Stephan Swafford, Owner
Originally from Columbia, South Carolina, Stephan Swafford recently acquired the Right at Home in North Augusta when the previous owners retired after 12 years in business.
Swafford is a former Augusta local and recently moved back after living out West for five years. Before he moved west, he was a member of the board of directors for the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and worked in management at Verizon Wireless. Looking to get into business ownership and moving back to Augusta, Swafford searched for opportunities where he could combine his strong business acumen with his passion to help people. By taking over the local Right at Home, he hopes to alleviate the stress and worry that comes with handling care for aging loved ones.
Stephan worked in telecommunications for 27 years, the last 22 of those were with Verizon Wireless. He managed multiple retail locations and handled indirect sales. Stephan thought owning a business would be a good next step, and he wanted to help others and get them where they wanted to be. Stephan is originally from South Carolina, and he wanted to be close to family and get involved with something that was meaningful. Right at Home was a great fit.
