Regent Healthcare Acquires Loving Touch Home Care, LLC
With acquisition, Central Maryland’s largest non-franchised home care agency establishes presence on Maryland’s Eastern Shore
Odenton, MD – Regent Healthcare, the largest, non-franchised Home Care Agency in Central Maryland, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Loving Touch Home Care, LLC, based in Chestertown, MD. Under the terms of the agreement, Loving Touch will be absorbed by Regent Healthcare, who will employ all former Loving Touch employees, including office staff and caregivers, and assume care for nearly all former Loving Touch clients.
Loving Touch has served Chestertown and the surrounding areas on Maryland’s Eastern Shore since 2013, specializing in companion, personal and skilled nursing care along with Alzheimer’s and dementia care. The Kent County Chamber of Commerce recognized Loving Touch as “New Business of the Year” in 2016, citing the county’s aging population and high-demand for in-home health care services.
Founded in 2008 and accredited by The Joint Commission, Regent Healthcare provides all levels of in-home companion, personal and skilled nursing care throughout Central Maryland, Southern Maryland, and Maryland’s Eastern Shore. With this acquisition, Regent will establish a local presence in Chestertown by taking over the office space previously leased by Loving Touch.
“We are honored to welcome Loving Touch’s committed and caring staff to our growing Regent family, and we look forward to providing its clients with the same high-quality and compassionate care they are used to,” said Felton Magee, President & CEO of Regent Healthcare. “Regent is committed to establishing a local presence in the communities we serve, and we are excited to now have a location in Chestertown. With this acquisition, we are now positioned to meet the rising need for in-home personal, companion and skilled nursing care on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, as well as create new job opportunities in the region.”
“Our entire team has shown unparalleled dedication to helping our neighbors in need,” said Barbara Reed, MEd, B.S.N., R.N., former owner of Loving Touch Home Care. “In joining Regent, we are still ‘Neighbors Helping Neighbors,’ but our neighborhood just got bigger. I welcome the additional resources and opportunities this change brings to our community.”
