No Wrong Door is an effort to streamline access to services and support options with the goal of reducing the need for individuals to contact multiple agencies to get the assistance they need, when they need it. This includes making assistive technology available to all populations, including older adults.
The Vermont Assistive Technology Program (VT AT Program) partners with Vermont’s five Area Agencies on Aging programs throughout Vermont to help older adults successfully engage in life using assistive technology.
