Who attends the program at ACCRV?
The Adult Care Center of Roanoke Valley (ACCRV) is an excellent alternative for your loved one who is unable to remain at home or needs socialization and stimulation during the day. Work schedules and other family responsibilities often make it impossible for you to stay at home and provide necessary care. Our program can delay the institutionalization of your loved one who may have one or multiple disabilities that require professional care and supervision. Caregivers who work are allowed the opportunity to fulfill their responsibilities to their employers and not worry about leaving their family member at home unattended. Caregivers who are not employed outside of the home are provided needed respite from the rigors of providing 24 hour per day care. The participants who attend the centers vary widely in age, physical, mental and social needs. Services are provided to adults, 21 years of age or over, with most of our participants at age 65 or over. Activities are adapted to meet these individual needs.

What is the history of ACCRV?
In 1983, a group of Kiwanis recognized a need for elder care that allowed the family unit to be preserved.
An adult care center that would allow the families to leave their loved one in a safe, comfortable and nurturing environment during the day. In the evening, they could both return home. The family could remain together, at home, just as they would like it to be.
The first adult care center was established in a Salvation Army Building. Later the service evolved to a church location on Williamson Road.
The ACCRV has been in operation for 27 years in the Roanoke region. The ACCRV provides one monthly caregiver support group in association with the Alzheimers Association. In addition, the center is licensed by the Virginia Dept. of Social Services and maintains close contact with the Veterans Administration, LOA and Medicaid.
