The Prince William County AAA is responsible for the assessment stage of various state-funded benefits and services, and staff members are experts in aging-related issues at the local level. AAAs also provide services mandated by the Older Americans Act, such as transportation, nutrition and elder justice.
The senior center in Woodbridge is one of two such facilities in the county, with the other located in Manassas. Residents are welcome to join for $25 per year or pay the daily drop-in rate of $2. Members can take part in health and wellness programs, including one-on-one nutrition counseling from a registered dietitian, and senior-friendly exercise programs. AAA staff frequently visit these senior centers, which makes them ideal meeting points for seniors and caregivers with questions about local services.
Woodbridge and Prince William County residents can apply for state benefits online or by calling to request a mail-in form. In-person applications can be made at the DSS office located in the Dr. A.J Ferlazzo Building in Woodbridge.
