United Way seeks input from older adults about wellness

United Way of Chittenden County and a group of community partners are inviting residents countywide, aged 60 and over, to participate in a survey on the unique services and activities that help them stay healthy and feel good. The survey will gather information about what types of services older adults want, where they want to receive them and how they want to hear about them.

As part of a focus on health, United Way of Chittenden County works to ensure that all people have access to the supports and care they need for optimal health and well-being. “We want to hear from a broad range of older adults about what they need and want. Based on the survey data, we will identify areas where more information is needed,” said United Way Community Impact Manager Diana Carminati. “Following the survey, we will host small group discussions about how Chittenden County could better meet the unique needs of our residents as they age.”

The brief survey can be completed online at or a printed survey can be requested by calling 802-860-1677. All survey responses are anonymous and individual information is confidential.
