Fairfax Serving Falls Church, Arlington County and Alexandria

Elder Care

No matter what, we make sure that we have a special team of caregivers that work with a specific client to ensure the continuity of care. We work hard to make sure that our care team is consistent for each client from Potomac through Burke, because that's the Homewatch CareGivers of Fairfax standard.

At Homewatch Caregivers of Fairfax and Falls Church we are not just caring for a client’s physical needs​, ​we are there for the clients emotional needs as well.  The three most common emotions that elderly deal with are loneliness, helplessness and boredom.   Our Caregivers are trained to interact with the client​ and ​include them in decisions about what they want to do while the care giver is there, involving them in the care decision.  That includes giving choices on which outfit they would like to wear to go on special outing.  Or helping with putting the grocery list together, getting their input on what they would like to eat.  If able, helping with preparing their meal​ and engaging them in conversations about their lives.  Having the Client teach the caregiver how to knit, play a card game cook a family recipe helps bring purpose.  ​We feel strongly about finding out what interests the client and places they would like to go to.

We help the client improve his or her quality of life.  So instead of loneliness they have companionship, instead of feeling helplessness they are active participants in their life and instead of boredom they have activities to look forward to.   

Our caregivers receive ongoing training and education in order to provide the best care we can and to help the client have as active life as possible.

In home care can provide meaningful companionship for people who have limited social engagement due to health problems. Studies show that feelings of loneliness can lead to depression and even dementia. With our caregiver matching, we aim to create a mutually beneficial relationship between clients and caregivers as your loved one continues to grow and learn through social interactions. We can also provide transportation to church and other outings with old friends in communities such as Vienna, Lorton, Belleview and more.
A need for 24-hour care in the home may last for a few days or for many years. Continuous round-the-clock care provided by Homewatch CareGivers of Fairfax can maximize the time that someone has with their family, while also making them comfortable and safe. Our flexible home care service plans can make caregivers available on shifts that cover day and night for all kinds of needs—specialized personal care related to immobility, toileting, meal preparation, and support through the end of life and grief process.
Homewatch CareGivers of Fairfax specializes in elder care for people who need assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, and meal preparation. Our caregivers are trained and educated to address the unique interests and needs of each person that they spend time with, whether they are with them for a couple of hours a day or 24 hours a day. We aim to engage our clients with meaningful experiences that will enrich their lives, while giving their family peace of mind that they are well cared for with us. 
When we come into the home of an elder, we start by talking to them about their current abilities, needs, and preferences, and then we are able to craft a care plan to address this individual. Senior home care is about making sure that each person is able to continue living independently and safely for as long as they are able and choose this for themselves. Our caregivers are matched with each client so that they can also be true companions who reduce any feelings of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom right at home in Fairfax.
Maintaining good health is part of preventative care, which may be the difference between staying at home and going to the hospital. For those who are recovering from a hospital stay, our caregivers can help with sticking to a physical therapy regimen, giving reminders about properly taking medications, and reviewing potential falls hazards in the home in order to reduce the possibility of a hospital readmission.
