LeadingAge Virginia was founded in 1973 by nursing home administrators who believed that nonprofit homes were unique in their needs and resources and required their own organization.
LeadingAge Virginia is an association of not-for-profit aging services organizations serving residents and clients through life plan/continuing care retirement communities, senior housing, assisted living, nursing homes, adult day centers and home and community based services. We are not-for-profit organizations working together to expand the world of possibilities for aging.
Each of our members has an inspiring story to tell. Passion for the people we serve, innovation and strong values permeate our association. Visit our member directory to learn more about our members.
LeadingAge Virginia effects policy and advocacy. Through education and shared learning, our members continue to improve their quality programs and services. We offer a growing abundance of educational opportunities, provider connections and public resources for those seeking trustworthy advice about aging. Our sponsors and business members make all of this possible.
Our national partner, LeadingAge, includes 6,000 not-for-profit organizations throughout the United States and envisions an America freed from ageism.
LeadingAge Virginia’s strategic plan aspires to achieve our vision of positive aging for each Virginian. This big vision requires collaboration and stakeholder involvement. We hope you will join in our efforts – let us know how you would like to be involved.
