Heart Pillows

The Caregivers Community Network is a collaborative effort between Valley Program for Aging Services (VPAS) and James Madison University's Institute for Innovation in Health and Human Services.  The goal of this program is to provide respite to caregivers of those who are 60 years old and older. JMU students are trained to offer this service and make weekly visits throughout the semester.  They earn college credit for their hours of volunteer service!  The course listing is IPE 490.  This program recently received Second Place Best Practices Award 2018 from the Commonwealth Council on Aging.
