WV Bureau of Senior Services

Welcome to WVSeniorServices.gov

Welcome to the West Virginia Bureau of Senior Services’ Website

The information we offer is tailored to those who are seeking to locate programs and services for themselves or their loved ones and also for professionals who may be looking for up-to-date information relating to the field of aging.

We hope that you find our website easy to navigate and useful. If you have any trouble locating what you are looking for, please let us know — one of our experienced staff is just a phone call or e-mail away.

We are very proud of the senior programs and services that are offered throughout the state of West Virginia — from transportation to meals to exercise classes to in-home services. Our site areas (Getting Answers, Staying Healthy, Help At Home, Staying Safe, Special Events and Document Center) are designed to help you find these programs and services quickly and easily.

As our nation's aging population grows, about 27,000 West Virginia Baby Boomers will turn 60 every year. The Bureau of Senior Services will continue to focus on the changing needs of older West Virginians and to lead the way with programs that promote health, dignity and independence.  

Mission Statement

To be West Virginia’s premier advocate for the provision of in-home and community-based services for the state’s seniors and others served by our programs. To be a faithful steward of the federal and state monies entrusted to our care for the provision of services throughout West Virginia.
