Providing older adults with the housing and care they need to be healthy and thrive.
For over 125 years, Volunteers of America has responded to the nation’s healthcare needs. Today, we are a major provider of professional long-term nursing care for older adults and others coping with illness or injury. We offer a continuum of services in our senior living and care communities that extends to people with disabilities and includes long-term health support: nursing care, assisted living, memory support, home health care, rehabilitation, and much more.
Volunteers of America owns and operates over 30 senior living and care communities throughout the United States and is dedicated to providing supportive, nurturing environments with services designed specifically for each individual.
For older adults, maintaining independence is very important. At Volunteers of America, we provide housing for seniors who want to live independent lifestyles where they can thrive and age in place. Our senior residents deserve the quality of life that they desire, and our commitment to service-enriched housing offers them just that.
Service Coordinator programs are located within most of our senior housing communities and they enhance the quality of life for residents in our communities by enabling seniors to live independently and longer in their own homes and improve the quality of their lives by linking them with supportive services within the community.
Aging for seniors can be a complex experience and we strive to change this stigma by helping older Americans celebrate the joy of living by creating a sustained and trusted relationship with support systems that allow seniors to age at home – wherever that may be.
Senior Center and Meal Programs
Senior Centers provide an opportunity for seniors to come together as a group for services and activities that will enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage their involvement in their community. Senior Centers offer a wide range of programs and activities for older adults, including meals, counseling, education, transportation, and health screening.
Volunteers of America also offers nutritious meals to older adults at community dining sites, as well as home-delivered meals and nutrition counseling. These programs intend to improve the dietary intake of seniors, providing one-third of the daily recommended nutritional requirements, and offering seniors an opportunity to form new friendships. A nourishing meal is just the beginning of our story. Senior CommUnity Meals is a dedicated team of staff and volunteers striving to help older adults live healthier lives. We provide nutritious meals at community sites, and home-deliver with Mom’s Meals offered with a generous helping of companionship.
