How does In-home Senior Care in Port Deposit, 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 Port Deposit, 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 Port Deposit, 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:

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 Port Deposit,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.

PORT DEPOSIT, Md. — Raising the flag over the site of the Bainbridge Naval Training Center in Port Deposit has been 46 years in the making.

In 1976, the flag came down on the facility, which had turned out a quarter of a million recruits for the World War II.

Ramona Bunn traveled from her home in Kentucky to join the women’s reserve unit.

“I probably would have made it a career, but then I married an Army guy from the proving ground,” said Bunn.

Now, the center is being reactivated as the Bainbridge Logistics Center with warehouses planned on more than 400 acres of the 1100-acre site with the potential to create as many as 2,000 jobs.

Located just a few miles from Interstate 95, this project follows others that are boosting the local job market.

“From the continued success of Principio Business Park, which is home to major distribution facilities including General Electric and Restoration Hardware and Amazon,” noted Gov. Larry Hogan who joined in the ceremony on Thursday.

This project, though, had to clear a hurdle few others have once contamination turned up on the site.

“Large particulate of asbestos is a big part of it so that’s just something they had to check and make sure there weren’t more and what the remediation would look like,” said Cecil County Executive Danielle Hornberger.

Now, it’s clear sailing, and Ramona Bunn says she’s hoping the site’s makeover may provide new careers where she left her navy one behind decades ago.

“My grandkids are in Florida now, but that’s a big opening for them, and they love Maryland,” said Bunn.

Former Bainbridge Naval Training Center to be redeveloped

The former Bainbridge Naval Training Center at Port Deposit will be developed for up to 3.7 million square feet of logistics and distribution space across 440 acres, it was announced Friday.The site is being developed through a joint venture partnership between MRP Industrial, a Baltimore-based commercial real estate and investment company, and Hillwood Development Company LLC, a real estate development and investment group in Dallas.

The former Bainbridge Naval Training Center at Port Deposit will be developed for up to 3.7 million square feet of logistics and distribution space across 440 acres, it was announced Friday.

The site is being developed through a joint venture partnership between MRP Industrial, a Baltimore-based commercial real estate and investment company, and Hillwood Development Company LLC, a real estate development and investment group in Dallas. At full build-out, upward of 2,000 new jobs could be supported at the site, depending on the specific requirements of end-users.

The initial phase of the project includes the private investment in more than $30 million of infrastructure improvements which will be dedicated to Cecil County and the town of Port Deposit upon completion in the fall.

Public improvements include the expansion of both water and sanitary services engineered to support both Bainbridge and the surrounding community. Park infrastructure also includes the construction of approximately three miles of public roads to connect the park to the three state highways surrounding the perimeter of the formal Naval Training Base.

In partnership with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the development team has also dedicated 96 acres into a permanent Forrest Conservation easement further enhancing the park like setting throughout the future logistics campus.

Later this spring, the site will be mass graded to pad ready condition and speculative construction will commence on the first two of four planned buildings on the site – totaling just over 1 million square feet and 605,280 square feet respectively. These two single-story speculative Class “A” warehouse logistics buildings are projected to deliver in the first quarter of 2023.

Each building is designed to achieve LEED Certification with LED lighting, white reflective roofs, and other energy saving features. Both sites feature deep truck courts to support the movement of large tractor trailers and segregated parking fields for employee and visitor parking. The large, open space floorplates are suitable for a range of light manufacturing, warehouse, logistics and last-mile operations and can accommodate single and multi-tenant uses.

Companies that lease space at Bainbridge Logistics Center can take advantage of a set of incentives, including the Cecil County Enterprise Zone property and income tax credits, State Sales and Use Tax Exemption for construction materials, warehousing and manufacturing equipment and the Foreign Trade Zone.

Bohler Engineering and G.W Stephens & Associates partnered as the project’s civil engineer. MacGregor Associates will serve as the project Architect. The Conlan Company has been selected as the General Contractor supported by site contractor DXI Construction.

According to CBRE’s First Quarter 2022 industrial market report, robust leasing activity in 2021 has produced a 5.1% vacancy rate in the Harford/Cecil County submarket which includes approximately 35.2 million square feet of space. In the larger Baltimore North I-95 Corridor, an area encompassing the southeast side of Baltimore, east Baltimore County and all of Harford and Cecil counties, more than 11 million square feet of industrial space was leased last year and rents for Class “A” space rose by 25.5%.

Changes in consumer shopping habits fueled by the pandemic resulted in U.S. ecommerce sales eclipsing the $1 trillion mark, which marks an all-time high, a trend that had been edging up over the past five years, but which accelerated dramatically over the past 18 months. Real estate experts now believe that shopping patterns have permanently changed, and according to information released by the US Census Bureau, more than 13% of all retail purchases now come via digital orders.

Over the next five years, nearly 1.5 billion square feet of logistics space will be added to the worldwide inventory of space in response to the surge in e-commerce, according to CBRE.
