Support And Services at Home (SASH) coordinates the resources of social service agencies, community health providers and nonprofit housing organizations to support Vermonters who choose to live independently at home. Individualized, on-site support is provided by a Wellness Nurse and a trained SASH Care Coordinator.
At its core, SASH is really about the everyday interactions, actions, planning and brainstorming ideas between members of the SASH team (which includes the SASH participant) that creates a seamless system of care that has shown significant positive outcomes for individuals’ ability to remain at home.
SASH serves seniors and individuals with special needs who receive Medicare support and who live in congregate housing – or the surrounding community. Today, SASH touches the lives of approximately 5,000 people across the state of Vermont. (Read the SASH Notice of Privacy Practices here.)
