we do CARE a little differently

We’re a family-owned franchise located in the heart of the Northern Virginia Area.

We believe it’s time the in-home care experience became more personalized, positive, and powerful. We bring our own family’s experience as well as the smartest tech to the process of widening your care circle.


To ensure clients are provided a personalized care experience AT HOME where independence and quality of life are the foundation under which we provide care.


Providing supportive services, clients can remain at home, never having to move to an Assisted Living Facility or Nursing Home.

a new kind of CARE

We believe in care that serves and supports the whole human person as well as their immediate community. We believe that thoughtful, personalized care has the power to not only maintain but also enrich anyone’s quality of life, no matter what changes they’re facing.

And we believe that care is a two-way street. Our caregivers are true professionals, called to serve others in ways that aren’t traditionally honored or praised by the world as we know it. We recognize their gifts and we support their potential with world-class training and career opportunities.

Mark Sherwin Northern Virginia ameriCARE owner

Mark Sherwin


Over a 35+ year career (25 of which were in NOVA) Mark managed hotels and supervised the management of hotels for some of the world’s most prestigious companies including Marriott and Ritz-Carlton. Mark directly participated in and supervised the hiring, training, and compliance with OSHA and other regulations of all personnel, as well as creating a world-class guest service environment. He is committed to bringing that same level of client focus and engagement to ameriCARE NOVA. As a Certified Trainer for the Ritz-Carlton Leadership Center, Mark delivered workshops for many organizations that looked to improve their customer service and create a service-centric environment. After participating in the home care of his in-laws, and providing home care to his daughter through 21 operations, Mark and his wife Marcia decided to launch a business that could combine their passion for assisting their community, and fill a need for a first-class home care agency that helps others be happy at home.  Mark will also continue his work on the Board of Directors for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fairfax County, for which he was previously Chairperson; and on the Board for Oakton Mill Estates Home Owners Association.
