Annandale 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 Annandale:

Shepherd’s Center of Annandale Springfield

Address: 7610 Newcastle Drive, Annandale, VA  22003
Phone; (703) 941-1419

 Sponsored by a number of area congregations and community groups, the Shepherd’s Center is a non-profit, interfaith organization that provides services for local seniors aged 50 and older to help them continue to live independently in their own homes and maintain a sense of involvement in the community. Services include a volunteer transportation service to take seniors to medical appointments, free of charge, as well as the Handy Helpers volunteer home repair program. The center also hosts bi-monthly luncheons featuring speakers and entertainment, and offers day trips and an educational lecture series.

Home Repair for the Elderly Program

Address: 3700 Pender Drive, Suite 300, Fairfax, Virginia 22030-6039 
Phone: (703) 246-5179

Developed by the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority, the Home Repair for the Elderly Program (HREP) is designed to assist residents of Fairfax county aged 62 and older living on a low to moderate income with minor home repairs. Services include interior and exterior painting, window and door repair, plumbing and electrical work, as well as accessibility modifications. The program is completely free of charge, and provides eligible seniors with a crew to complete one week’s labor and covers the cost of materials up to $500.

Meals on Wheels

Address: 12011 Government Center Parkway, Suite 708, Fairfax, VA 22035
Phone: (703) 324-5409

The Meals on Wheels (MOW) program is available to provide meals for adults aged 60 and older in Fairfax County who are unable to shop for groceries or prepare their own meals at home. The service includes a delivery of two daily meals: a hot lunch and a cold meal with a sandwich. Meals are prepared in local nursing homes, hospitals or by the Fairfax County Public School System, and are delivered by community volunteers Monday through Friday, with weekend services available in some areas. The service is free of charge, though participants do have the opportunity to contribute to the cost of the service if they are able.

Tax Relief Program

Address: 12000 Government Center Parkway, Suite 223, Fairfax, VA 22035
Phone: (703) 222-8234

 To lessen the financial burden that seniors face, the Department of Tax Administration (DTA) offers a tax relief program for residents of Fairfax County aged 65 and older, or who are disabled. The program offers tax exemptions on real estate, personal property, household vehicle and rent, making it easier for seniors to age in place.

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 – often times 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.
