At Valley Program for Aging Services
(VPAS), we are your local experts on aging. We've been helping adults 60 years and older and their families navigate aging for more than 40 years. We're located in 5 counties throughout the Shenandoah Valley: Augusta, Bath, Rockbridge, Rockingham, Highland, and the cities within.
VPAS creates a circle of care for older adults and their caregivers that helps them to lead healthy and engaged lives. We provide solutions customized to the unique needs of our neighbors
, including meals for homebound residents, senior center and recreation programs, transportation, Medicare counseling, in-home personal care, health classes, and referrals to a host of other services.
By 2030, as many as 1 in 3 residents in our community will be 65 and older, with the highest percentage in rural areas. An extraordinary number of older adults will require resources, specialized care, and support to live to their fullest potential.
At the same time, it is expected that the number of family caregivers for older adults will decrease significantly. As the number of caregivers decreases, the emotional, physical, mental and financial burden on them grows.
That’s why older adults and their families turn to VPAS. Our staff can assist individuals and families in navigating the joys and challenges that come with aging and caregiving.
