Senior Solutions - Council on Aging for Southeastern Vermont

Senior Solutions, the Council on Aging for Southeastern Vermont is one of 

five private, nonprofit area agencies on aging in Vermont. We serve 46 

towns throughout Orange, Windsor, Windham and Bennington counties.  

Under the Older Americans Act, Senior Solutions is charged with helping to 

plan and coordinate a comprehensive system of services and supports for 

older adults (age 60 and over) and family caregivers. We do this with 

community partners such as local senior centers, meal sites, state 

agencies such as the Agency of Human Services, first responder services, 

local hospitals, local food shelves, and others. 

We have 36 employees and over 70 volunteers. Our primary service 

programs are our HelpLine call center, our long-term care and self-neglect 

case management programs, our State Health Insurance program, our 

nutrition programs including financial support for local meal sites, our 

wellness programs, financial support for local transportation services, 

family caregiver supports, mental health support and our robust volunteer 

programs. We also serve as advocates for older adults across 

Southeastern Vermont by partnering with Legal Aid, Adult Protective 

Services, and keeping our legislators informed on local and statewide 

issues affecting older Vermonters. 

At Senior Solutions we strive for a standard of service across all our 

programs that includes humor, grace, outstanding knowledge, and 

reliability. We are staff and volunteers who go above and beyond to assist, 

support, coordinate, and advocate, and to develop and support innovative 

programs that enable older Vermonters to age with dignity in the place of 

their choice, with the support they need and the opportunity for meaningful 

relationships and active engagement in their community.
