Aging Well Support Program

Aging Well Support Program



The Aging Well Support Program is a collaboration between Appalachian State’s Blue Cross NC Institute for Health and Human Services and the High Country Area Agency on Aging, along with numerous other community collaborators for various projects. Our goal is to work with other community partners to support healthy aging in adults throughout the High Country. To do this, we offer Community Health Screenings, Caregiver Workshops, and programs to support mental and physical wellness. In addition, we offer Individualized Aging Support Services to provide ongoing Care Coordination for concerns related to memory, fall risk, nutrition, and behavioral health. Please read more about each offering on this site and call 828-262-8658 or email for more information.
