Brett Sanders

Welcome to Assisting Hands Home Care and thank you for entrusting us with your in-home care needs. I'm Brett Sanders, the proud local owner of Assisting Hands Home Care in Arlington. With over two decades deeply rooted in the Northern Virginia community, my passion is clear – ensuring the well-being and comfort of those requiring assistance. Each day offers a fresh opportunity to make a difference, and I am humbled by every chance to uplift and support individuals in community.

As a Certified Senior Advisor and Certified Dementia Practitioner, I am intimately acquainted with the challenges the aging process presents, not just for the individual but for their families as well. Recognizing that every client has unique needs, histories, and aspirations, our mission extends beyond merely providing non-medical care. We aim to promote healthfulness, enhance well-being, improve quality of life, achieve maximum independence, and provide an invaluable peace of mind for both our clients and their families.

Beyond the walls of Assisting Hands, my commitment to the community remains unwavering. I have participated in initiatives like Meals on Wheels, Dementia Friendly America, Arlington Community Centers, the Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Alliance, among other volunteer endeavors.

On a personal note, I treasure moments with my lovely wife and our three spirited young boys. I’m a regular at a local CrossFit gym, a dedicated Washington Nationals fan, and live music enthusiast.
