LeadingAge Virginia is an association of not-for-profit aging services organizations serving residents and clients through life plan/continuing care retirement communities, senior housing, assisted living, nursing homes, adult day centers and home and community based services. We are not-for-profit organizations working together to expand the world of possibilities for aging.

LeadingAge Virginia effects policy and advocacy. Through education and shared learning, our members continue to improve their quality programs and services. We offer a growing abundance of educational opportunities, provider connections and public resources for those seeking trustworthy advice about aging.

LeadingAge Virginia’s strategic plan aspires to achieve our vision of positive aging for each Virginian.

The Riverside Center for Excellence in Aging and Lifelong Health’s (CEALH) mission is to integrate interdisciplinary aging research with clinical capabilities to develop innovative programming that can be applied and sustained by Riverside Health System, the community, and other providers of aging-related services to improve care and better meet the needs of a growing older adult population.

Its vision is to lead the development of model communities that will promote the well-being and independence of people as they age through translational research and widespread application.

The Virginia Health Care AssociationVirginia Center for Assisted Living (VHCA-VCAL) is a member-driven organization dedicated to advocating for and representing the interests of over 300 Virginia nursing centers and assisted living communities, the 29,000 residents they serve through the selfless efforts of nearly 30,000 dedicated care-giving staff. We’re proud of our role as the Commonwealth’s largest association representing long term care.

VHCA-VCAL’s strength, effectiveness, and integrity are significantly enhanced by the diversity of its membership which includes proprietary, non-profit, and government-operated facilities. VHCA-VCAL members are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care and enhancing the quality of life for individuals needing traditional long term residential nursing home, sub-acute or short-term care, rehabilitative and assisted living services.
