Mission & Vision
To provide the support and guidance that inspires our community to embrace aging with confidence.
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. In 2017, we changed our name from Champlain Valley Agency on Aging (CVAA) to Age Well to better reflect all the work we do.
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.
Age Well’s Diversity Statement
At Age Well, we are committed to serving all older Vermonters, their families and caregivers regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, race, religion, education, or financial status. We believe that demonstrating inclusiveness creates a healthy, positive, and collaborative community.
Age Well stands with communities across Vermont who are impacted by discriminatory social biases. Age Well’s mission emphasizes diversity, inclusion and equity as critical components to ensure the well-being of our staff, clients, volunteers and those we serve.
