ABOUT US

  • Grocery shopping, prescription pick up, food pantry pick up
  • Errands, voting, and non-medical needs

“Thank you for such a wonderful organization and to all the volunteers who give their time to help seniors like me.  A special thanks goes to [Darrell H] who turned the front of my house from awful to wonderful.”

SUPPORTIVE SERVICES

Supportive Services for Loudoun County residents who have physical disabilities, but because of age or income are not eligible for services provided by the county, state, or federal governments.

Caregivers provide services such as:

  • Grocery shopping for the care receiver
  • Food bank delivery
  • Respite sitting to assist families who care for family members with Alzheimers, dementia, ALS, Parkinson’s disease
  • Weekly phone calls
  • Friendly visiting
  • Help with paperwork
  • Handy Helper through the Chore Corps program

Our Money Management Program provides assistance to vulnerable low-income persons with few financial resources, who are the most vulnerable to financial exploitation or neglect. This Caregivers’ service uses a group of dedicated and trained volunteers who give their time to help with budget management for those in need.

OUR MISSION

 

Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers is a community of volunteers helping frail elderly and adults with disabilities to maintain independence and quality of life.

Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers works closely with local faith communities and agencies such as the Department of Family Services, the Department of Mental Disabilities/Mental Health, and the Area Agency on Aging to fulfill the needs of Loudoun County residents who do not qualify for sufficient help from county, state, or federal agencies and oftentimes fall through the cracks.

Established in 1995 with a grant from the National Federation of Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers, this non-profit has grown to be a vital part of the Loudoun County community with continued funding from grants, fundraising initiatives, and donations by participating businesses, congregations, civic agencies, volunteers, and collaborative partners.

“Becoming homebound has been tough but LVC and your volunteers have been such a positive experience.  I have met great people and being able to go out for coffee and the newspaper has made such a difference in my life.  I want you to know how much it has meant to me.”
