Palmetto Southern Comfort - committed to improving quality of life
About Palmetto Southern Comfort
Palmetto Southern Comfort was birthed as two missing elements in healthcare were being overshadowed by paperwork and high turnover through the entire healthcare matrix. Companionship and empathy. These significant pieces of healthcare delivery can be hard to build when there is a constant rollover of new staff working with mom every three months or professionals are being so overworked their performance levels decline. Many of them posses excellent skills and compassion for care they are simply overwhelmed.
Rolanda Goodwin, the owner is a SC Licensed Long Term Care Administrator and career includes working for SC Department of Mental Health, SC Board of Disabilities and Special Needs and various private owned nursing homes in South Carolina. She has worked at all levels of the healthcare field from administrative, hands on and leadership positions.
Working in these agencies an increase understanding in an individuals desire to age in place and the passion to provide a more personable healthcare experience were driving factors in the birth of Palmetto Southern Comfort.
Aging in place no longer means retiring to a rocking chair to watch TV and occasionally play bingo. Today’s seniors and the disabled want to maintain adventure, require stimulation, and want to still learn new things. Seniors and the disabled want to live colorful and full lives!

We are taught the importance of "it takes a village" and sometimes we have to extend our village and lend a helping hand to our neighbor.
Sitting down listening to childhood stories, taking the patience to help a former school teacher who now has Alzheimer's feed themselves, maintaining a Veterans dignity who requires incontinence care makes the a world of difference in the quality of life.
