She was a great help; addressed all my questions and concerns and gave me peace of mind that my parents were in good hands. Their caregiver is wonderful and very competent. I don't have to worry about them or become a detective to find out what is going on with them in Maryland. Although my parents were a little skeptical at first, Elaine and her staff have put their mind at ease and made them feel very comfortable about the entire experience.

Words can not express my sincere gratitude for the awesome care provided to my parents.”

How does In-home Senior Care in Perryville, MD work?

Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it's especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.

The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.

At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one ages, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

Aging in Place: The Preferred Choice for Most Seniors

While it's true that some seniors have complicated medical needs that prevent them from staying at home, aging in place is often the best arrangement for seniors and their families. With a trusted caregiver, seniors have the opportunity to live with a sense of dignity and do so as they see fit.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a unfamiliar assisted living community, seniors have the chance to stay at home where they feel the happiest and most comfortable.

Here are just a few of the reasons why older men and women prefer to age at home:


How much does a senior's home truly mean to them? A study published by the American Society on Aging found that more than half of seniors say their home's emotional value means more than how much their home is worth in monetary value. It stands to reason, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old. With the help of elderly care in Perryville, MD, seniors don't have to age in a sterilized care facility. Instead, they can age gracefully in the place they want to be most: their home. In contrast, seniors who move to a long-term care facility must adapt to new environments, new people, and new systems that the facility implements. At this stage in life, this kind of drastic change can be more harmful than helpful.

Healthy Living
Healthy Living

Institutional care facilities like nursing homes often put large groups of people together to live in one location. On any given day, dozens of staff members and caregivers run in and out of these facilities. Being around so many new people in a relatively small living environment can be dangerous for a seniors' health and wellbeing. When you consider that thousands of seniors passed away in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, opting for in-home care is often a safer, healthier choice for seniors. Aging in place has been shown to improve seniors' quality of life, which helps boost physical health and also helps insulate them from viral and bacterial risks found in elderly living facilities.


For many seniors, the ability to live independently with assistance from a caregiver is a priceless option. With in-home care, seniors experience a higher level of independence and freedom - much more so than in other settings like an assisted living community. When a senior has the chance to age in place, they get to live life on their own terms, inside the house that they helped make into a home. More independence means more control over their personal lives, too, which leads to increased levels of fulfillment, happiness, and personal gratification. Over time, these positive feelings can manifest into a healthier, longer life.

Cost and Convenience
Cost and Convenience

More independence, a healthier life, and increased comfort are only a few benefits of aging in place. You have to take into consideration the role of cost and convenience. Simply put, it's usually easier to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, can be less expensive than long-term solutions, which can cost upwards of six figures per year. To make matters worse, many residential care facilities are reluctant to accept long-term care insurance and other types of payment assistance.

With Always Best Care's home care services, seniors and their families have a greater level of control over their care plans. In-home care in Perryville, MD gives seniors the chance to form a bond with a trusted caregiver and also receive unmatched care that is catered to their needs. In long-term care facilities, seniors and their loved ones have much less control over their care plan and have less of a say in who provides their care.

Empowers Seniors

Affordable Care Plans

In-home care is a valuable resource that empowers seniors to age in place on their own terms. However, a big concern for many families and their loved ones is how much in-home care costs. If you're worried that in-home care is too expensive, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is one of the most affordable senior care arrangements available.

Typically, hiring an Always Best Care in-home caregiver for a few hours a week is more affordable than sending your loved one to a long-term care facility. This is true even for seniors with more complex care needs.

At Always Best Care, we will work closely with you and your family to develop a Care Plan that not only meets your care needs, but your budget requirements, too. Once we discover the level of care that you or your senior need, we develop an in-home care plan that you can afford.

In addition to our flexible care options, families should also consider the following resources to help offset potential home care costs:

Veteran's Benefits
Veteran's Benefits

Aid and Attendance benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.

Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-Term Care Insurance

Many senior care services like in-home care are included in long-term care insurance options. Research different long-term care solutions to find a plan that provides coverage for senior care.

Private Insurance
Private Insurance

Home care can be included as part of a senior's private insurance plan. Read over your loved one's insurance policy carefully or speak with their insurance provider to determine if in-home care is covered.

Life Insurance
Life Insurance

Depending on the life insurance plan, you may be able to apply your policy toward long-term care. You may be able to use long-term-care coverage to help pay for in-home elderly care.

Respite Care Perryville, MD

During your Care Plan consultation with Always Best Care, your Care Coordinator will speak with you about in-home care costs and what options there may be to help meet your budget needs.

Compassionate Care. Trusted Caregivers

When you or your senior loved one needs assistance managing daily tasks at home, finding a qualified caregiver can be challenging. It takes a special kind of person to provide reliable care for your senior loved one. However, a caregiver's role involves more than meal preparation and medication reminders. Many seniors rely on their caregivers for companionship, too.

Our companion care services give seniors the chance to socialize in a safe environment and engage in activities at home. These important efforts boost morale and provide much-needed relief from repetitive daily routines. A one-on-one, engaging conversation can sharpen seniors' minds and give them something in which to be excited.

At Always Best Care, we only hire care providers that we would trust to care for our own loved ones. Our senior caregivers in Perryville,MD understand how important it is to listen and communicate with their seniors. A seemingly small interaction, like a short hug goodbye, can make a major difference in a senior's day. Instead of battling against feelings of isolation, seniors begin to look forward to seeing their caregiver each week.

Understanding the nuances of senior care is just one of the reasons why our care providers are so great at their job.

Unlike some senior care companies, our caregivers must undergo extensive training before they work for Always Best Care. In addition, our caregivers receive ongoing training throughout the year. This training ensures that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect. During this training, they will brush up on their communication skills, safety awareness, and symptom spotting. That way, your loved one receives the highest level of non-medical home care from day one.

 Caregivers Perryville, MD

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

The first step in getting quality in-home care starts with a personal consultation with an experienced Care Coordinator. This initial consultation is crucial for our team to learn more about you or your elderly loved one to discover the level of care required. Topics of this consultation typically include:

An assessment of your senior loved one


An in-depth discussion of the needs of your senior loved one to remain in their own home


Reviewing a detailed Care Plan that will meet your senior loved one's needs


Our caregivers are trained to spot changes that clients exhibit, like mental and physical decline. As your trusted senior care company, we will constantly assess and update your Care Plan to meet any new emotional, intellectual, physical, and emotional needs.

If you have never considered in-home care before, we understand that you and your family may have concerns about your Care Plan and its Care Coordinator. To help give you peace of mind, know that every team member and caregiver must undergo comprehensive training before being assigned to a Care Plan.

When you're ready, we encourage you to contact your local Always Best Care representative to set up a Care Consultation. Our Care Coordinators would be happy to meet with you in person to get to know you better, discuss your needs, and help put together a personalized Care Plan specific to your needs.

Great Wolf Lodge Perryville: 5 Things to Know Before You Go

[Note: This post was written by KFDC Contributor Emily Moise, a local writer and mom of three young children. She always has excellent recommendations for kids’ activities around the DC area. See some of them here, here, here, and here.]

In case you missed it, a Great Wolf Lodge opened this summer in Perryville, MD, less than two hours away from the DC metro area. The appeal of a sparkling new indoor water park and lodge – because we all know the wear and tear of kids – is a big draw. If Great Wolf has been on your radar, now’s a great time to check it off your kid bucket list.

Many bloggers can give you the ins and outs of Great Wolf, including this previous KidFriendly DC post, but there were a few main takeaways from my family’s visit this past month. Here are five things to know before you go…

1. Timing may be everything. We booked our August stay using an opening deal, however, summer was not ideal timing. Even on our weekday visit, the place was packed. If you’re crowd-phobic like me, try going on a random weekday during the school year. If the timing is right, take your child on their birthday (and add a birthday package).

