Home-Based Care for Seniors

Senior Care at Home

Given the option, many older adults would prefer to remain independent, living in their own homes, even if they have serious health problems.  We understand that staying in a familiar and secure environment can greatly improve the quality of your life.

Senior care at home | Holy Cross HospitalTo help make it possible for you or your loved one to remain at home, we offer senior in-home care programs through Holy Cross Home Care and Hospice, a member of Trinity Home Health Services affiliated with Holy Cross Hospital. 

Our comprehensive agency for home care is Maryland-state licensed, Medicare-certified and CHAP-accredited, which means that our care meets or exceeds the highest standards for quality.

  • Our In-Home Medical Services offers a wide range of senior health services, including basic and advanced home care.  These include geriatric nursing care, our medical house calls program, and emotional and social support for seniors with chronic illnesses, as well as for those recovering from an acute health problem or from surgery.
