Support and Services at Home



Support and Services at Home (SASH) coordinates the resources of social service agencies, community health providers and nonprofit housing organizations to help elderly Vermonters and individuals with disabilities live independently at home. Care coordinators and wellness nurses work closely with participants to develop individualized healthy living plans that address unmet medical and social needs, in addition to personal goals. SASH staff also provide wellness check-ins, health coaching for chronic conditions, assistance with medication management, care transitions, help scheduling medical appointments and completing advance directives. Information gathered from participants is pooled to identify common community-wide health issues and inform the planning of evidence-based workshops and community activities. As of 2018, SASH served approximately 5,000 people in the state of Vermont.
