Springfield is a quiet community in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. People age 65 and over make up 17.5% of the population here, which is 1.5% above the national average. That may be because of a low rate of violent crime and close proximity to world-class arts and culture destinations. Seniors here also enjoy visiting Springfield Town Center for its fine shopping, restaurants and entertainment. 

Seniors in Springfield who want to remain in their own homes have access to many home care agencies in the area. These agencies charge an average of $22.50 per hour according to the Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care Survey. The average yearly cost, at 44 hours per week, for in-home care is $51,480 while the average yearly cost for a home health aide is $53,493. The national yearly average for in-home care is $48,048.

Springfield 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 Springfield:

Home Repair for the Elderly Program

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

This home repair program is designed to help low and moderate income elderly homeowners with repairs and modifications so that they can age comfortably in their residence. It provides one week of labor from a crew and up to $500 worth of materials completely free of charge. Crews can repair doors and windows, replace screens, fix plumbing and install grab bars, railing and other accessibility devices. Expedited service is available for emergencies like roof leaks, broken water heaters and electrical shorts.

Respite Subsidy Program

Phone: (703) 914-3901

Provided by the Hartwood Foundation and Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board, this respite program offers relief for primary caregivers. Approved applicants will get a subsidy to help pay for skilled specialists who can come to the home and provide short-term care. There are pre-authorization procedures and instructions the applicants need to follow to be eligible. Fees are charged based on the ability of the family to pay. 

Virginia Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 214 Fort Collier Road Suite 3, Winchester, VA 22603
Phone: (540) 665-0200

Delivered through Community Housing Partners (CHP), this program funds repairs and improvements to homes with a variety of heating and cooling problems. Eligible applicants will be visited by an auditor who will examine the home to see what kind of weatherization work is needed. Workers will then visit to perform improvements and repairs on doors, windows, insulation and heating or cooling systems. These are designed to increase the safety of seniors and improve energy efficiency.
