Ranking The Best Vermont Senior Living Facilities

We evaluate each retirement center based on affordability, online reviews, any record of state violations reported by the Vermont State Department of Health, and amenities provided that are essential to improving a resident’s quality of life. People using our site to research senior living campuses in Vermont love the idea of having comprehensive information in one place. Who has time to click through hundreds of reviews that often do not provide accurate, objective overviews of different senior communities? There is much more to finding the perfect retirement housing for loved ones than a stranger’s review.

The average cost of assisted living in Vermont is around $4000. This monthly expense includes housing, meals, basic amenities, and services like laundry and housekeeping. Places that offer additional medical and supportive care such as memory care or nursing homes will naturally have higher monthly costs. However, the communities listed in our senior living directory are competitive in regards to the average monthly costs of most Vermont senior facilities.

the village at white river junction vt

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Village at White River Junction:

My parents aren’t staying at The Village, yet, but we have visited twice, had lunch there and the Grand Tour. Everyone there is incredibly friendly and very very helpful, answering questions and being reassuring. The place is absolutely lovely … not at all like most stuffy assisted living places we have looked at. It is bright, cheerful and modern, and they have really thought of everything a resident might require to live a fulfilling life in residence. The facilities are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its location right in the center of White River Junction is also a major bonus. I cant wait until I am at the time of life to move in there myself!

the residence at quarry hill south burlington vt

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Residence at Quarry Hill:

The Reflections Memory Care neighborhood has been a game changer for my mother. She was an assisted living resident at Quarry Hill for 2 years and both of us were happy with the staff, from the caregivers to the front desk to the dining room. Because of recent changes in her medical condition, the dedicated Quarry Hill nurses thankfully suggested that she might benefit from a move to Reflections. She is much more comfortable in the smaller space, is actively participating in activities and is eating better. A big thank you to the Director, the nurse and attentive staff in the Reflections unit .

maple ridge memory care essex junction vt

What residents and loved ones have to say about Maple Ridge Memory Care:

For two years, my mom lived at Maple Ridge. Much of the staff became her extended family. She bonded with several and for that Ill be forever grateful. Even during the stress of the pandemic, the staff have been kind and patient, and I know my mom proved challenging from time to time. Trust in Maple Ridge to treat your loved one like a cherished family member. They excel at it. I also had the experience of encountering a former staff member during an appointment with my mom at the hospital. My mom had a bit of a meltdown. The skills the med technician gained at Maple Ridge helped diffuse the meltdown so that the appointment went on without issue.
