Hours of Operation
Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens (AASC) is a private non-profit organization formed in 1975 to improve the quality of life for the elderly through charitable, educational, social services, and other appropriate means. The Agency was created pursuant to the Older Americans Act, which is designated by contract with the Virginia Department for the Aging to develop and administer the Area Plan, as approved, for a comprehensive and coordinated system of services for older and disabled persons.
AASC also operates a state-licensed multi-service intergenerational daycare center that provides daily care including supervision, personal and social support. In addition, AASC operates the public transit system in PSA (2) and is funded through the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transit. AASC operates AllCARE for Seniors which is a rural PACE program that provides inclusive care for the elderly in PSA (2). The Agency’s service area is Planning and Service Area (2) that comprises the counties of Russell, Buchanan, Dickenson, and Tazewell, located in Southwest Virginia.
Aging is not a choice, however, aging well is. At AASC we firmly believe in fostering programs aimed at helping seniors stay within their homes and community as long as possible with dignity and grace. Our numerous programs work toward that goal, from Meals on Wheels delivery for home-bound seniors and disabled persons to homemakers and personal care aides that assist with bathing or dressing. AASC’s main focus is to assure that every senior is treated with respect and dignity by responding to their needs with respect.
