Keswick’s Healthy at Home Program Featured in The Daily Record

On June 22, 2015,  Keswick’s CEO Carmel Roques was featured in the Maryland Daily Record’s article “Health Care Nonprofits Launch Program for Seniors to Stay Healthy and at Home”.  This program allows Keswick to expand its efforts and help seniors stay in their homes as long as possible. A team of community health workers stay in close touch with patients to make sure they have what they need once they leave a facility. This program is further bolstered by its partnership with Action in Maturity (AIM) and Goven’s Ecumenical Development Corporation (GEDCO).
