Older Americans Act (OAA) services support Vermonters age 60 and older and are designed to help older Vermonters remain as independent as possible and to experience a high quality of life. OAA services are provided through Vermont’s five Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) and include case management; nutrition services and programs; health promotion and disease prevention; information, referral and assistance; legal assistance; and family caregiver support. The Adult Services Division is responsible for monitoring services and funding according to federal requirements in partnership with the Administration on Community Living.
In conjunction with Vermont’s State Plan on Aging, each Area Agency on Aging has developed a four-year Area Plan, outlining goals and objectives for the coordination of services and supports within their service area. Plans have been reviewed and approved by DAIL. A link to the area plans can be found below.
