Welcome to the Virginia department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services.
Over the last four decades, all of society has benefited from the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as the Virginians with Disabilities Act.
These laws have removed barriers and afforded choices to many who had few options to expand their independence and secure employment.
Moreover, federal and state laws, such as the Older Americans Act, has provided the every growing number of boomers the privilege and responsibility to choose the array of services needed to age in place and direct their retirement years.
Join us in learning more about living a healthy lifestyle, finding and thriving in a safe and secure environment, and garnering credentials and skills to be successful in the new Virginia economy.
Visit our online resources and our field offices across the Commonwealth or make use of the services that we and our many community partners offer.
The Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services looks forward to improving the supports offered to those Virginians who look to us for supports to aid and identify with the lifestyle of their choice.
