Aging Together supports the five counties of Planning District 9 in Virginia.
Aging Together is a partnership-driven agency that helps our region prepare for an unprecedented growth in the older population, assuring local residents will have the services and supports they need as they age.
This partnership is built on an alliance of more than 150 regional organizations and individuals who actively participate in one or more County Teams that work in their communities and collaborate across agencies, counties and interest areas.
Participants are mostly volunteers that include senior citizens, home care and hospice agency staff, hospital representatives, service providers, faith community leaders, business employees, law enforcement and first responders, local government officials, and other concerned citizens.
This unique model of collaboration assures success in developing programs and services that make sense at the local level,since those who work and live in a community are most aware of its gaps.
