Washington suburb Bethesda has ranked as one of Maryland’s best places to live and is a top destination for active retirement. Bethesda is home to the venerated Strathmore and a vibrant arts district, hundreds of shopping venues and dozens of golf courses awaiting seniors on the move. In this affluent Age-Friendly Community, one out of four of its 63,195 residents are aged 60 or older. Older residents here are minutes away from renowned medical care facilities Suburban Hospital – Johns Hopkins Medicine and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

In Bethesda, seniors have plentiful high-quality home health care providers to choose from. According to the Genworth Financial 2020 Cost of Care Survey, home care costs an average of $4,601 per month and home health care costs an average of $4,767 per month. These prices exceed the national averages of $4,481 for homemaker services and $4,576 for in-home health services.

Note: Home care cost data was not available for Bethesda, so data for the closest city, Washington Area, DC, was used. 

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Bethesda area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Bethesda Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Bethesda:

Iona Senior Services

Iona Senior Services is a leading aging organization in the Washington, DC, area. It coordinates a wide spectrum of programs for seniors in the community, including care management, adult day care, mental health therapy and subsidized case management services. Iona hosts citywide programs for individuals and families living with dementia as well. Seniors can also find information on food programs in addition to legal assistance, transportation, veterans’ aid and LGBTQ support.

Senior Connection

The Pantry Fillers Program offers low-income clients the options of escorted trips and pick-up services for groceries.

Aging and Disability Resource Unit

Phone Number: (240) 777-3000

Montgomery County’s Aging and Disability Resource Unit informs residents about home and community-based services for elderly residents 60 and older and their caregivers.

The staff also points callers to caregiver support, home modifications, dementia support and financial and legal assistance.

The Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP) and the Electric Universal Service Program (EUSP) help income-eligible customers with their heating and electricity bills. The MEAP lets households set up an even monthly payment plan to prevent disconnection, and it offers furnace replacements on a limited basis. The EUSP can assist with past due utility bills, paying the electric company directly. Customers who qualify for both programs can receive benefits from each.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
