Home Care Services

“After 25 years of providing Home Health Care Services in Virginia, I realized that there’s more to CARE than just providing Personal Care Assistance, Mobile Salon/Spa Services, and Livability Assessments. While those services are wonderful for our recipients,  we are now in a “Dawn of a New Day”  where there is currently a shortage of care providers to facilitate the future demand of an aging and differently-able population. Therefore, I-CARE is launching a new division called ICARE2Aide Training Center.”
