​Helping Seniors in Richmond since 1997. And now we're proud to serve the Northern Neck area, too.​

​Every day, all across America, families are struggling to cope.  Many are raising children, working demanding jobs and trying to care for a senior family member.  These Americans are often called the "Sandwich Generation," and they are growing in numbers.  That's because America is aging in record numbers.

By the year 2020, the number of seniors will equal the number of 20 to 35 year olds.  Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles will help seniors work longer and continue to lead more productive lives.  But the numbers also tell another story.  More and more children need to help care for their parents.  These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day, the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken.

​Enter Home Instead Senior Care of Richmond

We offer an affordable solution for the seniors among us who may require assistance with light housekeeping, meal preparation, medication reminders, bathing or personal care, grocery shopping, errands,Alzheimer's Care, or companionship in order to remain in their homes. 

No matter where seniors live, in their homes, in assisted living facilities or even nursing homes, Home Instead Senior Care is currently providing over 200,000 hours of senior home care services annually to the Greater Richmond area.  Since 1997, we have been your trusted source for comprehensive companionship and home care services throughout Richmond. 

And, we have recently expanded our services to the Northern Neck area with the opening of our newest office location in Tappahannock, Virginia.

Service can be arranged for as little as 3 hours, or as many as 24 hours to 7 days per week (including holidays). This one-on-one service is performed by CAREGivers who are bonded and insured after undergoing stringent background checks.  Our compassionate CAREGivers love working with seniors and very special attention is given to matching them with clients to achieve the utmost compatibility.

​​To the Owner, it's personal....

​​Teresa Steinfatt is the franchise owner of the Greater Richmond and Tappahanock offices of Home Instead Senior Care. While seeing her own family members struggle with how to care for their parents and friends, the Steinfatt’s recognized a need that had to be addressed. Through extensive research and exploring all options they discovered Home Instead Senior Care. They were extremely impressed with the professionalism and sincerity exhibited by the Home Instead Senior Care corporate staff in Omaha, Nebraska. Teresa along with her husband, Torsten, opened Home Instead Senior Care locally on September 1, 1997 as its only employees. They began as one of the original franchises and have developed an organization that truly cares about people and provides the utmost customer satisfaction.

Tragically, cancer took Torsten far before his time, which gave Teresa an even deeper understanding of the feelings and challenges that so many clients they serve are going through.

Home Instead Senior Care is the world's largest provider of non-medical home care services to seniors and Teresa is proud to bring that experience to the Greater Richmond area. Today, the business employs more than 350 full and part-time employees, and is among the largest of the more than 900 franchise groups for Home Instead Senior Care world wide.

Teresa has an extensive background in business as well as the healthcare industry specifically, which blends well for her work for serving seniors.

​​According to Teresa, "I feel extremely blessed with the opportunity to work in a business that provides one of the most needed services in the world today. Our staff, our CAREGivers and I are so fortunate to work in a business that rewards us through the heartfelt appreciation of our clients and their family members’."
