Caregivers- Greenville.

Alan has been a resident of Greenville for 33 years. He moved from the Boston Area with Arthur Young & Co. CPA?s. He has two children Carlyn,33 and David 31.

Organizations he volunteered for included, The Warehouse Theater, Camperdown Academy, Meals on Wheels, Guardian ad-Litem program and the National MS Society. In 2006 he turned 55 years old
and he reevaluated his career path after the suicide of his sister. He decided to take his volunteer work of helping the elderly and people with disabilities to the next level by opening Homewatch Caregivers here in the Upstate.

?I was so honored to be at the conference when Alan received this award. Homewatch Caregivers is a great partner of Heartland Hospice and we were there speaking to the other offices about our
successes here in Greenville. Alan and his caregivers provide excellent care and our partnership gives our patients the best care possible.? Susan Keitt, Administrator of Heartland Hospice in Simpsonville.
