Fairfax County - South

Introduction

Home Instead is the leading home care provider in Fairfax County - South. We’ve earned 5.0 stars on Google because “To us, it’s Personal.” Our clients love us and we love them, and we understand that the heart of our company is our caregivers.

Our Culture

At Home Instead Annandale, you will be more than just a Caregiver. You will be a Care Professional (CarePro). We strive to honor and respect every CarePro for their unique gifts. We have a thorough training program to prepare you for your assignments, a recognition program to ensure you get the credit you deserve, and competitive pay & benefits so your efforts can support you and your family.

Typical Shift

Your shift will start with traveling to the home of your assigned client. Client needs vary, so we match Care Professionals’ skills to the client's needs. You may be asked to do light housekeeping, companionship, outings, medical appointments, showers, toileting, medication reminders, dressing, grooming, oral care, escorting, transferring, or any other ADL or IADL according to the client’s needs.
