Smaller Size – Better Care


That is the number of residents who live at Angel’s Touch. Caring for this smaller number makes all the difference in the quality of life for your loved parent, spouse, or family member. Angel’s Touch is home. Residents are respected. They form bonds of friendship with other residents and caregivers. Residents are part of a family that gardens, cooks, and travels together. We have parties, visit museums, and watch ballgames together.


Four To One

This is our ratio of residents to caregivers. Not one to ten like large facilities. This ratio translates into outstanding care for your loved one. We take the time to make each resident feel important

Familiar Faces

At Angel’s Touch, our residents have been awakening to familiar faces for more than 27 years. We know how each resident likes his or her eggs, like to dress, and how they prefer to spend their time. Residents make choices as they live each day their way. Moreover, our dedicated caregivers notice changes. We can quickly inform family members, not only during challenging times but also when their family member is doing well.


From independent living to Alzheimer’s/ memory care, we deliver quality care by dedicated and skilled staff members. Our staff member Angel’s Touch encourages residents and short-stay guests to enjoy life to the fullest through a variety of activities that spark their cognitive, physical and spiritual needs. We welcome short stays arranged for a couple of days to months.

Angel’s Touch caregivers, managers, and skilled nursing in coordination with hospice care positively engage residents in wellness activities and offers support to both residents and families.

It is a toss-up for the resident’s favorites: delightful flower and vegetable gardens, our adorable house pets, or the outside walking paths.

Health & Wellness

As a vital component of our care, we offer on-site physician visits, nursing services, home health resources and hospice services as a part of our team approach to wellness. Residents who require physical or occupational therapy can arrange to receive those services in the comfort of home at Angel’s Touch. We also have a visiting podiatrist and hair stylist who is available for appointments once a week.

Activities & Outings

Activities are tailored to the needs and interests of our residents.  Activities are designed to spark cognitive, physical, and spiritual areas to make life meaningful. Caretakers help your loved one with learning about a new website, enjoying chair exercise or singing along with a visiting church group.  All given with an easy smile, kind words and/or the physical assistance each may need to feel successful.

Safe & Personally Furnished Rooms

Angel’s Touch strives to integrate safety with the warmth of home. Residents are engaged in choosing the furnishings for their rooms. They bring photos, special mementos, and even special pieces of furniture to make the room their home. Furnishings throughout the house are arranged to encourage residents to move as independently and safely as possible.

Great Food

Our centrally located and open kitchen is the heart of the home. Residents can smell the aromas of delicious well balanced home cooked meals. They can help snap beans or cook with fresh tomatoes and herbs from the garden. Residents who have a favorite family recipe, can help prepare that dish for a special meal. Each resident can also look forward to having their favorite cake as they receive birthday wishes!

Transportation Services

Our transportation services in and around Columbia, Ellicott City and Sykesville allow residents to keep their independence and autonomy by getting to doctor’s appointments and errands without worry. Living life to the fullest is being a part of the community and residents are encouraged to be active as they live each day.

Pet Programs

The resident pet lovers favorite is the Labradoodle puppies visit.  Family pets also enjoy making residents happy, while they a treat, a petting session or even a short cuddle.
