My name is Russell Unthank and I’m the Senior Solutions Advisor for the Agape Senior Harbison location. I also own Mad Science of Columbia, a children’s science enrichment company for Pre-K to Middle School students.
I’m originally from West Columbia where my father, Bill Unthank, was the city administrator for 20 years and my brother, B. J. Unthank, is currently serving his second term on the West Columbia city council. I have a beautiful wife, Amanda, 2 boys, Dustin (13) and Andrew(7), and of course the “ruler of the roost” Emma Grace (4). I’ve had the pleasure of personally experiencing the services of Agape through my grandmother, Lyda Unthank, who still holds the record of the longest living resident at Agape...13 years.
Since joining the Agape Senior team, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people that help make Agape so special. It is my strong desire to continue the Agape tradition of a “Faith Based” organization whose mission is to provide the best possible care for seniors in a “Faith Based” environment. I’ve had the opportunity to really see and care for our residents knowing that it’s the little things in life that make it so special. To see our residents “glow” just by saying “hello”, getting them a banana, just listening to them, or even praying for them makes it good for the sole...on both sides.
I look forward each and every day to continue the Agape tradition by providing the best possible care for our seniors. I’m very enthusiastic about making sure that people feel comfortable and even excited to have not a place to stay, but a place to live. To give that person and their families a peace of mind about their decision to be with us at Agape, knowing that they or their loved one will live out the rest of their life with people who are willing to go the extra mile, make sacrifices and use their abilities to ensure a caring and loving environment. This can be a difficult time in their lives, but with Agape and our staff, we choose to make it easy for them for the rest of their lives.
I’m looking forward to making a difference in the lives of our seniors.
