Choices for Care is a Medicaid-funded, long-term care program to pay for care and support for older Vermonters and people with physical disabilities. The program assists people with everyday activities at home, in an enhanced residential care setting, or in a nursing facility.
Support includes hands-on assistance with eating, bathing, toilet use, dressing, and transferring from bed to chair; assistance with tasks such as meal preparation, household chores, and medication management and increasing or maintaining independence.
A second program is for Moderate Needs individuals who need minimal assistance to remain at home. This program offers limited case management, adult day services, and/or homemaker service.
