Who are we?

Vermont Comforts of Home program is jointly operated by two Vermont Organizations: Lincoln Street Inc. and Upper Valley Services. We are experienced in the quality provision of individualized home care. We offer support to individuals who qualify for a nursing home level of care. Our goal is to provide a choice when, due to medical and personal care needs, a person can no longer live at home without support. Our experience has demonstrated most individuals can continue to live in a home environment with appropriate care.

We have been leaders in the field, providing high quality community residential support to individuals with disabilities for the past 40 years. We have now expanded this expertise and created Vermont Comforts of Home to include older Vermonters and others requiring nursing home level of care.

What are our values?

We are committed to the belief that all people, regardless of their age or care needs, should have a voice in how they are supported and where they live. We ensure that all services are individualized to meet the specifics needs of those we support.

What services do we provide?

  • Care coordination: We develop an individualized plan of care that addresses specific care needs, medication requirements, support and oversight of residential services.
  • ​Residential support: We contract with skilled providers in the community who share their home and provide individualized care.
  • Safety: The safety of those we support is of the utmost importance to us. A thorough background screening is completed on all providers as well as a home safety inspection.

Vermont Comforts of Home operates in compliance with the regulations of the Adult Family Care program under Vermont’s Choices for Care initiative. We serve those who qualify for Medicaid and those interested in a private pay option.
