About Us

Our Mission

To raise the quality of life for older adults and their families by enabling them to safely maintain their health, well-being, independence, and participation in the community by delivering high-quality services and products at affordable prices.


This all started because of our own needs. We have parents that are aging from afar and needed services, and parents wanting to downsize and move in with a sibling. Also, personally, we realize our own health and safety needs as we ourselves are aging.

Our goal is to provide high-quality fall prevention services and NEXT DAY delivery of Durable Medical Equipment to mature adults throughout Montgomery, Howard and Frederick County.

Making even small improvements can make a huge difference in the quality of life of our clients and their families. With a safer home environment, most falls can be prevented and you can enjoy greater mobility and health well into your later years. In addition, a safer home makes it easier for your friends and family to visit for improved social and emotional well-being.

Let's compare costs:

Medical costs of a fractured hip can easily run over $36,000 and this doesn't even count the lost days of work for your family and caregivers. Preventing a fall could mean installing Grab Bars for $350.00 and non-skid rug pads for $300.00. Knowing your home is as safe as it can be is priceless!!

Our Leaders

All of the leaders at Rest Assured come with a history in the medical field dealing with seniors and the disabled community.

Robert Roth
Robert Roth - CEO

Bob is an honorably discharged veteran and was a registered nurse for almost 10 years until he felt the need to get into medical sales. He became one of the highest sales producers of medical equipment in the Midwest.

He started his own medical equipment company in 1995, Advanced Therapeutics, specializing in the Hospice care field. Last year he sold the company to start another venture dealing with the growing population of those wanting to age in place as he strongly believes that most seniors want to stay in their homes as long as it is safe for them to do so..

Brad Martin
Brad Martin - Director of Operations

Brad is a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) and has worked many years in the area of Non-Emergency Medical transportation. His family started a very successful wheelchair and ambulance service in 2000, and it is still in operation to this day.

Brad became CAPS certified as he realized the difficulty that his company’s staff had in getting their clients in and out of their home to go to medical appointments.

Home Assessments

“There’s no place like home.” Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz” perfectly captures the American love affair with the home. Especially a "SAFE" home.

There are so many considerations to make when setting up a safe, comfortable home for your parent, senior-aged family member, or older friend. And as a Certified Aging in Place Specialist and an Age Safe America Advisor, we have the training to make your home safe again.

There are a number of very compelling reasons for seniors to continue living in their homes:

  • They retain the independence that gives them continued life satisfaction and enjoyment.
  • They retain more of their hard-earned resources.
  • They live more active lives.
  • They enjoy lower-cost home healthcare and the improved care outcomes that accompany these benefits.

The problem is, while living at home offers many advantages, it can simply be risky for mature adults. When a loved one lives alone, especially in an older home, adult children often worry about their safety. A fall on the stairs or in the bathroom may leave the senior with no way to call for help. A fire that occurs in the kitchen when your family member is preparing dinner can have dangerous consequences also. These are legitimate concerns for families with an older loved one. Mature adults are at higher risk for both falls and injuries.

To help address these concerns and others, we have a 240 item Home Safety Checklist that we use to identify potential trouble spots in and around your loved one’s home or yours too. We then make suggestions for you to make or we can do them for you so there's one less thing on your to-do list. We will come and go through each room in your home, starting outside and going room by room, we will discuss things that can be done to make your home a safer one for you or your loved ones to live in.

The biggest home safety threat mature adults face today is falling. And the place where most falls occur is in the bathroom. Falls for mature adults can cause moderate to very severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head traumas, and can increase the risk of early death. The National Council on Aging reported that each year, one in every three adults age 65 and older falls. Among adults aged 65 or older, falls are the leading cause of injury or death, according to the CDC. In 2016, over 36,000 older adults died from unintentional fall injuries, and over 3 million nonfatal fall injuries among older adults were treated in emergency departments and more than 800,000 of these patients were hospitalized. And, probably most telling, 54 percent of all elderly fall-related deaths occur in the home, according to the National Safety Council.

Still, despite those risks, we all want to, and should, live at home. The numbers are massive. According to data released this year by the Census Bureau, there were 51 million people age 65 and older on April 1, 2018. And with the 77 million-person-strong Baby Boom well into retirement, that number will escalate. In fact, the AARP reports that by 2030 one in every five Americans will be age 65 or older. And despite the safety concerns, they simply want to live at home. And they should, it's where they are the happiest and feel the most in control.

Home Assessment Fee: $225

Home Maintenance

The Home Care Maintenance Plan is designed to completely maintain a home from top-to-bottom, inside-and-out. It covers all home maintenance which is defined as the observation, reporting, adjusting, cleaning, lubricating, tightening and general servicing that is needed to keep functional home items operating according to their intended use.

Every maintenance plan begins with a comprehensive inspection to categorize the type of fixtures you have so that Rest Assured will have a knowledge database of all the types of fixtures, sizes of filters, and appliances that are in your home. There is a one time $100.00 fee for this initial assessment. This allows our technician to bring with them the correct parts at the time of the monthly visits. It saves time for the homeowner and gives the technician more time to maintain your home.

Each plan includes general maintenance such as replacing heating filters, removing leaves from gutters once a year, tightening and adjusting faucets and shower heads, small repairs to walls and floors and more. We take a thorough look at the rest of your home every quarter so we can head off any major repairs.

Major repairs or remodels are scheduled and quoted and performed separately by thoroughly vetted partners. See below for a complete list of what is included in our visits. 1.5 hours of additional labor per month is included to be used for whatever the homeowner wants to be done as well. We also include up to $30.00 in parts per month.

Give us a call, or contact us through our website and we’d be happy to send you more information describing exactly what is covered by the Home Care Maintenance Program.

Our Help Can Take Away Your Fear

The last thing you need is fear right?

Sometimes family members become frustrated if they face resistance from their elderly relatives when they suggest having help or considering another place to move. In many cases, this resistance comes from fears that seniors have while they face the challenges of staying active and independent as they age. Understanding and acknowledging these fears can help to facilitate a reasonable and productive conversation between an adult child and an aging parent. Some of the top fears of the elderly are:

  • Losing independance
  • Declining health
  • Running out of money
  • Not being able to drive

Start the conversation with your loved one in a casual way, opening them up to sharing their needs and their desires regarding their future. Emphasize your desire to help your loved one stay independent, ask questions and listen. It is important to include the elderly person in the decision-making process, rather than dictate a decision to them. Providing some needed equipment or changes to thier living space is often all that is needed to remove much of the fear. As they begin to regain thier independance, thier confidence is restored, resulting in less fear.