2. Age matters. If your little ones need constant supervision in crowds or around water and they outnumber you, consider holding off. The water park is massive and not a place to “sittervise” (you’ll want to get in on the action anyways!). Expect to stay one-on-one with young children and to accompany confident, but young swimmers. Note that there are height restrictions for several water slides (42-48” requirements), as well as the indoor ropes course (48” requirement).

3. You’re not going for the food. We added the breakfast package, which ended up being unnecessary for my family. There is a Dunkin’ Donuts on-site which could have sufficed (bagels, breakfast sandwiches, COFFEE). We ate dinner at Barnwood, which offers reservations for up to 14 people. And we brought our own food for the rest. Rooms have mini-fridges, and coolers are allowed in the Lodge. No outside food or beverages are permitted in the water park.

4. After the water park, it’s the hotel lobby. The water park is the main attraction, MagiQuest is a must, and you’ll have to peel your kids out of the arcade… but there is something special about the free activities in the hotel lobby. The dance party was a highlight for us. Don’t miss the story time before bed and morning yoga if everyone can rally.

5. Less is more. If you’re local, a one night stay gives you two full days (read: plenty) of fun. Check-in is at 4pm, but guests can check in early to access the water park when it opens at 9am as well as other activities. Your room may or may not be ready early. Day passes are also available and more than feasible coming from the DC area.

WILLMINGTON, Del. – Great Wolf Lodge is set to open a massive 48-acre resort, it's largest yet, in Maryland later this year.

The chain of indoor waterparks and family fun centers that features everything from winding water slides, obstacle courses, interactive "quests" and more, prides itself on being a one-stop shop for a quick family getaway. It's not meant to replace a trip to the beaches or national parks, it's designed for the busy family who finds themselves with a free weekend and an itch to step outside their comfort zone.

But travelers from all over the country can still plan a trip to experience one of the largest resorts of its kind for themselves.

Great Wolf Lodge Maryland will be located in Perryville, about an hour's drive north of Baltimore..

The over $250 million project will be the biggest waterpark in the chain's history so far, taking up 48 acres of space with 128,000 square feet of waterparks (at a comfortable 84-degrees year-round), 57,000 square feet of family entertainment and a 700-room resort.

Plans have been in motion for this park for about two years. After being slightly delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the company broke ground on the site a little over a year ago and is slated to be complete in the upcoming months before being officially open for business on August 1.

What to expect: exclusive first looks

The waterpark will feature 22 water slides, including two brand new ones, that can be seen twisting from outside the confines of the building, with something to appeal to every age.

The new slides appeal to thrill-seekers, featuring 360-degree loops and steep drops through dark tunnels. But for the patron who prefers their feet on the ground, the park offers the "Otter Cave Waterworks", a multi-level play structure with six smaller, attached water slides and the signature Great Wolf Lodge tipping bucket that pours 1,000 gallons of water every four minutes.

An outdoor pool will also be featured in the Great Wolf Lodge with cabanas for those in need of some R&R.

In addition to the waterpark, there is an adventure park with even more activities for families to enjoy including bowling, ropes courses, mini golf, a mirror maze and an arcade.

Those familiar with Great Wolf Lodge already may remember the "Magiquest" interactive journey designed for families to partake in. Along with the improvements of the new waterpark come more complex storylines and "enchanted forest-esque" interior designs for guests to immerse themselves into.

Perryville's Great Wolf Lodge will feature a 700-room resort with suite options to suit parties up to 12 people.

Lastly, the all-in-one staycation destination will feature plenty of dining options for the whole family including a Dunkin Donuts, a buffet-style campfire restaurant with options ranging from hamburgers to Tex-Mex and an upscale dining restaurant.

