Caring for our Elders

We believe everyone deserves to grow old with dignity, respect, and a sense of community.

Vermont’s median age is nearly 5 years older than the rest of the nation’s. In Addison County, our seniors often feel disconnected from the community’s they once actively participated in because of health and/or transportation challenges. Many elders face depression, loss of purpose, and loneliness.

OUR SOLUTION:

  • Supporting top quality in-home nursing care to reduce hospital visits and encourage healthy independent living
  • Ensuring seniors living in every part of the County receive a warm, healthy meal every day
  • Providing transportation and access to adult daycare programs that offer physical activities, meals, lifelong learning opportunities and intergenerational connections
  • Investing in compassionate end of life programs for every person in Addison County nearing death or the death of a loved one
