Vermont Assisted Living Directory

About the facility:

For those of you who don’t know much about this lovely little state in the Northern US, you’ll find it is the second least populated state, coming in just after Wyoming. Unlike Wyoming, however, it is an extremely small state, and is right on the border of eastern Canada. It’s northern location makes it a state of beautiful territory, covered in trees and interesting topography. It is also one of the first states to become a part of the US, meaning it is also full of beautiful historic buildings and memorable landmarks.

 

Vermont has a humid continental climate, with some of the coldest winters in the united states. For some this may sound unappealing, but for those who idealize staying indoors in front of a roaring fire with a good book and a cup of hot tea, it might just be a dream come true. There is variation in Vermont’s weather however- unlike some states- and the summers can bring a nice change with warmer temperatures. And the fall brings those beautiful cascades of color as the leaves turn different shades.

 

If your loved one prefers living in less populated, forested areas, then Vermont might be just the place for them. However, perhaps because Vermont is less populated, the average cost of assisted living is much higher than the national average. While the US has an average cost of around 3,700, Vermont comes in at nearly 1,000 more than that per month. Still, if money is less of an object for you than you loved one’s preferences in this new season of life, Vermont is an excellent option.

Besides the prices of facilities found in Vermont , it’s also very important to research the facilities you’re interested in, making sure they are properly licensed and have no complaints filed against them. While facilities may look appealing online, it is always important to do your own research on various sites, as well as visit any facilities you’re most interested in yourself. There are also government sites that explain the state’s assisted living regulations, and even offer lists of facilities that have had complaints filed against them.
