JABA (Jefferson Area Board for Aging) is the Area Agency on Aging which serves the city of Charlottesville Virginia and the counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louise, and Nelson. JABA is committed to promoting, creating and maintaining sustainable communities that place emphasis on healthy aging and benefit both individuals and families. They believe that a community is strongest when it ages together; this is because the community plans for growth, promotes local food and products, and collaborates to make the best use of those resources.
JABA’s mission is to ensure that individuals and families live better. They do this by helping promote healthy aging with services ranging from Mountainside Senior Living (an assisted living community), to home delivered meals, assistance with care transitions, caregiver support groups, and insurance counselling. JABA’s community and adult care centers promote fun and fellowship, in the hopes of fostering a sense of community for all participants.
