Aging Together is a collaborative effort to help our region (Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange & Rappahannock Counties) prepare for unprecedented growth in the older population. We seek to assure local residents will have the services and supports they need as they age. This partnership is built on an alliance of organizations and individuals who actively participate in one or more County Teams and regional committees; and work together across agencies, counties and interest areas. Using this unique collaboration at both local and regional levels, Aging Together has changed the way our communities do business and has been recognized by state and national organizations as a leader in the field of aging.
We've done programs on Safe Medication Use, Storage and Disposal; Scams and Identity Theft; Management of Chronic Illness; Driving As You're Getting Older; How to be an Alzheimer's-Friendly Business; Navigating the Stages of Senior Care; and much more. Our June 2018 conference at Germanna Community College featuring Teepa Snow, nationally known expert on dementia care, drew over 370 people, from all over the state and beyond. With our 150+ community partners -- hospitals, home care agencies, senior centers, church leaders, social workers and more -- we provide programs geared to education, training, celebrating the achievements of older people and even fun! We've conducted dozens of classes and events each year and our attendees always rate our presentations highly.
