Who We Are

The Virginia Association of Area Agencies on Aging (V4A), a private, non-profit 501(c) (3) organization,  was established in 1976, to provide the following:

Advocacy

Communication

Training & Education

V4A believes that there should be resources necessary to maintain a range of locally determined support services for older Virginians and their families.

V4A believes these services should help supplement family care in the setting of choice with the assurance of quality.

V4A believes care of the elderly is a family issue, impacting lifestyles, job performance and financial well-being.

The Virginia Association on Area Agencies also utilizes federal, state, local and private resources to operate the statewide programs of Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program and Senior Medicare Patrol.
