AASC Building For the Future


Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens (AASC) has broken ground on a new child day care center at the Cedar Bluff location.

Generations at Cedar Bluff provides preschool, as well as before- and after-school programs, all in an intergenerational atmosphere. Together, children and adults participate in special activities, including a pen pal program and a celebration of our Appalachian heritage.

Generations integrates the wisdom and insight of the elderly with the energy and enthusiasm of the young. Intergenerational day care offers children the opportunity to take part in carefully selected, supervised activities with senior citizens.

“AASC is excited to expand services in a new facility to offer our intergenerational programs to more children. With the addition of the new child day care facility we will be able to enlarge our AllCARE for Seniors Day Center and allow for more activities. This is truly a win-win for both programs” stated Regina Sayers, Executive Director of AASC.

AASC is one of Virginia’s 25 Area Agencies on Aging designated by the Virginia Department for the Aging to carry out the department’s mission to foster the dignity, independence and security of older Virginians by promoting partnerships with communities at the local level. AASC offers information and services for older adults residing in Buchanan, Dickenson, Russell and Tazewell counties.

Tazewell County Public Library Donates Books


Tazewell County Public Library recently donated a large number of books to Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens for use in their eight nutrition sites and two adult day care centers.

“AASC is so excited to receive these awesome books for our seniors! We have so many seniors who enjoy reading but simply cannot make it to the library to check out books on a regular basis. This is essentially bringing the library to them and for that we are so thankful” expressed Chase Meade-Patton, Director of Public Relations for AASC.

AASC operates eight nutrition sites throughout the Buchanan, Dickenson, Russell and Tazewell counties that encourage seniors to come together for fun, fellowship and a wonderful meal. The sites are open two days a week in Tazewell, Richlands, Dante, Swords Creek, Clintwood, Clinchco, and Pocahontas. The Grundy Nutrition site is open three days a week. AASC’s Adult Day Care Centers operate in Cedar Bluff and Haysi and are open five days a week.

If you have any questions concerning the nutrition sites or adult day care please contact AASC at 276.964.4915.
