Vermont Senior Solutions to Offer an Introduction to Services and Resources, and Answer Your Questions

On Saturday April 22nd, 2017 there will be a free presentation by Senior Solutions at The Plymouth Community Center at 11 am.

Senior Solutions is one of five Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) in Vermont.

The five Area Agencies on Aging work together to provide a consistent package of services statewide. The mission of Senior Solutions is to assist older Vermonters to achieve an optimum quality of life, individually and in their communities, through:

1) advocacy

2) information and access to resources, and

3) by supporting and working with their families and those close to them.

Their agency goals are:

  • Empower older Vermonters, their families and caregivers to make informed decisions about and be able to easily access existing health and long term care options.
  • Enable older Vermonters to remain in a setting of their choice for as long as possible through the provision of home and community based programs including support for family caregivers.
  • Empower older Vermonters to remain active and healthy through wellness programs including Evidence Based Prevention Programs.
  • Ensure the rights of older Vermonters and prevent their abuse, neglect and exploitation.
