Vermont’s five Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) in partnership with the White River Junction Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) help Veterans to remain in their homes and communities through self-directed services.

The Attendant Services Program (ASP) supports personal care services for adults with a “severe and permanent disability” who need physical assistance with activities of daily living (such as bathing, getting dressed and eating) to remain in their homes. Applicants must be able to direct their own attendant care services. Payroll and employer services occur through a Fiscal Employer Services Agency called ARIS Solution.
