The small town of Vienna, which is located just 17 miles from Washington D.C. has a senior community that accounts for nearly 14% of the population. It was listed by CNN Money Magazine in 2013 on its Best Places to Live list for its high walkability, unique stores and local eateries. The city is home to the Patrick Henry Library, which has a collection of roughly 95,000 volumes. and hosts a variety of programs and events throughout the year, including adult summer reading programs, author talks and musical guests.     

In Vienna, seniors who need assistance with the activities of daily living but desire to remain in their home may receive home care services. According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care report, home care, including homemaker and home health aide services, are a little pricier in the Vienna region than in the nation as a whole. On average, homemaker services cost $22.50 per hour and home health aide services cost $23.38 per hour, compared to the respective national hourly rates of $21.00 and $22.00. 

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

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

Vienna 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 Vienna:

Home Repair for the Elderly Program

This program is administered by the Department of Housing and Community Development in coordination with CHP Energy Solutions, a local non-profit organization.

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.
