This past weekend, the state of South Carolina experienced significant amounts of rain that lead to extreme flooding in surrounding areas causing quite an upheaval. This life-threatening natural disaster was something our state has not experienced in well over a century. There have been 267 roads and 134 bridges closed due to damages and flooding, dams breached and/or broken and at least 17,000 people who have registered for disaster aid for their homes or businesses. It has been absolutely devastating to watch so many homes be destroyed across the state. Unfortunately, the worst part is that there have been at least seventeen lives taken because of this horrific event; and our sincerest condolences go out to those families.
This traumatic event has not stopped Always Best Care from doing whatever it takes to make sure our clients and caregivers were safe and taken care of. Our staff has worked diligently to keep in contact with each client and thankfully the majority was not severely affected by the flooding. Several did not have family and/or friends looking out for them to ensure they each were safe and had food and water. With so many roads being out of commission during the flood, we made it our priority to get to the clients with the most care needs, rescheduling those who cancelled for safety reason. Since the flood, the roads have made it difficult for travel but we have been able to make sure all of our clients were rescheduled and taken care of for the rest of the week. In situations such as these, working together is the best attribute we can use to insure client and caregiver safety. With the sun back out and the devotion and unity of our community we hope to see our beautiful state rebuild to its former glory.
