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

Information for You

Find out about who may be at more risk for severe illness, or more vulnerable to getting sick. Learn about precautions.

Use the "Ask the Chat Bot" feature to find answers to your questions about COVID-19, and see responses to what other Vermonters are asking.

The Health Department works closely with the Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living and long-term care facilities to help them prepare for cases of COVID-19.

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.

COVID-19 is a new disease, caused by a virus not previously seen in humans. COVID-19 is highly contagious. People with COVID-19 who don't have any symptoms can spread the virus to other people. Learn about symptoms and what to do if you are sick.

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.
