Our Services

We provide in-home care services* through two programs. We also provide a listing of private non-agency providers called the Home Care Registry. 

Call us at 703-324-7948, TTY 711, for help in determining the right program for you.

  • Adult Services
    • Services are available on the basis of eligibility after an assessment by a Department of Family Services' social worker.

  • ElderLink
    • Services are available on a sliding scale basis depending on income.

  • Home Care Registry
    • The private providers on this list are not affiliated with an agency and may be more affordable. They have been screened by the county’s Adult and Aging Division, which includes an interview, reference checks, criminal history checks and a tuberculosis test. The screening does not include observation of direct caregiving skills.

*In-home care refers to a wide range of services that help people remain in their own homes. This can include housekeeping, grocery shopping, bathing, etc.

We help people with concerns about care provided by in-home care providers.

Cost of Service

Some of the in-home care services are free and others have fees based on income eligibility criteria.
