Q: Specialty Care Services was recently awarded a five-year contract by the Maryland Department of Human Services to provide home care to qualified individuals. What does this mean for your company?

A: We are honored to have been selected after a lengthy and highly-competitive bid process and excited to broaden our reach. Receiving this contract lays the foundation for Specialty Care Services to expand home care services and partner with the Maryland Department of Human Services to meet the growing demand for in-home aide services. Under our contract, in-home aide services are available to qualified Maryland residents ages 18 and older who have functional disabilities and need assistance with such tasks as personal care, chores, meal preparation and other day-to-day activities, enabling them to continue at home safely and independently. Vulnerable adults with no willing or capable caregiver available, those at risk for institutional placement and those at risk of abuse or neglect also qualify for our services. 

Q: Why choose Specialty Care Services?

A: Our customer service is second to none. I don’t know that any other company can meet the immediate needs of their clients as swiftly and seamlessly as we can. A care coordinator is always available to take your call and offer expert guidance to ensure you or your loved one gets the proper care. Regardless of the level of care required, all care plans are customized to meet each client’s unique needs. Often, you only get one shot at matching a client with the right caregiver. We ask a lot of personality-related questions at the very onset to pave the way for prosperous caregiver-client relationships. 

Specialty Care Services is committed to meeting the care needs of Washington Metropolitan area seniors in their location of choice — private residence, assisted living facility, nursing home or rehabilitation center — at the best value. All long-term care insurance plans are accepted, and clients are offered case management at no additional cost.
