Being surrounded by the comforts of home and family while healing can greatly lift a person’s spirits and ease recovery. Adventist Home Care Services, which is part of the Adventist HealthCare system, is honored to be celebrating its 40th anniversary of bringing healing home.

A dedicated team of skilled nurses, therapists, nursing aides and social workers provides home care services tailored to each patient’s specific needs, whether it is assistance with daily living activities or recovering after a hospital stay.

“Our goal is to provide compassionate, quality care that helps patients remain independent in their homes while facing a variety of health conditions and circumstances,” says Keith Ballenger, vice president of Adventist Home Care Services.

This past year, Adventist Home Care Services, one of the largest home care service agencies in Maryland, provided care to more than 6,000 patients.
