Wendy Weisner is the owner/operator of Lowcountry Companions, a Mt Pleasant based company that provides exceptional care and companionship to seniors throughout the Charleston Tri-county region. Wendy’s goal is to provide in-home assisted living, so seniors can maintain the meaningful life that they deserve. Equally important, she has seen how family time moves from being frantic chore time, and then back to more relaxed quality time when a loved one’s day-to-day needs are being met.
Wendy has over 20 years experience in corporate sales, marketing, and management and over 10 years in the Senior Care industry.
Wendy is in her 50's and lives with her rescued golden retrievers. She started Lowcountry Companions Senior Care because she believes that older people who remain at home live longer and happier lives when they are surrounded by things that are meaningful to them. And like her caregivers, she wanted to do something fulfilling and worthwhile. "It's the best decision that I’ve ever made... this business. The intrinsic reward of making such a positive impact on, not only our client’s, but on the lives of the people that love them is beyond measure. It’s indescribable. Something happens every single day that reinforces what a great decision it really was. I don’t think I’ve ever been told "thank you, thank you, thank you’ so much in my entire life… and the best part is that We really love what we do."
"Everyday it is my mission to build a team that shares the Lowcountry Companions vision and commitment towards the seniors we serve. No other company provides the training or accountability measures that we do. That is why we are second to none. We treat our caregivers like family, and in turn, they do the same for our clients."
Lowcountry Companions Senior Care is a member of The Senior’s Choice® network, the largest senior care membership in the country; the SC Aging in Place Coalition; and the Lowcountry Senior Network, a networking organization for senior service providers in the Lowcountry. Along with volunteering, Wendy actively speaks to groups and organizations throughout the Lowcountry on topics such as Fall Prevention, Family Caregiving, Advance Directives, and Aging in Place Resources.
