Home Care In Clover, SC

Home Care Clover, SC

They say that your golden years are the best years of your life. For most older Americans, that's how it should be - a time to relax, reflect, and live life in a familiar place. After all, senior citizens in the U.S. have worked tirelessly to build a better economy, serve their communities, and raise families.

However, as seniors grow older, completing daily tasks like showering and enjoying activities such as visiting the historic Carhartt Mansion Ruins gets harder without someone by their side. Unfortunately, many older Americans aren't able to rely on their adult children for help. The reality in today's world is that family members do not have the skills or time to dedicate to caring for their parents. That's where Always Best Care Senior Services comes in.

Our in-home care services are for people who prefer to stay at home as they grow older but need ongoing care that family or friends cannot provide. More and more older adults prefer to live far away from long-term, institutionalized facilities and closer to the place where they feel most comfortable - their home. Home care in Clover, SC is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

“Always Best Care service was very helpful in locating an assisted living facility for my Mother. Very professional and I would use them again.”


“It was time to consider alternative living arrangements for my mom. She was living on her own in a single-family home that she loved. She was in need of assistance with daily household chores, driving, and managing daily functions. I was given Phil Davidson's name from a social worker. He explained that Phil (and his company Always Best Care), may be a good resource for me and my mom. We began with some in home care (3-5 days a week). Phil met my mom, established a great working relationship with her, and had one of his staff members become my mom's in home caregiver. Phil took the time to get to know my mom and aligned her needs and personality with the right person to help her. Eventually we needed to look for an Assisted Living community. Phil was there to guide us. He arranged meetings with a variety of communities and toured with them with us. Phil knew the right questions to ask and always kept my mom's wishes on his checklist. I especially liked that Phil does not get paid by us, but rather by the facility that we ended up choosing. Phil and his staff were great to work with. Exceptionally professional and understanding of my mom.”

Rich S.

“I had a wonderful experience using Always Best Care Senior Services! The owner, Phil Davidson, along with our wonderful caregiver, Sarah , came to my house so that I could meet them and get to know them before my parents moved in with my family for several months! As we sat discussing our plan of care, I got the feeling they would treat my parents like part of their family! And they sure did! Sarah was kind, patient and very knowledgeable with my parents and their medical issues. Sarah was so helpful to me and my family! I would not have been able to make it through those months without her! I felt at ease and had no worries when I was at work, or having some ME time! I knew my parents were in caring and trustworthy hands! So, I would highly recommend Always Best Care senior Services!!”

Stephanie C.

“Phil, I just wanted to recount to you what my Mother told me on the phone this morning about your employee, and my parent's caretaker, Vicky Jo. Vicky Jo started with my parents in March of 2012, during a very difficult time. My father had fallen and broken his neck, on top of coping with Parkinson's. My mother took care of him, as well as their home and while we could help some, the day to day chores took a toll on her. We were afraid we were going to lose her health as well. In a huge stroke of luck, we were able to find a two-bedroom apartment at Chandler Place which would provide meals and emergency response services, alleviating a good bit of my mom's responsibilities and stress. In an even bigger stroke of luck, we began using Vicky Jo two hours every morning to help my father with bathing and dressing. In the months that followed, Vicky Jo has not only provided physical support, but significant moral support to both my parents. She is very capable, upbeat and genuine. My mother is absolutely devoted to her and feels she can trust her with anything. We couldn't be more grateful for her, and for you as well for providing her to us. I also want to take a moment to thank you, as you have gone above and beyond in your interaction and care of my parents. I can tell you truly care about my folks and their well being and it is such an amazing thing to see in this day and age when everything seems like it is only about the money. Blessing to you and your business. I know that you will be a God Send to other families as well and I wish you the best. Please know that if you are ever in need of a referral, I would be delighted to provide one for you.”

Barbara S.

“It is a pleasure doing business with a professional and ethical company”

Kristen B.

“Phil, We so love Sara and are very appreciative for the way you run your business. You really stand out in an industry and a time when people just go through the motions. You are a very special man and I pray that you will be very successful in your business.”

Karissa L.

“Thank you and your team for providing the great help and assistance during this summer. The care givers that we had were excellent and very professional. Thanks for being so flexible with the scheduling.”

John R.

