Abstract

Vermont's elderly population (>65 years old) is growing rapidly- by 2032, almost 25% of the VT population will be >65. 90% of seniors in VT wish to age in place in their homes. Healthcare providers in VT could play an integral role in connecting seniors who are looking to remain active and involved in their community to resources. Older adults who are connected have a higher level of functional health and increased life satisfaction. Goal was to create a pamphlet highlighting services and activities that can fulfill three meaningful areas of VT senior's lives to help them to continue leading healthy, independent lives. Three areas including: wellness, social enrichment and volunteering.
