- Escorting: Transportation to and from appointments and other activities, and domestic or international travel to accompany people who come to Johns Hopkins for care
- Help with the activities of daily living: Bathing, dressing, eating, grooming and hygiene, light housekeeping, meal preparation, toileting and continence, transferring and walking
- Private, skilled nursing care: Infusion nursing, wound and ostomy care, feeding tube management and dressing changes

Although insurance does not cover our personal care services, our program may be cost effective over the long term by delaying the need to move to assisted living.
Our home care teams provide personal care and skilled nursing services for people who come from overseas to receive care at Johns Hopkins. Learn more about our international care program, including CNA and skilled nursing services.
Memory care focuses on teaching you how to help people who have memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. Your loved one doesn’t need to have a dementia diagnosis to qualify for our services. We provide assistance for anyone who’s experiencing memory loss that disrupts their daily life.

Personal Care Services from Johns Hopkins Care at Home: What to Expect
Your loved one can live at home safer and longer with our personal care services. We work to improve quality of life for your whole family. When you work with us, you can expect:
- Initial in-home assessment: Your first step is to contact us to schedule a time to meet with you and your loved one in your home. One of our registered nurses and our certified nursing assistant (CNA) manager come to conduct a nursing assessment and an in-home safety check.
- Personalized care plan: After our visit, we work closely with you to decide which of our services best meet your needs and those of your loved one. We work within your budget to customize a care plan that includes the services and number of hours you need.
- Thoughtful caregiver matching: When we come to your home, we spend time learning about your loved one, their interests and their preferences. We then match your loved one with a trained, experienced CNA caregiver based on those personal factors.
- Adjustments to the care plan: One of our registered nurses reviews your loved one’s care plan with you every 90 days or more often, if needed. We help ensure that your family receives the care you need, when you need it, by adjusting the plan to meet your evolving needs.
