Lessons Learned: Area Agency on Aging Network COVID-19 Response: Throughout the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, Virginia’s 25 area agencies on aging (AAAs) are supporting, assisting, and engaging with the Commonwealth’s older adults as they stay at home.

Person-centered practice is the very foundation of NWD and involves supporting individuals’ self-determination and independence by engaging them in defining their own needs and services. Focused on determining what is important to individuals, the person-centered counselor works to ensure individuals are connected to services to meet these important desires, while simultaneously working to ensure health and safety needs are met.
