Centreville, Virginia, is a suburb of Washington, D. C. The town has a history that stretches back to Pre-Revolutionary War days and was especially pivotal in the U.S. Civil War, as the site of the first military-use railroad, which should interest seniors who enjoy history. Other seniors may like exploring Old Town Alexandria, with shopping and dining opportunities in a quaint, cobblestoned setting. 

Centreville’s proximity to the nation’s capital affords retirees the resources of a larger city while allowing them to live in a smaller community. Many of the 8% of Centreville’s residents seniors aged 65 and older enjoy going to the Sully Senior Center to socialize or take a class. Centreville’s temperate climate, easy access to a larger city and range of things to do make it an appealing choice for seniors who wish to age in place. 

Many seniors in Centreville opt to spend their golden years in their own homes and familiar communities. To help these individuals preserve their independence, homemaker services and home health care aides from one of the town’s reputable agencies provide assistance for those who choose to age in place. Costs for homemaker services, according to Genworth’s Cost of Care 2018 Survey, averages $22.50 per hour for homemaker assistance and $23.38 for home health care. The national average for these services is $21 and $22, respectively. For Centreville seniors, the average monthly cost for home care services ranges from $4,290 to $4,458 per month.

Centreville 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 Centreville:

Fairfax County Services for Older Adults

Address: 12011 Government Center Parkway, Suite 708, Fairfax, VA 22035
Phone: (703) 324-7948 

Companionship, caregiver respite counseling and access to Adult Protective Services are some of the assistance programs that this agency offers Centreville residents. It has several different options for socialization, including volunteer opportunities and special events for seniors. The agency also has case managers who can help seniors access health care services and benefits they may be eligible for. 

Home Repair Program For the Elderly

Address: 3700 Pender Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030
Phone: (703) 246-5100 

Services from this agency include emergency home repair for low-income seniors in need of assistance to make the houses liveable. The program also has renovation modification services, such as installing ramps or safety railings, to help seniors with limited mobility remain in their home and retain their independence. It’s a state-funded program with many volunteers, but each project is overseen by a licensed contractor, and all modifications are built in accordance with local and state building regulations. 

Shepherd’s Center of Oakton-Vienna

Address: 541 Marshall Road SW, Vienna, VA 22180
Phone: (703) 281-0538 

SCOV provides free transportation for seniors in the Northern Virginia area to medical appointments or shopping trips.

The program also offers minor home repair services and resources for seniors to access health care or financial benefits that they may be entitled to. 

Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FHA)

Address: 3700 Pender Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030
Phone: (703) 246-5100

Seniors who need affordable housing may qualify for this program. It’s income-based, and vouchers are provided for those who qualify, although space is limited. The FHA renovates existing homes in affordable areas to make them safe for seniors to age in place. It also builds newer apartments that are also equipped with modifications, such as ramps or safety bars. 

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.
