For most families, the need for in-home care is often sudden and unplanned. An unexpected hospitalization, a fall, cognitive decline, mobility challenges, and age-related loss of independence or health conditions often leave families overwhelmed. Trying to arrange for high-quality and reliable care can be challenging and stressful. At Assisting Hands of Baltimore, MD, we understand you want to provide your loved one with high-quality consistent care. And, even more importantly, you want to make sure your elderly relative is treated with the love, dignity, compassion, and respect he or she deserves. We get it, we have been there too.

At Assisting Hands, our mission is to offer our clients the very finest personalized non-medical care, allowing them to live safely and comfortably in their own homes. Sometimes life’s natural events-aging, illness, or disability can make living independently at home more difficult.
Who We Are
A Home Care Partner You Can Trust
Hi, my name is Al Hernandez, and as a first responder who has served my community for 23 years, I have witnessed firsthand the various challenges aging adults face when they are unable to care for themselves. Over the years I have shared these experiences with my wife Shannon, and together we have recognized the importance of high-quality reliable in-home care to those who need it most—the seniors in our community. I will never forget the time I met an elderly couple who had experienced multiple falls in their home but were not receiving the care they needed from their adult children. This story is just one of many, and so we at Assisting Hands Home Care of Baltimore have made it our primary goal to provide high-quality, compassionate in-home care to seniors just like your loved one.
Reliable, Committed, & Compassionate Caregivers
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we’re passionate about providing only the best in-home care possible. Not only are our caregivers highly trained and certified, but they are also caring and compassionate individuals with big hearts. This is important because a caregiver should be more than just someone who shows up to watch your loved one a few times a week or someone who stays over a few nights a month while your loved one is sleeping. We value the personal experience of home care and the importance of having a consistent caregiver. The ideal caregiver for your aging relative is someone who will also become a trusted companion. To ensure this amazing relationship and bond, we’ll match a caregiver with your loved one based on his or her individual care needs, personal interests, things he or she enjoys, personality traits, and much more. It’s not enough for the caregivers at Assisting Hands to simply have experience in caring for aging adults. Our caregivers also have loving hearts and truly care about the seniors we match them with. We’d trust each and every one of them with caring for our own parents, so you can feel confident your loved one is in good hands.
