What is Long-Term Care?
We provide personal care and homemaking services for Medicaid-eligible central Vermonters who would like to remain in their own homes and communities and need a little extra help with bathing, dressing, walking and preparing meals. Our Long Term Care services will help you, or a loved one, live safely and independently at home for as long as possible.
