Carol Horton, Owner

​Carol's desire to make a difference in York and Chester counties was inspired by her personal experience as the primary caregiver for her mother from the late 1990s until her mother's death in March, 2004. Wishing to help other families who were caring for loved ones at home, Carol drew upon both her personal experience, as well as 22 years as a business professional, to explore opportunities to enable seniors to safely stay in their homes for as long as possible. After much research, she learned about Home Instead Senior Care and it quickly became clear that she'd found the way to help families provide support for their senior loved ones. 

In April of 2005, one year after her search had begun, Carol proudly opened the Home Instead Senior Care office in her home town of Rock Hill, SC. Home Instead Senior Care serving York and Chester counties has since been privileged to help hundreds of local families with quality homecare services for seniors. 

In her free time, Carol enjoys spending time with her daughter, playing and listening to music, gardening and bicycling.​​​


Patty LeClaire, Recruitment Coordinator

Patty spent 15 years in volunteer management before leaving the workforce in 2008 to care for her mother, who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. During that time, her mother was a client of Home Instead Senior Care. After her mother's death in 2010, Patty decided to become a professional CAREGiver for Home Instead Senior Care. Since becoming Recruitment Coordinator in September, 2012, Patty has been responsible for selecting and hiring new CAREGivers. 

Patty is the first-born child of a career Air Force family, moving frequently throughout her life to many tours of duty both in the US and overseas. She received her college education from Inter-American University in Puerto Rico and Memphis State University in Tennessee. When she's not at Home Instead Senior Care, Patty can be found gardening or spending time with her dog.​​​
