We Want Your Feedback-What Aging Issues are Important to You?

Vermont is developing the next State Plan on Aging, a guiding document that outlines how the State of Vermont and the network of Agencies on Aging and service providers will strive to meet the changing needs of older Vermonters over time.
As Vermont’s population grows older, how we are aging is evolving, and the needs and desires of the Baby Boomer generation are different than those before them. With advances in medicine, higher rates of education, and improvements in housing and public health among other factors, we are living longer, with average life expectancy now 80.5 in Vermont, and many living well into their 80s and 90s.
A cohort of older Vermonters have multiple chronic conditions and complex medical needs and will likely need significant supports from family caregivers and long-term care programs; and a growing cohort of Vermonters are aging in good health, physically and mentally active, working longer, and seeking engagement with the world long after so-called retirement.

No matter where we are on the spectrum of aging, how can we make Vermont a place where everyone can truly age well? You may read the assessment by clicking here-- Assessment Executive Summary.