Planning your trip

To book your stay, visit the Great Wolf Lodge website for its Maryland location. Overnight rates for rooms range from around $200-$400 per night, depending on availability and size of party. The park is typically busiest when school is out, so if you're looking to avoid crowds and high costs, squeezing in a mid-week trip may be best.

If you're looking for some money-saving tips, general manager Nadine Miracle and VP of Great Wolf's corporate communications Jason Lasecki recommend signing up for email alerts. In honor of the park's consistent 84-degree heating, flash sales for $84 nightly room rates are occasionally advertised to those on the email database.

The resort is also offering a discount on stays in the first few months following the grand opening.

Havre de Grace

Havre de Grace, Maryland, is a town just a 10-minute drive across the Susquehanna River from Perryville. The quaint and historic town is home to over 3,000 acres of parkland and outdoor areas for people to explore.

Concord Point Lighthouse

Just under 4 miles from the Great Wolf Lodge, the Concord Point Lighthouse is almost 2 centuries old and sits at the intersection between the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay. It's open only on weekends, but it's free to visit and offers educational tours and a chance to climb to the top.

The lighthouse is also adjacent to the Havre de Grace Promenade, a short boardwalk that overlooks the Susquehanna River.

COUNTDOWN TO GREAT WOLF LODGE OPENING:Where to eat in and around the water park lodge

Havre de Grace Decoy Museum

The decoy museum is full of intricately designed replicas of aquatic birds originally used for hunting. While this may not be the first activity that comes to mind when exploring a new area, there is plenty of historical significance behind the craft that is integral to the communities around the Chesapeake Bay, and this museum has earned the small town of Havre de Grace the title of "decoy capital of the world."

The museum is also close to greenways and parks that make up the town.

Plumpton Park Zoo

If Wiley the Wolf and the other Great Wolf Lodge mascots inspire you to interact with non-costumed animals, the Plumpton Park Zoo is just a 20-minute drive away at 1416 Telegraph Road in Rising Sun, Maryland.

The zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day during the summer, and tickets are around $20 for adults and $15 for kids. You can check out the different mammals, reptiles and birds, feed the giraffes or set up a guided tour for the family.

Chesapeake City

Just a 30-minute drive from the Great Wolf Lodge, Chesapeake City is a regional favorite for scenic events and quick getaways. Just along the waterfront, the quaint town has been nationally recognized for its historic district, shopping and galleries. There are a few restaurants and bars along the water and a number of walking trails in the surrounding area.

The town also holds various events and movie viewings around the city as well as ferry rides connecting the north and south sides of the town. After a long weekend spent in water slides and adventure parks, a peaceful trip to Chesapeake City's shops and restaurants may be the perfect way to cap off a family trip.

PERRYVILLE, Md. — At 128,000 square feet, Great Wolf Lodge Maryland will be the largest waterpark of its kind with a pair of body slides unlike any of the resort’s others in the country.

“Forest Flume takes a simulation of you going down a ski slope kind of with those long banking curves ending in a water run out,” said General Manager Nadine Miracle, “and High Paw Holler is the yellow slide. Now, that’s really for our thrill seekers. So High Paw Holler, you’re going to be going through back-to-back turns into a 360-degree loop so it’s very much adventurous.”

Not to mention the park’s adventure park, its other 20 water slides and, of course, its signature thousand-gallon tipping bucket.

The lodge is expected to bring in about a half million visitors each year and will produce some $100 million in sales.

“We expect guests from Baltimore, Wilmington, Philadelphia, New York, New Jersey and even Washington, D.C. to be our primary guests to stay here,” said Regional Vice President Brad Weissman.

The lodge also will employ at least 850 seasonal and fulltime positions with an eye towards hiring locally.

“We are working closely with the schools in the area, including Perryville High School, as well as the community colleges in both Cecil County and Harford County so a lot of opportunity here,” added Miracle.

Originally scheduled to open in August, the lodge now is opening on July 15th and is offering discounted reservations through the end of the year.
