Vt. seniors needed for survey on aging
VERMONT — The Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) is conducting a survey to better understand the needs of older Vermonters and the services and resources available to them. The results from this survey will help DAIL to develop Vermont’s next State Plan on Aging, a guiding document that outlines how the state of Vermont and the network of Agencies on Aging and service providers will strive to meet the needs of older Vermonters over time.
If you live in Vermont and are age 60 or older, you are invited to take a few minutes to complete the survey. It can be found online at surveymonkey.com/r/AgingWellVT.
If you would prefer a hard copy of the survey, contact Dr. Kelly Melekis at (802) 448-0928 or [email protected] and a survey can be mailed to you at the address you provide.
The deadline to complete the survey is Oct. 1.
Survey participants also have the option to participate in a raffle for one of four $50 gift cards (your choice of Amazon, Home Depot, CVS, or Shaw’s).
“We know that Vermonters want to age well, and what you need to do that changes over time,” says DAIL Commissioner Monica Caserta Hutt. “Let us know what’s working — and what we could be doing differently — in terms of meeting our mission to make Vermont the best state in which to grow old or to live with a disability — with dignity, respect, and independence. We value and appreciate your input.”
