At JABA, our mission is to ensure that individuals and families live better. We believe that living as part of a community promotes healthy aging, so all JABA owned and run living options promote a sense of community. Whether you are seeking independent living or living with assistance, JABA continues to establish and preserve affordable living communities that increase options for living better.

Living as an elder should be an enjoyable part of your life. Why not enjoy yourself as part of a community that learns, plays and works together? At JABA, we have designed our Community Centers and our Adult Care Centers to promote fun and fellowship.

Jefferson School City Center


JABA is all about lending support to seniors in need of assistance. Whether that includes basic information, case management, insurance counseling, home delivered meals — or any of the many other available services — we want you to think of JABA as a source of support for you or your loved ones. Most of our support is offered as a gift to those who cannot pay. See individual programs for more details.

JABA is able to do all that it does because of generous volunteers and donors. We value contributions of time as well as dollars and promise to put your talents and your donations to very good use.

In the past five years, government funding has diminished. Luckily, individual and corporate contributions have begun to rise. Your assistance is greatly appreciated and needed.

Volunteer Opportunities


What’s good for us as we age is good for our entire community — from planning for neighborhood growth, to promoting local foods and collaborating for the best use of resources. This is the philosophy behind JABA’s mission, “to promote, establish and preserve sustainable communities for healthy aging that benefit individuals and families of all ages.”

Nursing Homes

Nursing homes are health care facilities where nursing services are provided on a continuous basis. The services provided in a nursing facility include skilled nursing care and related services; rehabilitation services for injured, disabled or sick persons; and health related care and services. Many, but not all, nursing homes also provide care for residents with dementia. General nursing care or intermediate care includes assistance with bathing, dressing and eating; preparation of special diets; administration of medicines; application of surgical dressings; and the administration of care and treatments prescribed by a physician. Medicare can help pay for a stay in a skilled nursing facility.

Although JABA does not own and manage any nursing homes, we encourage you to use the directory found in the Easy Access site, which provides information about nursing homes throughout Virginia.

JABA provides a long-term care advocacy to residents at all area nursing homes through its Long-Term Care Ombudsman program and its Volunteer Ombudsmen program.

If you need further information to help you in your search for the right facility for your loved one, please call JABA at 434-817-5222 and ask to speak with the JABA Information and Referral Specialist.