“Dear Phil, "We would like to thank you and your staff for providing such wonderful live-in care for our Grandfather from June through October 2013. Our family found ourselves in the most unimaginable situation when our Grandmother was unexpectedly hospitalized in late May and ultimately passed away in June. As you know, she was the sole caregiver for our Grandfather who has severe Alzheimer's disease. We are so very fortunate that we discovered your agency! You were able to promptly place qualified caregivers in his home and this gave our family immediate peace of mind. The level of care and compassion that you and your caregivers demonstrated toward our Grandfather is more than we ever anticipated and we will be forever grateful. You all walked with him through the terrible tragedy of losing his wife of 67 years. You and your staff provided extraordinary physical and emotional care for him through his grief and made getting him back to a "normal" life your top priority upon her death. In addition to the care you all provided my Grandfather, you were so kind to help educate us on the progression of Alzheimer's. You were a wonderful resource to us on what to expect in the next phases of this disease and help us plan for long-term care for him. While we are very sad to have to place him in a memory care-assisted living facility, we made the decision knowing that this will be the best place for him as he ages and his disease worsens. Your guidance and expertise in helping us choose the right facility for him helped make this daunting task bearable. Thank you again for all that you have done for our grandfather and for our family! We will be forever grateful!”

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Clover, SC?


Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it is especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age.


When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.


The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.


At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one gets older, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

Home Care Clover, SC
Respite Care

Respite Care Services

According to AARP, more than 53 million adults living in the U.S. provide care to someone over 50 years old. Unfortunately, these caregivers experience stress, exhaustion, and even depression. Our respite care services help family caregivers address urgent obligations, spend time with their children, and enjoy nearby activities. Perhaps more importantly, respite care gives family members time to recharge and regroup. Taking personal time to de-stress reduces the risk of caregiver burnout. So, if you've always wanted to eat at the local Victoria's Diner or visit President James K. Polk State Historic Site, don't feel bad. Doing so is great for both you and your loved one.

At the end of the day, our goal is to become a valuable part of your senior's daily routine. That way, we may help give them the highest quality of life possible. We know that staying at home is important for your loved one, and we are here to help make sure that is possible.

If you have been on the fence about non-medical home care, there has never been a better time than now to give your senior the care, assistance, and companionship they deserve.

Benefits of Home Care in Clover, SC

Aging in Place: The Preferred Choice for Most Seniors

While it's true that some seniors have complicated medical needs that prevent them from staying at home, aging in place is often the best arrangement for seniors and their families. With a trusted caregiver, seniors have the opportunity to live with a sense of dignity and do so as they see fit - something that is unavailable to many older people today.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a strange nursing home, seniors have the chance to stay at home where they feel the happiest and most comfortable.

Here are just a few of the reasons why older men and women prefer to age at home:

How much does a senior's home truly mean to them?

A study published by the American Society on Aging found that more than half of seniors say their home's emotional value means more than how much their home is worth in monetary value. It stands to reason, then, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old.

With the help of elderly care in Clover, SC, seniors don't have to age in a sterilized care facility. Instead, they can age gracefully in the place they want to be most: their home. In contrast, seniors who move to a long-term care facility must adapt to new environments, new people, and new systems that the facility implements. At this stage in life, this kind of drastic change can be more harmful than helpful.

Institutional care facilities like nursing homes often put large groups of people together to live in one location. On any given day, dozens of staff members and caregivers run in and out of these facilities. Being around so many new people in a relatively small living environment can be dangerous for a seniors' health and wellbeing. When you consider that thousands of seniors passed away in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, opting for in-home care is often a safer, healthier choice for seniors.

Aging in place has been shown to improve seniors' quality of life, which helps boost physical health and also helps insulate them from viral and bacterial risks found in elderly living facilities.

For many seniors, the ability to live independently with assistance from a caregiver is a priceless option. With in-home care, seniors experience a higher level of independence and freedom - much more so than in other settings like a nursing home. When a senior has the chance to age in place, they get to live life on their own terms, inside the house that they helped make into a home. More independence means more control over their personal lives, too, which leads to increased levels of fulfillment, happiness, and personal gratification. Over time, these positive feelings can manifest into a healthier, longer life.

More independence, a healthier life, and increased comfort are only a few benefits of aging in place. You have to take into consideration the role of cost and convenience. Simply put, it's usually easier and more affordable to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, seniors who age in the comfort of their homes can save thousands of dollars per month.

In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, are often less expensive than long-term solutions, which can cost upwards of six figures per year. To make matters worse, many residential care facilities are reluctant to accept long-term care insurance and other types of payment assistance.

With Always Best Care's home care services, seniors and their families have a greater level of control over their care plans. In-home care gives seniors the chance to form a bond with a trusted caregiver and also receive unmatched care that is catered to their needs. In long-term care facilities, seniors and their loved ones have much less control over their care plan and have less of a say in who provides their care.

