Senior Programs

AppCAA values the contributions made by the seniors in our service area. We look to keep those seniors in homes as they age and keep them as comfortable as possible. We also hope to be able to utilize their expertise through volunteer projects.

CHORE Program

According to AARP, 90% of seniors want to remain in their own homes as they age. Despite this, many of them end up living in nursing homes and long-term care facilities. The Chore Program helps the elderly and disabled people to remain at home by providing light housekeeping services, running errands, and even preparing meals on occasion. By supporting members of the community in their activities of daily living, Chore helps them save money and maintain a greater sense of independence. This service is provided for FREE.

Participants served by Chore service are accepted based on need and require a referral form from a medical doctor. Currently, this program operates in Scott County. If you would like more information, please call our office at (276) 885-0187.

RSVP volunteers choose how, where, and how often they want to serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours to 40 hours per week. Volunteers receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where they will serve, and supplemental insurance while on duty.
