Listed among the best places to retire in Caring’s Senior Living report, Baltimore, Maryland, appeals to seniors looking for a vibrant location with a small-town feel, low cost of living and access to plentiful natural and cultural amenities. The 2019 Genworth Cost of Care Survey reports that residents here pay an average of $4,624 per month for home care services. While home care is different from home health care in that it does not involve medical services, Baltimore has some of the nation’s best hospitals for geriatrics, including Johns Hopkins Beacham Center for Geriatric Medicine and the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Below we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Baltimore area – complete with services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled resources to help seniors and their families to access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
