Welcome!

HomePorts is a non-profit membership organization helping residents stay in their own home as they grow older. HomePorts has been incorporated by the State of  Maryland and began operation in October 2008.

The geographic area covered is the greater Kent County, Maryland area, which includes Chestertown, the Kingstown/Chester Harbor area and all other towns and villages in Kent County.

Remaining in one’s own home while growing old often requires major adjustments and outside assistance, HomePorts, Inc., is in operation to facilitate “aging in place”, promoting safe and healthy aging with peace of mind for members and their families.

HomePorts to Present
Free Presentation on
Fall Prevention and Balance
Wednesday, September 24 at 10:00 a.m.
Chestertown Town Hall Building

 Are you afraid of falling and not being able to get up without assistance? Do you worry about not being able to assist someone else who falls? Do you know safe procedures for moving or helping someone else move from a bed to a chair?

Brooke Maier, a physical therapist with 15 years experience and a member of the staff of Chester River Home Care (part of the University of Maryland Medical Center System), will be presenting a program to help with these concerns. She has trained physical therapists, done home evaluations for local rehabilitation centers and worked with planning prior to discharge of patients.

The program will provide information about body mechanics, safe transfers from one place to another, creating a safe environment, as well as things to do to help strengthen oneself and prevent falls.

The presentation will be offered by HomePorts on Wednesday, September 24 at 10:00 a.m. at the Chestertown Town Hall Building at 118 N. Cross Street on the 2nd floor. The program is free for seniors and their families.

Please contact HomePorts’ Executive Director, Karen Wright at
443-480-0940 or email her at karen@homeports.org if you plan to attend.
