Jason Taylor was recently hired as the director of operations of Agape Senior in Aiken.

A native of North Augusta, he’s been working with Agape Senior, which is one of the largest senior health care providers in the state, since 2009 at the facilities in Rock Hill, Myrtle Beach and Conway.

Taylor returned to this county to help the newly established Aiken office grow. Taylor said he had wanted to be a teacher initially but working for Agape Senior has given him the opportunity to educate people about dementia and senior care.

Taylor is a Winthrop University graduate, certified in the state and nationally as a assisted living facility administrator and an active member of the S.C. Association of Residential Care Homes and S.C. American College of Health Care Administrators.

Taylor said he not only loves being around people but also knowing that he’s part of an organization that’s making a positive impact. He said he’s thrilled to be sharing information about what Agape Senior has to offer with his hometown.
