The town of Clifton occupies a large patch of wooded parkland between the Civil War national monuments of Manassas to the west, and the more populous residential suburb of Fairfax Station in Fairfax County to the east. Less than 300 people live in Clifton, and though only 4% of the population is over age 65, half of the town’s residents are aged 54 and over. Seniors in Clifton have easy access to shopping in the surrounding areas, as well as visits to historic Civil War battlefields like Manassas and the historic chapel on Main St. and Chapel Rd. Seniors can get around the region at a discount on any Washington Metro bus or light rail. Discounts for seniors in Clifton do not require a transit ID, and scheduled routes with ADA-compliant vehicles connect throughout the Washington, D.C. area every weekday.

Homemaker services in Clifton cost seniors an average of $4,004 a month, or $20.75 an hour, on average, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. Seniors in Clifton pay an average of $4,242 a month for home health aides, which works out to $20.95 an hour. These figures are somewhat more/less than national rates. Nationally, seniors pay an average of $4,004 a month for homemaker services and $4,195 a month for home health aides. This is equivalent to $21 and $22 an hour, respectively.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Clifton, so data for the closest city, Baltimore, MD, was used.

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.

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.

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.
