History
Our organization was first incorporated in 1985 as Senior Services of Southeastern Vermont, and received 501(c)(3) exempt status in 1986. The name was changed to Council on Aging for Southeastern Vermont, Inc. (COASEV) in 1991. For some years  COASEV operated case management services, ” Access for the Elderly,” as part of the Windham Regional Commission. In 1996 COASEV became independent from the Regional Commission. In July 2011, we registered the trade name Senior Solutions.
