Vermont Family Caregivers Guide to Remote Support

“November is National Family Caregivers Month, an opportunity to honor family caregivers as the backbone of our home and community-based support system for Vermonters who are aging or living with a disability. According to the National Center on Caregiving, more than 40 million Americans, including 64,000 Vermonters, provide care for a loved one who has a disability, is chronically ill, or is aging, and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care.  DAIL has compiled this handout of some remote caregiver support options available in Vermont in order to help family caregivers access supports they may need during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.”

Vermont Aging & Disabilities Resource Connections (ADRC) - No Wrong Door

The Vermont ADRC partners provide information, referrals and options counseling to help Vermonters make informed decisions about services to help them live with dignity and respect in the setting that they choose. The ADRC also provides valuable information and resources to people looking for respite and family caregiver support.
