Megan Mendez is a trained nurse practitioner who has been in the medical field for 15 years and has worked with seniors for 8 years. She got into home care for seniors around 2020, closely following the pandemic, then purchased the daycare in 2021. She also owns a company called "Housecalls of Augusta" where she offers medical house calls for patients who may be unable to leave their house. Megan has a passion for helping people get the care they need and deserve. She owns a home care business for seniors, as well as a daycare for seniors, and what sets them apart is that they are nurse-owned and operated businesses. Megan noticed a strain in financial provision for home care which is what sparked her to begin this daycare. She is very relational and compassionate with her clients, wanting them to trust her and build a safe place for them. Megan and her staff are excited to bring East Cooper Senior Daycare to Aiken County in Summer of 2022! Help us welcome these friendly faces to Aiken County this summer.
