Aging and Caregiving Resource Center

Since its opening on September 1, 2010, the Aging and Caregiving Resource Center 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 is staffed by Lynchburg College students and community volunteers, who 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.

The Center is a collaborative effort by the Beard Center on Aging at Lynchburg College and the Central Virginia Area Agency on Aging. It is made possible through a grant by the Genworth Foundation.

If you need assistance, please call 434.385.9070 and ask for the Resource Center. Assistance can be provided in-person, by appointment, or via telephone and e-mail. We are located at the Central Virginia Area Agency on Aging at 501 12th Street in downtown Lynchburg.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Resource Center, please contact Denise Scruggs at the Beard Center on Aging at 434.544.8456 or agingresourcecenter@lynchburg.edu for additional information about opportunities. We look forward to serving you and the greater Lynchburg community in the upcoming year.
