Our Story

“Ten 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, founder

“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

Our dedication to our values is what sets us apart

Extraordinary Care for the whole person

Kindness that goes the extra mile

Joyful teamwork

Robust Integrity

Even though we might be hired to perform a task, we consider it a privilege to be invited into a home and a family’s life. We’re committed to serving the whole person – to nurturing one another’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being.

Every day is an opportunity to make a difference. We are not satisfied with doing the minimum or just getting by. We serve sacrificially, going the extra mile to affirm one another’s human dignity and to demonstrate our genuine love.

Each member of our team is a valued part of our Community of Caregivers and each deserves love and respect. We strive to communicate well and resolve conflicts in a healthy manner. We recognize outstanding performance and hold one another accountable when we fall short.

We do the right thing, period. We have zero tolerance for treating you, your family or one another with disrespect or unkindness. We do not leverage our client relationships for our own advantage. We maintain the highest standards of ethics and integrity in everything we do.

Our strength is in our people

The key to home care is the day-to-day interaction between caregiver and client. We hire the best and do everything possible to retain them. We screen potential staff members thoroughly and train them extensively so that you can have full confidence that the caregiver who serves your family is the best person you could possibly find.
