Caring for Seniors in the Heart of the Carolinas
As we grow older, one thing becomes abundantly clear: home is truly where the heart is and being able to continue living there is extremely important.
Every corner seems to hold a precious memory, a story of the love and laughter shared with family and friends.
Helping older adults continue to live and thrive in the homes they love, and to continue creating new memories there, is the goal of each team member at Carolina Hearts Home Care. Our professionals in home care in Rockingham and the surrounding areas not only feel like part of our family—they will feel like an extension of yours, providing the exceptional care and compassion you expect.
We’re far from just another cookie-cutter home care provider.
Owned and operated by husband and wife team Bryan and Brigitte Laney, and with deep roots in the local communities, we have been serving older adults throughout the heart of the Carolinas since 2005.
Families trust the RN-supervised care we provide to seniors in the comfort of their own home. We take the time to get to know each person as a unique individual, to understand what each client wants to accomplish with their in-home care services, and to offer just the right support, assistance, and companionship.
Our highly knowledgeable and efficient team is committed to creative care solutions and timely, transparent communication. Carolina Hearts is a care partner that local seniors can rely on to help them overcome any challenges and achieve an overall improved quality of life.
Our Care Team
At the heart of our care services are the dedicated professionals who have a passion for ensuring that seniors can remain both safe and independent at home.
To ensure the Carolina Hearts Home Care team meets our rigorous standards, we adhere to a hiring protocol that includes:
When we find just the right person we’d want caring for our own loved ones at home, we then provide initial and ongoing training – both online and in-person/hands-on, as well as supervision and oversight by a staff RN.
We also fully insure each member of our team with professional liability and worker’s comp coverage in order to provide the families we serve with peace of mind.
Finally, we carefully consider each client’s specific requests and provide the best match for his or her care based on personality, interests, caregiver strengths, and more.
The end result is an improved quality of life for the seniors in our care from an exceptional team of trusted, compassionate, and highly skilled caregivers.
CARES® Dementia Specialists: A Higher Level of Care
Effectively caring for someone with dementia requires skill, creativity, and expertise. At Carolina Hearts Home Care, we go the extra mile for seniors with dementia by providing additional training to our caregivers by RNs who are CARES Dementia Specialists. These credentialed care professionals have completed a 40-hour dementia care training program, passed a CARES Dementia Specialist exam, and renew their certifications every two years.
The CARES program recognizes and tests a user’s dementia understanding and dementia care knowledge from the Alzheimer’s Association Dementia Care Practice Recommendations and published CARES research studies of select CARES online dementia care training programs.
CARES is the only online dementia care training program recognized by the CMS to meet the Section 6121 training requirements of the Affordable Care Act for enhanced nursing aide training.
There are only 17 individuals throughout North Carolina who have earned this achievement, and we’re pleased to have trained and hired three of them, making us the top choice for dementia care services in our area.
Carolina Hearts Home Care Relias Learning
Ensuring that our care team is up-to-date on the safest and most innovative care techniques in order to meet the diverse needs of clients is one of our top priorities.

Through Relias, each member of our care team accesses mandatory, on-going training opportunities to help them grow professionally and increase their caregiving skills. With a commitment to continued professional development, we ensure our clients receive consistent, high-level care in order to achieve health and wellness goals.
