SASH - Free home program for over 65, Medicaid & people with disabilities

The SASH Program is designed to provide personalized coordinated care to help adult participants stay safely at home regardless of their age or residential setting. SASH (Support And Services at Home) is part of the Blueprint for Health, Vermont’s statewide health care reform initiative. SASH helps Vermont’s most vulnerable citizens, seniors and individuals with special needs, access the care and support they need to stay healthy while living comfortably and safely at home. SASH is available in many communities throughout Vermont and serves primarily persons 65 and older and persons with disabilities. Participation is voluntary and free of charge. SASH communities include a care coordinator and wellness nurse who work in partnership with a team of community providers to assist SASH participants.

With the guidance of SASH staff, SASH participants determine their own health and wellness goals.
