Pursuit of Health and Happiness

WHO WE ARE

The Atkinson Residence is a non-profit, licensed Residential Care Home for elders.  Opened in 1963 as an outreach program of the Vermont Conference of the United Church of Christ, the Atkinson accepts residents regardless of religious affiliation.

We strive to create a warm, congenial, family ambiance in a smoke-free, safe, and comfortable environment.  Two common areas, a large dining room, and a three-season porch offer ample space for residents to entertain or relax.  And our lovely grounds and garden invite outdoor activity.

A short walk away is the village store and cafe, post office, library, church, thrift shop, town offices, bank, elementary school, and beautiful common.

Medicare and Medicaid do not cover our services.  Long-term care insurance may cover a portion.  Veterans or surviving spouses may qualify for an assisted living benefit.  And, on occasion, we may be able to provide limited financial assistance to a qualified resident.
