Our Mission

We joyfully serve with love and compassion, enhancing the quality of life of our clients, care team, and community.

Journey Together Home Care was founded in Mechanicsville, VA by Katie Davis. A long-time resident of Hanover County, Katie brings her home care and geriatric care management expertise to her own backyard after providing Care Management for most of the last decade for a privately owned home care company in Fredericksburg, VA. Journey Together Home Care is the home care company of choice for the counties of Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfield, and the City of Richmond.

Journey Together Home Care meets our client’s needs through flexible, dependable, and personalized services. We are a different home care and geriatric care management experience for our community, due to the strong relationships formed with our clients and our care team. We immensely value our care team and the important service they provide our community. Our journey together with each of our clients is what makes what we do a privilege to joyfully serve and love others well. We look forward to serving you!

Journey Together does not receive any referral compensation from any facility or program, which gives us the flexibility to provide unbiased advice for your loved one.

Katie Davis

Owner and Administrator

Born and raised in Poquoson, VA, Katie has very fond memories of her time with her dad and uncle out on the water crabbing and enjoying the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. She graduated from Longwood University with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and subsequently earned her Master of Public Administration degree with an emphasis in Health Care Management.

Katie spent seven years with Virginia Home Care Partners, in Fredericksburg, VA, providing geriatric care management and serving on its core leadership team. She was instrumental to it receiving “Best of the Burg” recognition as the Best Home Care Agency in the Fredericksburg area for 2022. Katie spent the last 14 years serving individuals who require support to continue living successfully in their homes, or in a facility setting with additional care. Katie specializes in care coordination for clients who live with end-of-life disease processes such as dementia, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, and cancer. Katie’s passion leads her to journey together with families to educate them about resources in the community that ultimately allows their time spent with loved ones to be more meaningful. Katie’s heart for hospice care drives her love for educating families and connecting them with palliative or hospice care resources, to ensure their loved one experiences dignity during their journey.

Katie and her husband, Stuart, have two young children and care for Katie’s parents in the same home. She knows the home care journey and her personal experience gives her a greater understanding and perspective as she leads our Care Team. Katie loves coaching and mentoring our team as they serve our community.

Katie is active in her church and enjoys serving on the audio/visual team there. When she finds the rare “down” time, Katie enjoys walking her dogs, music, cooking, and reading. One of Katie’s favorite activities is traveling the East Coast with her Father to attend concerts by Christian music artists.
With a significant family history of full and partial hearing impairment, Katie finds her own hearing impairment gives her valuable first-hand experience of working with individuals with physical disabilities.

During those 20 years, Peter specialized in supply chain management, aircraft maintenance, and budgeting.

 In 2002, Peter moved to Virginia and settled down for the first time.  Peter served as the Controller for the Hanover County Community Services Board for eight years and then co-founded and led Virginia Home Care Partners in Fredericksburg, Virginia, an award-winning home care agency, for 10 years.

As the son of medically challenged, aging parents, Peter recognized the tremendous need for quality, compassionate services for seniors.  He and Katie decided to partner in starting Journey Together Home Care in Hanover County to bring the same level of outstanding care to the Greater Richmond area. 

 Peter’s faith is especially important to him.  He actively serves his church in Fredericksburg and enjoys the occasional overseas mission trip to assist health care organizations in South Sudan develop and improve their services.
