Aging Together is a regional organization committed to connecting people to resources and communities to improve quality of life as we age. We represent a collaborative effort in Planning District 9 (Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange & Rappahannock) with over 150 partner agencies and providers to ensure our region has the services and supports necessary for quality of life as we age. Our partners include:
We work through our County Team Network – County Team members meet monthly to discuss local needs and to brainstorm solutions.
AGING TOGETHER AND PARTNERS HAVE HAD A BIG IMPACT IN OUR REGION:
Like many organizations we had to pivot and respond quickly to the pandemic to ensure we addressed the needs of older adults – social isolation and loneliness became an immediate issue for older adults as well as awareness of issues in long- term care.
AGING TOGETHER'S RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC:
With your help, Aging Together can continue to:
"I have been informed that your volunteers with PATH and Culpeper Aging Together have made it through scheduling the thousands of names we forwarded you over the past several months. Please let your volunteers know they played a critical role in our local distribution of COVID-19 vaccinations for the Rappahannock Rapidan Health District. It was a true pleasure working with each of your organizations and I heard nothing but good things from our staff that worked closely with your volunteers. I would personally like to thank both of you for coming forward so quickly back in February to get our teams organized and a plan in place to help facilitate scheduling our elderly and most vulnerable citizens. The fact is you and your teams played a critical role in saving lives and that is something to really be proud of." - Mr. Whitney Wright, Environmental Health Manager SeniorRappahannock Rapidan Health District
"We were delighted to receive 2 iPads last week and started using them immediately. So far, we’ve used them for tele-health visits, and capturing pictures of the residents in various activities. These photos we email to families as they are not able to see their loved ones in our building due to the COVID-19 virus". - Community Relations Director, The Villa at Suffield Meadows, 2020
"I’m sorry I’ll miss the meeting; it's always so nice to see everyone, hear ideas, learn from others and collaborate with one another. Aging Together by far is one of the most awesome groups to work with (wish we could copy and paste your programs into every region/county)!!" - M.S./ Capital Caring Health / January 2021
