Welcome to the website of the Virginia Center on Aging (VCoA). We hope that your search is productive. We are a statewide agency created by the Virginia General Assembly, with our home at Virginia Commonwealth University in the School of Allied Health Professions. For almost 40 years, VCoA has worked to protect and improve the quality of life of older Virginians, so that they might remain interdependent and contributing members to life in Virginia. Partnerships with others have made our initiatives possible. Please contact us if you wish to join us in accomplishing this work, and please enjoy this video that provides more information.
