“Fifteen years ago, I received a call that none of us ever wants to receive. My father, who had been thriving and healthy, received news that he had a tumor in his brain and needed immediate care. He lived in a resort area, far from the world-class health care we take for granted in Baltimore. By 4:00 p.m. that afternoon, he and my mom were living in our home.
That was my first experience with home care. My brothers and I found that the process of bringing qualified, experienced, compassionate and licensed caregivers into our homes was not as seamless as it ought to be.
Our name – Avila Home Care – is inspired by the prayer of Teresa of Avila, because my experiences have taught me that being invited into your home to care for you or your loved one is a sacred trust. Every member of our Caregiving Community is someone you would be delighted to have in your home. Our team genuinely cares and is committed to providing the extraordinary care your loved one deserves. Our goal is to provide everything you need to thrive in the home you love!”
~ Danny O’Brien, Avila Home Care Founder and CEO
“Christ has no body now but ours,
No hands, no feet on earth but ours,
Ours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on this world.
Ours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Ours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
“Ours are the hands, ours are the feet,
Ours are the eyes. We are his body.”
~ Prayer of Teresa of Avila
