What Our Clients Say
My husband’s two aides are SUPERB employees. They are always reliable and their work ethics truly display the excellent quality of care every aide should give to their client. I strongly believe that their remarkable care to his needs have greatly affected his health in a very positive way.
When you can no longer manage around the house by yourself, finding the right care can be overwhelming. For those with limited financial resources, the process is even more challenging. Home Care Partners is there to help seniors and adults with disabilities, whether the need is for cooking or cleaning or bathing and dressing. As a nonprofit organization, we work with city and county agencies in the DC area to send well-trained home care aides to provide non-medical care and help around the home. We also help families to cope with the responsibilities of caring for a loved one and operate a Training Institute for direct care workers and family caregivers.
The Home Care Partners Training Institute offers DC Board of Nursing-approved classes for home care aide certification and “bridge training” for certified nursing assistants. Our classes are taught by registered nurses with extensive experience in community care. The class schedule is established at the beginning of the year. The Training Institute provides in-service training courses to HCP employees and continuing education classes through CE Broker (https://www.cebroker.com/public/pb_course_search.aspx).
Because we work in partnership with city and county programs, the eligibility requirements varies by each jurisdiction. Clients needing services in Arlington must be approved first through the County which refers clients to us. A similar requirement applies for veterans through the Veterans Administration. Most residents of Montgomery or Prince George’s County must also be approved first through the community partner agency, although there are exceptions for our Light Care and private pay clients. Residents of DC can contact our office directly or seek help through the Aging and Disability Resource Center in their ward.
