Arlington is a historic southern suburb of Washington, D.C., and site of the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery. Over 3 million people visit Arlington to pay their respects at the cemetery each year, where over 400,000 veterans have been laid to rest since the Civil War. Seniors make up nearly 10% of Arlington’s 207,000 people, and many of them enjoy visiting the historic sites that dot the area close to the national monument, such as the home of General Robert E. Lee and Fort Ethan Allen, which was once a Civil War fortification but now contains a soccer park.

Seniors in Arlington can expect to pay an average of $3,670 per month for homemaker services and $3,861 for help from a home health aide, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. Across the nation, seniors pay an average monthly cost of $4,004 for homemaker help and $4,195 for a visiting home health aide.

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Arlington 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.

Arlington 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 Arlington:

Green Home Choice

Address: 2100 Clarendon Blvd Suite 1000, Richmond, VA
Phone: (703) 228-4792

Green Home Choice is an Arlington County program that enlists local builders to upgrade and install new solar and other green tech in the homes of seniors who pass income restrictions and other guidelines. Installation is offered at a discount or free for qualifying seniors.

Trash Pick-Up

Address: 4300 S 29th St., Richmond, VA
Phone: (703) 228-6570

Seniors who need help getting their trash to the curb for the normal pickup can request assistance from Arlington County through the Trash Pick-Up program. This service is available at no cost. Seniors may have to leave open access to the front or back door for collection, which happens as part of the neighborhood’s regular collection period.

Annandale Christian Community for Action

Address: 7200 Columbia Pike, Annandale, VA 22003
Phone: (703) 256-0100

The Annandale Church provides Richmond seniors with volunteer labor to help upgrade and modernize their homes. Repairs are done at no cost to qualifying seniors, who must own their residences and meet income guidelines. Limits apply to the type of work done, though weatherization and code maintenance are common.

Lifespan Respite Voucher Program

Address: 2100 Washington Blvd 4th floor, Arlington, VA 22204
Phone: (703) 228-1700

Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services offers Arlington seniors a Lifespan Respite voucher program that pays up to $400 a month toward the cost of respite care. Seniors, caregivers and loved ones can apply for this voucher through the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services online or by phone.

Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 600 East Main Street, Suite 300, Richmond, VA 23219
Phone: (804) 371 7000

The Weatherization Assistance Program provides assistance to Arlington seniors who need help upgrading their home to lower their monthly home heating and cooling bills. Income and asset limits apply to all applicants, though the program is open to both homeowners and renters. Services are provided by local contractors, though applications may be made through the state office.

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.
