Abstract

A large portion of the Franklin County population is elderly and above the age of 60. They have many unique socioeconomic barriers to healthcare that add to the difficulty of maintaining independence in the community. This has been a burdensome public health cost for not only this community but for Vermont as a whole. The goal of this project was to inform local seniors of services provided by Age Well VT that could enable them to stay at home for longer. This was carried out by designing an Age Well VT handout that could be easily read and utilized by elderly patients at the Fairfield Street Health Center.
