The goal of Caledonia Home Health Care & Hospice’s long-term care program is to help participants maintain independence in the setting they prefer, to enhance the quality of life for both the client and the caregiver, and to acknowledge and value the contribution of each family member.
Our staff provides assistance with activities of daily living such as housekeeping, meal preparation, companionship and respite services to enable both client and caregiver to remain an integrated, active, and vital part of their community.
To be eligible for these services, you must be eligible for Medicaid. If you are not eligible for Medicaid, you may pay privately for services. Please visit our Private Duty section to learn more.
If you are unsure whether you qualify for Medicaid, please call us at (802)748-8116.

The Blueprint for Health is organized around a medical home model through which coordinated care is provided by an interdisciplinary community health team (CHT) that supports the patient’s primary care physician (PCP).

VNA life skills aides are assigned to retrain the person in activities of daily living, provide vocational rehabilitation and assist in all aspects of independent living.
