Introducing three of Windham and Windsor County’s Senior Center Directors to talk about how they weathered the Covid-19 pandemic shut-downs and what plans they have for re-opening and welcoming aging Vermonters back to in-person activities at the centers.

Senior Solutions’ Spring Auction to benefit the agency’s Home Visitor programs raised $1,889.

The COVID Support VT grant-funded program, with the goal of providing mental health and wellness support for all Vermonters in response to the pandemic, has been extended for an additional six months. This means we can continue to offer services free of charge through mid-December.
