What our clients say about us…
In 1997, John Degen, and his mother, a registered nurse, founded Chesapeake Caregivers as an assisted living facility. Early on they discovered a growing need and demand for in-home caregiving services for people who wanted the option to continue living safely and happily in the comfort of their own homes. Since then we have served hundred of families focusing on each individual and their unique needs as they receive compassionate care in their preferred setting.
John’s wife, Susan, our managing partner/VP of Operations, left her career in finance to support her husband several years ago. She saw the impact
Chesapeake Caregivers was making in the senior community and wanted to be a significant part of the day-to-day operations.
Throughout our company’s growth, the roots of compassion and kindness apply to everything we do because we know that the decision to have someone new enter a loved one’s home is never to be taken lightly. It’s not only about the tasks to be done while in their home but also how to have a meaningful relationship with another person who needs help as they maintain some independence. We focus on the importance of human interactions between our trained caregivers and every client, and with this approach, both our caregivers and your loved one feel a purpose to their day together.
We assist those who require help with the activities of daily living in the comfort of their own home. Home care allows individuals to stay safe and maintain their independence.
However, this choice does not mean that you are on your own. Our team of certified nursing assistants is available to help you remain independent.Get Brochure
What our clients say about us…
”Working with Susan & Sam to find the right care for my mother has been made easy by their kind and personalized attention. They are easy to communicate with and very responsive. I love how they don’t panic when a problem arises. They simply share the information and take care of it. They bring no drama-just professionalism. The caregivers they have provided all have different personalities but all have been qualified, kind and reliable. We have used this agency for about 10 months now for both in home and supplemental coverage in an Assisted Living situation. In both cases, the care has been very good! If you want personal service from caring people, look no further!D Brady

Long Term Care Insurance:

We accept all long-term care insurance (LTC) and have decades of experience working with long-term care insurance companies Chesapeake Caregivers works with many insurance companies including MetLife, Genworth, CNA, among many others and are able to assist you through the process of initiating and maintaining long-term care insurance benefits.
