Who is EveryAge?

EveryAge is the new name for United Church Homes and Services (UCHS), a vibrant community of programs and services committed to helping seniors age better, every step of the way. The Home Office is located in Newton, NC and is on the edge of the Abernethy Laurels campus.

Throughout North Carolina and Virginia, EveryAge  operates retirement communities, PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) programs, affordable senior housing communities, and a childcare center collectively employing around 1,000 team members. . For more than 50 years, our organization has evolved to meet the changing needs of our community and the individuals we serve, but our commitment to the founders’ original vision remains true.

The name EveryAge ties directly back to UCHS’s promise to deliver care and compassion to seniors at every stage and every age of their lives. The EveryAge brand also aligns with the organization’s goal of empowering seniors and their families to navigate their futures by providing help and support that evolves with them. Choosing EveryAge for our new brand signifies our strong-held belief that all ages matter and it’s important to make the most out of life, regardless of age.
