The Cedar Bluff facility provides services for participants in Buchanan, Russell, and Tazewell counties.

Anyone of any age can ride Four County Transit’s public routes. We are a fully coordinated public transit system serving the residents of Buchanan, Dickenson, Russell, and Tazewell counties.

Our Nutrition program provides hot, frozen, or canned meals to eligible senior citizens. This is one nutritious meal per day, seven days a week. We deliver the meals every 14 days.

Ombudsman

The ombudsman is an advocate helps older adults have a voice in what happens to them, ensures their quality of care meets the standards set forth in state and federal laws and guidelines, and works with residents, families, and management to ensure that nursing home and assisted living facility residents are treated with dignity and respect.

Guardianship

The Virginia Department for the Aging (VDA) has funded Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens (AASC) to provide public guardianship services to individuals in Buchanan and Tazewell counties.

Emergency In-Home Repair
