Care Services. The $20,000 contribution was part of a matching gift campaign that ultimately raised more than $40,000 for Palmetto Place, a home for children and teens who have faced abuse, abandonment, neglect and/or homelessness.
