Aging and Caregiving Resource Center
The Beard Center on Aging helped launch the Aging and Caregiving Resource Center on September 1, 2010. The Resource Center was made possible by a grant from the Genworth Foundation.
Now run by the Central Virginia Alliance for Community Living (CVACL), the Resource Center and has served hundreds of clients in Region 2000. The Resource Center connects older adults, caregivers, family members, business managers, pastors and anyone interested in successful aging and caregiving with information, resources and services.
The Center houses hundreds of free publications on aging and caregiving, as well as books, DVDs and other materials available for loan. Popular topics include Alzheimer's disease and dementia, healthy aging, managing the stress and anxiety of caregiving, local available resources and service providers, driving and safety.
The Resource Center staff can answer questions, provide referral information and research topics as requested. Services are provided free of charge and are available in-person by appointment or through a telephone consultation.
If you need assistance, please call 434.385.9070. The Resource Center is located at 501 12th Street in downtown Lynchburg.
