Home Health Care Providers in Virginia

In-Home Care can be provided in Virginia by either a home care agency or private duty caregivers. Agencies have physical locations and are more strictly regulated by the state, but many more experienced caregivers decide to work directly for the family as private duty home health aides so they can avoid the agency overhead that cuts into their wages.

The Virginia Board of Nursing provides an easy to use portal for verifying the license information for Caregivers in Virginia so you can ensure that your Caregiver is qualified.
