Care Services

A wide range of care services

Always Best Care of Upper Chesapeake is determined to help the senior community live their retirement years comfortably in a safe environment with proper support and care. We offer non-medical in home care services in Baltimore County and surrounding areas. We can serve your senior’s every non-medical, personal care and social need with compassion, support and assistance.

What makes our caregivers the best:

We have bonded and insured care providers, who are also covered by Worker’s Compensation for clients’ safety. Our employees have to pass a thorough criminal background check before we assign them senior home care duties in Cecil County and nearby regions. We also perform reference checks on caregivers. In addition, our care providers receive comprehensive training upon being hired and ongoing training too. At ABC, we employ all our caregivers. Therefore, you do not have to worry about forming an employer/employee relation with caregivers.

How we help seniors age in place?

It is common for elders to prefer living in their own home instead of a senior housing option. According to a survey, nine out of ten individuals want to age in place. If you or your elderly loved one wants to stay in the comfort of home in twilight years, then it is advised to be prepared accordingly.

Family members may face challenges in managing time between their responsibilities or they may lack the skills needed to provide good care for elders. Hiring caregivers is the best solution in this situation. This is where ABC comes forward to help families seeking home care and assistance services in Baltimore County and nearby regions.

Alzheimer’s and Dementia care

At Always Best Care of Upper Chesapeake, we understand that caring for an Alzheimer’s or dementia patient can be taxing on a family caregiver. With each day’s new challenges and patterns of behavior, it gets gradually even more difficult. Our skilled caregivers are trained to provide that extra attention and care your loved one needs to cope with the disease. Our caregivers also receive ongoing training to better serve Alzheimer/dementia patients with home health care in Baltimore County and nearby areas.

How can you fund senior care?

  1. Personal or retirements savings
