As part of an ongoing effort to support members, the HCAOA South Carolina Chapter is surveying home care agencies to identify the major challenges they are experiencing in providing home care services. The survey will provide the Chapter with important information to serve as a resource to members and advocate on their behalf. All survey responses will be kept strictly confidential and any results published will not identify respondents. The survey is anonymous, and any information identifying a home care provider will not be compiled or released.
