Meet Our Team
Wriston Marshburn and Catharine Marshburn- Owners

Wriston Marshburn and Catharine Marshburn, Owners

Wriston and Catharine moved to Anderson in 2009 to open Home Instead. Wriston is very familiar with the Upstate of South Carolina as he graduated from Furman University. He has a love and passion for seniors and had always wanted to own his own business. After practicing Law for 12 years in a large corporate firm he left practicing Law and opened the Home Instead office in Anderson, SC in 2009. After over 13 years of serving seniors in the Anderson community Wriston and Catharine feel they have been able to give the senior population what they want, and that is stay in their own home safely and independently as they age.

To Us It's Personal is the Home Instead motto and Wriston and Catharine live by that as they both have their own personal experiences with seeing their grandparents and now their own parents age and need the services of caregivers in their homes. This is very personal to them and because of that they have compassion and understanding and can put themselves in the shoes of both their clients and the client's loved ones.

Quality is the most important thing to Wriston and Catharine both on the client side and caregiver side. Home Instead Anderson has been in the top 10 in quality in the Home Instead network since 2019 in both client and caregiver satisfaction. "We work hard on a daily basis to make sure both our clients and caregivers are happy. We have two Client Care Coordinators who make home visits to every client to make sure they are receiving the care they need, and our caregivers are given extensive training before entering the home of a client and go through a mentor program once they are hired," Wriston and Catharine say.

Wriston and Catharine have been married for 27 years and have two adult children. They love spending time with their family and enjoy being outdoors hiking or being anywhere on the water. They say, "Owning Home Instead in Anderson has truly been a blessing. Knowing that what we do day in and day out for our senior population is a very rewarding thing."

Rona Overton- Office Manager / Staffing Manager

Rona Overton, Office Manager / Staffing Manager

Rona is our Office Manager and our Staffing Manager. Rona was our first employee when we opened our doors in May of 2009. We hired her to answer the phones and generally help Wriston in the office. Ten years later Wriston and I can say that Rona is the one who has helped build our business into what it is today. She stuck it out in those first two years when we weren't sure if the business was going to make it or not. She has gone through all the ups and downs that a business goes through and has worked every job in the office. Rona's daily focus is on making sure the office is running smoothly and she also oversees the staffing of our caregivers to our clients. She is loyal, faithful and invaluable and Wriston and I don't know what we would do without her.

Music, cooking, reading and spending time with her wonderful family and friends are some of Rona's favorite things. Rona is very active in her church serving as a trustee, an usher, assistant clerk/secretary and assistant teacher for the 6-8 year old primary class.

"Working for Home Instead Senior Care has been the most rewarding job I have ever had. I am very focused on making sure that the client and caregiver relationship is a good fit for all, so that our seniors can feel safe in their own homes and will have peace of mind knowing that a responsible CAREGiver is there to help them in every way possible."