 Elderly Care Clover, SC

Affordable Care

In-home care is a valuable resource that empowers seniors to age in place on their own terms. However, a big concern for many families and their loved ones is how much in-home care costs. If you're worried that in-home care is too expensive, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is one of the most affordable senior care arrangements available.

Typically, hiring an Always Best Care in-home caregiver for a few hours a week is more affordable than sending your loved one to a long-term care facility. This is true even for seniors with more complex care needs.

At Always Best Care, we will work closely with you and your family to develop a Care Plan that not only meets your care needs, but your budget requirements, too. Once we discover the level of care that you or your senior need, we develop an in-home care plan that you can afford.

In addition to our flexible care options, families should also consider the following resources to help offset potential home care costs:

If your loved one qualifies, Medicaid may help reduce in-home care costs. Review your SC's Medicaid program laws and benefits, and make sure your senior's financial and medical needs meet Medicaid eligibility requirements.
Attendance and aid benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.
Many senior care services like in-home care are included in long-term care insurance options. Research different long-term care solutions to find a plan that provides coverage for senior care.
Home care can be included as part of a senior's private insurance plan. Read over your loved one's insurance policy carefully or speak with their insurance provider to determine if in-home care is covered.
Depending on the life insurance plan, you may be able to apply your policy toward long-term care. You may be able to use long-term-care coverage to help pay for in-home elderly care.
 Senior Care Clover, SC

Compassionate Care. Trusted Caregivers.

When you or your senior loved one needs assistance managing daily tasks at home, finding a qualified caregiver can be challenging. It takes a special kind of person to provide reliable care for your senior loved one. However, a caregiver's role involves more than meal preparation and medication reminders. Many seniors rely on their caregivers for companionship, too.

Our companion care services give seniors the chance to socialize in a safe environment and engage in activities at home. These important efforts boost morale and provide much-needed relief from repetitive daily routines. A one-on-one, engaging conversation can sharpen seniors' minds and give them something in which to be excited.

At Always Best Care, we only hire care providers that we would trust to care for our own loved ones. Our senior caregivers in Clover, SC understand how important it is to listen and communicate with their seniors. A seemingly small interaction, like a short hug goodbye, can make a major difference in a senior's day. Instead of battling against feelings of isolation, seniors begin to look forward to seeing their caregiver each week.

Understanding the nuances of senior care is just one of the reasons why our care providers are so great at their job.

Unlike some senior care companies, our caregivers must undergo extensive training before they work for Always Best Care. In addition, our caregivers receive ongoing training throughout the year. This training ensures that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect. During this training, they will brush up on their communication skills, safety awareness, and symptom spotting. That way, your loved one receives the highest level of non-medical home care from day one.

Assisted Living Referral Services

While it's true that many seniors prefer to age at home, sometimes in-home care isn't the best fit. For those seniors and their families, choosing an assisted living facility makes more sense. Unfortunately, finding the optimal care facility is easier said than done in today's day and age. That's when Always Best Care's assisted living referral services begin to make a lot of sense.

Assisted living is a form of housing intended for seniors who require varying degrees of medical and personal attention. Accommodations may include single rooms, apartments, or shared living arrangements. Assisted living communities are typically designed to resemble a home-like environment and are physically constructed to encourage the independence of residents.

Respite Care Clover, SC

At assisted living communities, seniors receive help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating. They may also benefit from coordination of services with outside healthcare providers, and monitoring of resident activities to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Caregivers who work at assisted living communities can also provide medication administration and personal care services for older adults.

Other services offered within assisted living communities can include some or all of the following:

  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Recreational Activities
  • Social Outings
  • Emergency Medical Response
  • Medication Monitoring
  • Family Visitation
  • Personal Care
 Caregivers Clover, SC

At Always Best Care, our representatives can match your senior's emotional, physical, and financial needs with viable assisted living communities nearby. Results are based on comparative data, so you can select the best choice for you or your loved one.

Always Best Care works closely with local senior living communities to gain valuable knowledge that we then use to help seniors and their loved ones make informed decisions. This information can include basic care and rent, resident availability, and services provided. Because Always Best Care is compensated by these communities, we provide senior living referral services at no extra cost to you.

Some of the most popular assisted living communities to consider in our area include the following:

  • Clover Senior Center/Clover Woman's Club
  • Lake Wylie Senior Living At Ease
  • Sunflower Springs of Lake Wylie
  • Chandler Place Assisted Living & Memory Care
  • Watercrest Senior Living Fort Mill
  • Terrace Ridge Assisted Living
Home Care Clover, SC

For many seniors, moving into a senior living community revolves around how and when they want to make a transition to more involved care. Some seniors are more proactive about transitioning to independent living. Others choose to remain home until their care needs or other requirements are satisfied. Remember - our staff is here to help. Contact our office today to learn more about assisted living communities and how we can find a facility that exceeds your expectations.

