The WeCare Story
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Geraldine Diggs began her career in caregiving in the late 1970s. Frustrated by the service she encountered in healthcare institutions, Geraldine became determined to raise the standard for quality for caregiving. On June 8, 1995, she founded WeCare. At first, the business was operated from the basement of her home, run by a small group of family and friends who believed in her vision for heart-centered home care for the elderly.
Over the last 24 years, WeCare has become well respected and highly regarded within the community, earning a reputation for being the agency that provides compassionate care of the highest quality. It is also the “go-to” agency for many case managers, hospital social workers, financial advisors, physicians, and rehabilitation and hospice facilities. Today, WeCare has served more than 3,200 clients and their families. Additionally, we have helped mentor and educate an upwards of 1,200 caregivers, who, armed with the knowledge and experience they obtained at WeCare, were able to go on to build careers, travel, and improve their families’ lives.
WeCare is headquartered in Pikesville, MD and is equipped with office staff members in addition to a multitude of caregivers on our registry, some of whom were founding members of the WeCare family.
