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.

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.

Attendant Services Program

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.

Aging & Disability Resource Connections-No Wrong Door

Vermont’s Aging Disabilities Resource Connections (ADRC) initiative provides people of all ages, disabilities, and incomes with the information and support they need to make informed decisions about long term services and supports.  ADRC builds on the infrastructure of eight ‘core partners’. These core partners include the five Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), the Vermont Center for Independent Living (VCIL), the Brain Injury Association of Vermont (BIAVT), and Vermont 211.

SAMS Database

The Adult Services Division currently uses the online SAMS database to manage participant information, data and service authorizations. Choices for Care case management agencies and Area Agencies on Aging that deliver Older American's Act services, are mandated users of SAMS.