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

This initial consultation is crucial for our team to learn more about you or your elderly loved one to discover the level of care required. Topics of this consultation typically include:

A discussion of your needs and how our trained caregivers can offer assistance in the most effective way


A draft of your care plan, which includes highly detailed notes and a framework for the care that you or your senior will receive


Discuss payment options and help coordinate billing with your insurance provider


Our caregivers are trained to spot changes that clients exhibit, like mental and physical decline. As your trusted senior care company, we will constantly assess and update your Care Plan to meet any new emotional, intellectual, physical, and emotional needs.

If you have never considered in-home care before, we understand that you and your family may have concerns about your Care Plan and its Care Coordinator.

The rebirth of a former Clover textile mill site as townhomes and commercial space is almost ready to start. That site served as the town’s very first mill 133 years ago.

The town planning commission received applications to update and sign off on plans that would allow construction on Old North Main Street. The commission will hear those proposals Thursday night.

The town approved a development plan for the more than 6-acre Clover Mill project last year.

Eight properties at and surrounding 602 Old North Main St. will become townhomes and retail space, with some single-family homes and duplex lots. The property at Old North Main and Columbia streets is the former Clover Spinning Mill, or Coltex site.

According to National Register of Historic Places documentation on the Clover Downtown Historic District, the Clover Spinning Mill opened in 1890 as the town’s first mill and led to significant employment and population growth. County land records only show ownership back to 1965 when Halls Textile Machinery acquired it.

February 21, 2022 8:00 AM

Now owner K2 Development NC has applied for minor changes in lot layout, but also for final plat approval for the first area of construction. A plat is a layout of how land is divided. Final plat approval shows how development projects are subdivided and often is among the final steps before construction starts.

The entire Clover Mill project will have 52 townhomes, three single-family homes and six more duplex or townhome units, depending on a requested change for more townhomes. It also will have some commercial space.

Clover Mill West is the 1-acre portion up for final plat review. It’s at 113 Old North Main St., on the northwest corner of Columbia and Old North Main. Clover Mill West will include three homes and six townhomes.

K2 Development out of Charlotte bought the eight-property Clover Mill site for $250,000 in January, according to county land records. The properties hadn’t been sold since 2014, and were last run by Coltex Inc. prior to a late 2011 sale. The property has had several uses in machining, manufacturing and textile spinning.

Redevelopment plans submitted to the town offered a different picture, with driveways leading to townhomes with two-car garages, sidewalks, small parks and a playground.

New uses for former mill sites has been an issue not just in Clover, but in many area towns and cities that once thrived on textiles.

The Springs mill that once employed much of Fort Mill’s population became Elisha Park. An entire downtown corridor in Rock Hill continues to transform as University Center adds apartments, restaurants and retail.

Clover once had multiple mill sites in operation.

In 2019 the town held a workshop in search of plans for the former American Thread property at 401 S. Main St. That 16-acre site is about a mile south from the Clover Mill redevelopment. A plumbing company out of Charlotte owns it. The property hasn’t changed hands since 2014.

“The owner of the American Thread site does not appear to have any immediate plans to improve the property,” said Allison Harvey, town administrator.

The Clover Mill update isn’t the only large proposal for the town.

Destiny’s Calling Ministries in Charlotte applied to build a faith-based campus on more than 12 acres between 303 and 305 Cheek Road. The church site would include a girls home, chapel and pavilion.

The large, open site is beside both the Cloverbrook and Clover Meadows neighborhoods. Destiny’s Calling wants to put about 3,200 square feet of group home space, a 5,400-square-foot chapel and a 2,400-square-foot pavilion on its property.

Potential future uses, according to its application, include two more group homes for girls, four homes and four duplexes.

Destiny’s Calling will bring its concept plan for review by the planning commission Thursday and then will have to submit more detailed site plans for the various construction pieces.

Vacant buildings on Main Street will soon be transformed into restaurants and cafes.

CLOVER, S.C. — The town of Clover has a five-year plan to revitalize its Main Street area with new businesses, signage, and connectivity.

Clover’s downtown is filled with empty buildings after many small businesses were forced to shut down during the pandemic.

“A lot of things happened with the economy and places had to shut down," Clover’s Main Street Director Alicia Griffith said.

For the latest breaking news, weather and traffic alerts, download the WCNC Charlotte mobile app and enable push notifications.

