Long Term Care

Traumatic Brain Injury Program

In 1991, the Department of Aging and Disabilities and the Department of Social Welfare began the operation of a three-year pilot project offering community-based rehabilitative services. The goal of this program was to divert people from facility placement and/or return Vermonters with a moderate to severe traumatic brain injury from out-of-state facilities. Prior to the development of this service, people were placed in expensive out of state facilities, often there for years, with little hope of returning to their home communities.

Choices for Care Program

Choices for Care (High/Highest) provides a package of long-term services and supports to Vermonters who are age 18 years and over and need nursing home level of care. People who need nursing home level of care typically require extensive or total assistance on a daily basis with personal care. Eligible people choose where to receive their services: in their home, in their family’s home, an Adult Family Care home, Enhanced Residential Care or nursing facility. People must meet a clinical and financial eligibility for long-term care Medicaid in Vermont.
