Brenda Gearhart, LPN
Director of Healthcare
Contact via Email

I began my career in the Healthcare field at the age of 19. I took care of a wonderful patient with quickly advancing dementia. I was responsible for her daily care and activities of daily life. Her dementia journey taught me quite a bit about dementia and the need for quality, caring professionals that specialize in dementia.

Being an active duty Army spouse, I was able to utilize those skills to continue to provide care to our elderly in need. Having lived in 2 countries and 5 states within an 18-year period, the one fact that came through was the need for the specialized care of our seniors.

I  look forward to taking care of you and your loved ones.

Gaalon Lukie
Life Engagement Manager
Contact via Email

I grew up in a small town in Greenwood County called Ninety Six. I am a graduate of Newberry  College with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science and currently working on my Master's in Management from Lander University. A fun fact about me is that I was part of the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization when I participated and won the title of Miss Newberry 2019. I am also a dance teacher at 3D Center of the Arts in Spartanburg and have been dancing for seventeen years. I found my love for the health and wellness field when I was volunteering with an old dance teacher at Wesley Commons in Greenwood, SC. From there, I went off to college to pursue my goal of working in a geriatric community. A goal that I can now say has become a reality.
