AGING & DISABILITIES
Vermont’s Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is a trusted place in the community where people of all ages and incomes can turn for information about a full range of long term support options. The Center serves as a single point of entry for access to public long term support programs and benefits.
The Vermont Aging and Disability Resource Connection is a collaboration of non-profit organizations that provide comprehensive and objective information and options counseling to Vermonters seeking services, benefits or information related to long-term care services and supports for aging, disability and independent living. By connecting with a ADRC partner agency, Vermonters have the ability to make informed decisions to live with independence and dignity in their chosen communities for as long as possible, with the types of supports and services they choose.
The ADRC wants all seniors, persons with disabilities, Veterans, the Deaf, and family and chosen caregivers, to have easy access to the support they need; it provides access to an integrated statewide system of information and assistance, options counseling, care transitions and streamlined access to long term services:
Age Well: offers guidance, services and information – from meals to full service case management – to seniors and caregivers, regardless of financial status. Serves Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, and Addison Counties, with the exception of Granville and Hancock in Addison County.
Vermont Center for Independent Living: empowers Vermonters with disabilities, Deaf Vermonters and others to tear down the physical, communication, and attitudinal barriers that keep us from realizing our full human potential.
Vermont 2-1-1: a statewide information and referral service reachable online at vermont211.org or by calling 2-1-1 from anywhere in Vermont.
