Catharpin is a small, rural town in Prince William County that’s known for its safety and historical significance. The community is located right next to Manassas Battlefield National Park, which played an important role during the Civil War, and Washington D.C., which has many big-city services and amenities, is less than an hour’s drive east. Seniors aged 65 and over make up 19.1% of the population in this unincorporated community. 

Seniors in Catharpin who would rather age in place than move to an assisted living facility have many options available for in-home care. Agencies in the area charge an average of $22.50 per hour according to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care Survey. For seniors that need about 44 hours of service per week, the average monthly cost is $4,290 for in-home care and $4,458 for home health care. The price of care in Catharpin is slightly more than the national average of $21 per hour for in-home care and $22 per hour for home health care.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Catharpin, so data for the closest city, Washington D.C., was used.

Catharpin 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 Catharpin:

Meals on Wheels

Address: 5 County Complex Court, Suite 240, Prince William, VA 22192
Phone: (703) 792-6374

Catharpin seniors may be eligible to receive nutritious, prepared meals Monday through Friday from the nearest senior center. The program is administered by the Prince William Area Agency on Aging in Partnership with No Wrong Door. To be eligible, seniors must be aged 60 or over and be unable to prepare their own meals or leave the house to get meals. Shelf-stable or frozen items will be delivered to seniors who can’t be reached every day of the week.

Energy Assistance Program

Address: 7987 Ashton Avenue, Suite 200, Manassas, VA 20109
Phone: (703) 792-7500

The Prince William County Department of Social Services, with funding help from the federal government, provides financial assistance for seniors who are unable to pay for their heating or cooling bills. Applications for heating assistance must be submitted in October or November, and cooling assistance applications are accepted June 15 through August 15. Funds can be used for paying heating bills, purchasing or repairing cooling systems and cooling fans. There are no fees for this program.

Tax Relief for Elderly and Disabled Program

Depending on income, some seniors in Catharpin may be eligible for relief on their property taxes. Applicants must be aged 65 or over, have a gross household income of less than $89,900, have a combined financial net worth of $340,000 or less and currently reside in the property for which they are seeking tax relief. These eligibility requirements can change from year to year.

Project Mend-A-House

Address: 8787 Commerce Court, Manassas, VA 20110
Phone: (703) 792-7663

This non-profit organization serves low-income seniors in Prince William County, including Catharpin, with home repairs and modifications that allow for aging in place. They recruit volunteer carpenters, plumbers, electricians, gardeners and other professionals to work at no charge to the homeowner. Funds and materials are sourced from the county government as well as various private and non-profit organizations. The organization also provides fall assessment screenings to help seniors reduce their chances of getting injured.

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.
