LOA’s Center for Health and Wellness opened in 2022, providing a much-needed new space next to our main office in Roanoke. The Center is the hub of LOA’s Nutrition Programs and the home of healthy aging activities and events. The building houses the headquarters for the Northwest Roanoke Meals on Wheels site, the Star City Diners Club, and LOA’s Nutrition Programs offices.

Healthy Aging Activities

A certified Community Health Worker, along with our Elder Rights staff, are coordinating regular events at the Center designed to address the physical, mental, and social wellbeing of the older population, including

Lunch & Learn

Our Lunch & Learn events will be held the third Friday of each month (excluding June). Topics will include Arthritis, Stroke Awareness, Falls Prevention, and other health challenges. Limited seating is available for these events, so sign up early! Watch our Events webpage for more activities to come at the Center for Health and Wellness!

We need your support

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to pay for renovations to the Center and ensure program sustainability by freeing up future funds to be devoted to programs and services.

As the older population in our area grows, LOA is also growing to provide the critically needed services for healthy aging. During the next 10 years, 85% of our region’s population growth is projected to take place in the 65+ age group.

Your gift to the LOA Center for Health and Wellness will ensure that programming and services vital to our older population will continue. Thank you for your commitment and support of older adults in our region!
