Resources and programs are available to help older Vermonters find services and support to live longer, healthier lives.

Information for You

From trained medical professionals who respond daily, to citizen volunteers who step up during natural disasters, Vermonters like you make all the difference in our communities' health, safety and preparedness.

Many Vermonters are affected by falls at some point in their life. People who are 65 years and older are increasingly at risk of falling, and therefore potentially injury. As we age, we are more likely to be injured in a fall.

Suicide touches the lives of many Vermonters. Our intentional self-harm and death by suicide rates are significantly higher than the United States rates. Find help, learn about warning, signs, risk and protective factors. Read about what Vermont is doing to prevent suicide.

 

Act now to prepare for any emergency – flooding, an ice storm, power outage, flu pandemic or disease outbreak. You may need to evacuate or stay where you are to keep safe.

Everyone six months and older should get a flu shot every flu season. Getting the flu shot helps protect you, your family and your community. Get information about the vaccine, where to get vaccinated, and information on the effectiveness of the flu vaccine.

You First can pay for services like breast cancer screenings, cervical cancer screenings, heart health screenings and lifestyle programs.
