Aging with Options™

Ensuring All Americans Have Choices about Where and How They Age


Our nation is on the cusp of one of the most dramatic demographic shifts in its history as a projected 71.5 million people will be age 65 or older by the year 2030. The demands this will place on our country’s current system of providing elder care are daunting and the time to prepare is now. Currently, our nation’s ability to care for the aged is at a tipping point. The systems in place cannot adequately support the ever-increasing number of older Americans.

Volunteers of America recognizes that aging is for many a complex and fearful unknown. We want to help older Americans celebrate the joy of living by creating a sustained, trusted relationship with support systems that allow them to age at home―wherever that may be. We will change the aging experience through our most aggressive initiative to date―Aging with Options™.

Volunteers of America has spent more than a century anticipating and adapting to the needs of this country. We are confident that our national presence and elder care expertise will place us at the forefront of aging services.

We are:
  • one of the largest nonprofit providers of affordable housing in the United States 
  • the fourth largest nonprofit provider of nursing care 
  • the sixth largest nonprofit provider of assisted living facilities
With our local offices across the U.S. offering services for seniors, we are introducing a pragmatic and sustainable response to a tremendous challenge that will not only support older Americans, but their caregivers as well. As a trusted guide and service provider, we offer an integrated care and support system for older Americans and their communities.

Our vision is a nation in which everyone can choose to age how and where they most want to be―at home.
