Nightingale’s Nursing serves home care patients across the entire state of South Carolina. Here is what they have to say about our in-home services:
Our family has been a client of Nightingale’s for several years. We came to them needing help immediately, and they were there for us. We’ve had several last minute changes in aides, and they were there for us. We needed a new aide processed & tested quickly so he could help us on a trip, and they did it without a hitch.
Our aides become part of our family, as does the staff of Nightingale’s: always friendly, always willing to go the extra mile for us, always jumping in to help if an aide is not available at the last minute.
We have worked with other agencies through the years and Nightingale’s gets our vote: for professionalism, for well-chosen aides, and for all-around understanding of the needs of those who can’t help themselves.
Thank you, Nightingale’s Nursing, one and all!
“On behalf of my wife I am deeply grateful to have someone like Donna Etters in my home. She gives my wife a lot of attention and care which I am thankful for. She goes out of her way to make sure my wife is well taken care of. She goes above and beyond her duties to make sure my wife has everything she needs and also to take care of her. It’s nice to have someone of her abilities to have in my home, if i need to leave my home to run my daily errands I am at ease knowing that my wife is in the very best hands and getting the very best care when I return It’s a comfort to know that your agency goes above and beyond to place such people in our homes and I truly thankful to you all at Nightingales Nursing for this service. Thank you for all you are doing.”

“Technically I’m a C6 quadriplegic, I don’t have use of my hands but I get around pretty dog gone good when I’m in my wheelchair. I said that to say this. I take great pains but much more than that I take great pleasure in the fact that I’m able to live alone (it’s all about the independence). This could not be possible without the fact that Nightingale provides someone to get me up in the morning and put me down at night. It also matters tremendously that I’m able to accomplish this without the help of my family. I’ll never be able to spend 24 hours alone but with the help of Nightingale I can at least spend all day and all night alone. I can’t list everyone but you know who you are. From the bottom of my heart thank each and every one of you.”
“Both my wife and I have been able to relax and sleep much better because we are confident of the reliability that Nightingales provides. When I first became ill, we tried several assistants and could not find reliable people nor an organization that seem to care. Nightingale’s organiza-tional structure which allows for “runners” has given us confidence that we can work out sched-uling to keep all doctors and other appointments. In particular, Stacey Nelson’s performance, has been exemplary. I’ve been able to count on her being present whenever she has been scheduled. When car troubles or illness have occurred, we have been able to count on Nightingales to cover for her with a “runner”. If I occasionally tell her she can leave early, she often asked to stay on to finish certain tasks. Her attitude and ap-proach is friendly and cheerful. She’s always willing to go the extra mile.”
Following a commendable job by the team of professionals at Nightingale’s in response to a particularly dangerous situation where three employees put themselves in harms way to protect a client having a crisis, we received this email which the client wanted us to share with those searching for help in South Carolina:
Thank you for not dropping me as a client. I see now that this company is the best in the state and you do really care about the patients. So on behalf of all of us thank you and God bless you. Mrs Gloria , you are a sweet person and I am glad to be a part of the company.
I just wanted to call and tell you how much you and this company have meant to me over the last two years. I’ve been with other companies and have been paralyzed for most of my life so I know the difference Nightingale’s has made in my life and the life of my aide. She loves working there, I love ya’ll and I just wanted to let you know you are very special to us.
I was depressed following an accident that left me paralyzed. The Nightingale’s Group encouraged me to begin a rigorous exercise program and one year later, I feel like a new man.
My father just needs a few hours of assistance providing his evening meals. He lives alone and tends not to eat properly anymore. Now a Nightingale comes by to cook and socialize. He really looks forward to her coming.
My aunt is on 24 hour care due to her advancing Alzheimer’s. She is very happy in her own home. So long as there is a Nightingale to care for her, we don’t have to worry about anything anymore.
My son is paralyzed from an accident, but still a young man. The Nightingale’s group understands his unique needs. They work hard to help him maintain his dignity as well as his independence. By coordinating and delegating his bowel program within their organization, he is able to allow his aide to help with that particular skilled service so that additional people do not have to come into his life. By setting up a specialized exercise program, they help him to be the best that he can be.
I’ve used other agencies before, but I never felt like I had a personal relationship with them. When you are admitted into Nightingale’s, they really treat you like they care about you as a person, not a client.
Mom is blind and I have to work. We had almost accepted the fact that Mom would have to go into a nursing home until we met up with The Nightingale’s group. They’re dependable and trustworthy. We can count on them to get the job done.
