There are currently 21,000 people 60 years and older in Waynesboro, Staunton and Augusta County-- and those numbers are expected to rise.
The Virginia General Assembly recently passed legislation requiring local governments to address long-term care issues for residents.
Tuesday night, Waynesboro City Council voted to appoint the Valley Program for Aging Services as the lead agency to coordinate the localities long-term care.
Jennifer Chestnut with The Valley Program for Aging Services tells News 3 the goal for the future is to keep folks active and at home for as long as possible.
