In order to strengthen, support, raise public awareness, and enhance the collaboration between community-based organizations, churches and government concerning senior service needs in our counties, Aging Together hosts monthly meetings throughout our five county service area. Our activities include the following:
- Partnering with area professionals to plan educational programs for seniors and caregivers
- Community networking
- Guest speakers on relevant topics
- Spreading the word on important community services and happenings
- Planning annual events such as the Five Over Fifty Awards, The Senior Prom, and The Art of Aging Expo

We are working with Rapp at Home, a “village” created to give seniors some services to allow them to stay safely in their own homes. Past programs at the Rappahannock Library include safe driving as we age and behavior and communication for a person with dementia.
