In 1974, the State of Vermont designated Age Well as the Area Agency on Aging for Addison, Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties in Northwestern Vermont. We carry out programs authorized by the Older Americans Act - federal legislation that calls for local organizations to take the lead in creating a coordinated system of services for older persons across the country.
As the leading experts and advocates for the aging population, we believe that health happens at home and focus on lifestyle, happiness and wellness—not on age. We have provided Vermonters with the necessary support to manage their daily living needs, with the goal of keeping them active, healthy and independent. Our wide array of programs enhance the quality of life and improve health outcomes.
Committed to helping individuals age well, we reduce barriers by providing access to healthy meals, in-home care and community resources. Delivered by staff members and over 1,000 incredible volunteers, our sought-after services are designed to meet the diverse needs of our clients, their families and caregivers. We do not charge for services provided. As a nonprofit, we rely on donations and encourage clients to contribute if they are able to do so.
