About

America is aging.  Right now 13 percent of the U.S. population is over the age of 65; by 2025 that age group will grow to nearly 20 percent.

Of these seniors, two-thirds of them over the age of 85 are homebound and unable to travel for routine healthcare.  We at The GW Medical Faculty Associates House Call Program are committed to caring for this underserved and vulnerable population.

Many seniors say they would prefer to stay in their homes, or “age in place,” for as long as possible.  Home care makes aging in place a reality for millions of seniors so they can continue living where they feel happiest and most comfortable — their home.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your help!

Your support provides our caregivers the resources they need and our patients access to the care they deserve:

  • 24-hour access to a dedicated care line to speak with a familiar caregiver
  • Access to social work services
  • Access to wellness programs
  • Mobile technology for secure records access

The program maintains a lengthy waiting list of patients in need of care and relies on the support of generous donors, like you, to sustain and grow the program to meet the needs of some of the area’s most vulnerable.

Will you help us reach seniors in the Washington, D.C. community that otherwise might get overlooked? Donors like you ensure our seniors are given the compassion and care they deserve while aging in the place they call home.