Now, the town is rebuilding for the future. Several vacant commercial spaces along Main Street have been bought by developers who plan to breathe new life into them.

Clover native Justin McFalls announced recently he bought four units in between The Clover Station and The Vault.

“It’s always been a dream for me to own this building,” McFalls told WCNC Charlotte.

More houses are being built and the small town is growing. McFalls wants to give people more places to go for a fun night out.

"We want them to stay downtown," he said. "On the weekends, Friday and Saturday nights, it’s like a ghost town."

McFalls' first tenant is a pizza restaurant called King of Fire. Plus, Griffith told WCNC Charlotte two coffee shops are opening in the area this year.

"A lot of the buildings have sat for so long," Griffith said. "So, there's a lot of work that needs to be done to bring them up to code and some other stuff. So, we're working on some business incentives to really try to offset some of that cost."

One incentive is a $3,000 grant for businesses to clean up their facades. Griffith said they're also working to establish historic overlays, which will not only protect the town's character but offer tax breaks for businesses.

You can stream WCNC Charlotte on Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV, just download the free app.

Clover is working with Main Street America, a national program Monroe, Belmont, and Waxhaw have used to implement a five-year growth plan.

The goal is to boost economic development by recruiting restaurants and retail while keeping Clover’s small-town charm.

Griffith told WCNC Charlotte the town is also looking at properties to create more parking for the downtown area in the future.

It’s 10 a.m. on a Monday in Clover, S.C., and about three dozen customers hankering for a Southern breakfast fill up the booths in busy Victoria’s Diner.

A painted chalkboard takes up an entire wall with the day’s specials. Included among them is Victoria’s Benedict — it’s a homemade biscuit with a choice of bacon, sausage or livermush topped with two eggs and gravy for $6.99.

On this day, lifelong Clover resident Bo Legg walks in the front door, and immediately, people notice. He waves at some and nods at others with a smile. On his way to a booth, family friend and customer Carol Jenkins laughs and takes him by the arm, offering him a hug. “How’s your mama doing?” she asks.

Legg is Clover’s new mayor-elect. He ousted incumbent Mayor Greg Holmes, who has been in office since 2017, on Nov. 7 by collecting 567 votes out of 890 ballots cast — nearly 64%.

Legg said he ran for the office because it’s his civic duty to represent his town.

“I’m trying to teach my children that if you want to change something, you have to do it by using your muscle,” he said.

Legg has served on the town council since January 2022.

“I love this town,” he said. “I’m trying to protect it for my kids and for everyone else’s children so they can have the same experience I did.”

Legg said he likes to stay active in the community. An example: On a recent weekend, Legg went to a Veterans Day event, followed by the town’s Highland Games and then to a Joy 4 Tots motorcycle rally.

Monday, after coffee at Victoria’s, Legg took down about two dozen American flags he put out for Veterans Day.

Legg said he loves being a voice for the town of Clover — but not a voice for housing developers.

The 44-year-old said he wants the town to stop high-density residential growth, mainly because of the stress he believes it’s causing schools.

“Go by any school in town at dismissal time and look at the lines around the building,” he said. “Our schools are going to be overrun and that’s not good for anybody.”

The Clover school district will build a new high school and an elementary school by 2026. Currently, the Clover school district has seven elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school.

On the school district’s website, an FAQ stated projections from an independent, outside firm show that student enrollment in the Clover School District will exceed this projection in the 2026-2027 school year.

District spokesman Bryan Dillon referenced schools that are at capacity or near capacity, but said the district has schools that have space for students.

Clover, a town of about 7,300 residents 30 miles southwest of Charlotte, encompasses a 4.5-mile radius. Even though Lake Wylie residents attend Clover schools, the Clover mayor does not represent the busy Lake Wylie area, which is not incorporated.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Clover has grown nearly 11% from 2020 to 2022..

Schools are not the only things Legg is concerned about.

Legg said he would also like to bring infrastructure up-to-date, including fixing broken water mains and addressing problems with sewer lines.

Legg said he would like to grow business in the community.

He said he wants to focus on bringing industry to the town, namely to Westgate Industrial Park, which he says is overgrown.

“If you look at the comprehensive plan and where we want to be … we are very residential top-heavy,” he said. “We don’t have that commercial and industrial to balance that out.”

Case in point: Legg said he had been to one ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new business over the past two years he has been on town council, but has been to three over the past month.

He wants to see more.

“I wish I was at a ribbon-cutting every week,” he said.

For current mayor Holmes, this is not the last time the community will see him, he said on a Facebook post.

“My head is not down and (I) remain high because I don’t need a title to make a difference in my community,” he wrote.
