Volunteer Action for Aging is oper­ated by Independence at Home (IAH) a not-for-profit organization founded to help older adults and disabled people stay in their homes and communities for as long as safely possible.

Volunteer Action for Aging (VAA) program, a volunteer network, was cre­ated to connect seniors and disabled adults to caring individuals from their own communities.

Volunteer coordinators recruit, vet and train volunteers interested in mak­ing a meaningful difference in the lives of people who often live in isolation. Volunteers regularly call seniors, con­duct friendly home visits, and partici­pate in activities that offer social con­tact that results in a higher quality of life.

VAA volunteers provide a valuable source of reassurance and social con­tact. Volunteer opportunities are avail­able through the following activities: • Trained volunteers provide comfort and companionship with friendly visits • Hygiene kit assembly and distribution • Cell phone connection • Style days • Gift bag and food deliveries • Ice cream socials • Film screenings • Guided autobiography classes and story sharing • Serve days • Letter writing to servicemen and women and distribution • Give Back Club • Rhythm and drumming circles • Arts and crafts workshops • Music for the Soul performances and sing-a-longs
