What is SASH?
The SASH Program is designed to provide personalized coordinated care to help adult participants stay safely at home. The SASH (Support And Services at Home) model is part of the Blueprint for Health, Vermont’s statewide health care reform initiative.
SASH helps Vermont’s seniors and individuals with special needs access the care and support they need to stay healthy while living comfortably and safely at home. SASH is available in many communities throughout Vermont and serves primarily persons 65 and older and persons with disabilities. Participation is voluntary and free of charge. SASH communities include a care coordinator and wellness nurse who work in partnership with a team of community providers to assist SASH participants.
“Through the SASH program, housing, health and service providers are finally able to collaborate fully. This greatly benefits our residents in providing effective support in their efforts to maintain health and live in their homes.”
