AmeriCare Midlands Owner
Rachael has more than 20 years of experience in the medical field and brings her passion for excellence in patient care to the in-home care discipline. As a registered vascular sonographer in Virginia, Florida, and now, for the past 12 years, in Lexington, South Carolina, she has seen the need for loving caregivers first hand. This witness of need and passion for clients is the driving force behind Rachael.
She understands that each one of us is unique; we have varied backgrounds, different needs, and specific wants. Rachael brings that philosophy to caregiving. She believes that getting to know each client and their families allows us to provide personalized care; care that will provide dignity and respect for the client and peace of mind for their loved ones.
Rachael has seen the need first-hand for in-home care. Rachael served as a caregiver for her mother after surgeries and illnesses while still working and caring for her own family. She came to understand the physical and emotional stress of caregiving while continuing her usual activities and realizes that it is essential for family caregivers to have time to care for themselves as well as their loved ones. Rachael has also seen the benefits of having a loved one who had a compassionate, trustworthy caregiver who wasn’t a family member.
Rachael enjoys spending time with her husband of 20 years, Carl, and their two school-age children. They are members of Saxe Gotha Presbyterian Church. She is an avid runner and enjoys adventures on the lake, traveling, and spending time with family. While originally from Richmond, Virginia, Rachael has made the Midlands of South Carolina her home and loves it here.
