For faithful Christian looking for the comfortable support of a Christian assisted living facility, Vermont is a great place to explore. There are many really wonderful senior-living homes in this state, from large resort-style setting, to small homes that look and feel like the homes many seniors will be coming from. It makes for a very interesting mix where almost every senior will find an assisted living center they will be very happy to call home.
For example, Advent Christian Retirement Community offers two Christian assisted living facilities in the state, and one more in neighboring Maine. These are fairly large centers, set in park-like properties, with space for approximately 40 seniors each. They are large enough to offer lots of variety but not so big that seniors could wind up getting lost.
For something that feels more like a pleasant home, seniors can explore Valley Terrace or Equinox Terrace; two great examples of smaller care centers. These are not too different from the homes many seniors will be transitioning from, and that makes the whole process much less stressful.

Amenities in Christian Assisted Living Communities in Vermont
Being a faithful Christian isn’t a passive way of life. It isn’t just attending a weekly prayer service or taking part in a pot luck dinner or fish fry. It is a commitment to a way of life that is focused on building a personal relationship with God, and to reach that goal, there is study, there is prayer, and there is an unfaltering commitment to helping everyone else attain their own personal relationship with God.
Christian assisted living facilities are unique, in that they deliver care that is as much spiritual as it is physical, and they do this by building a home that is supported by the following four cornerstones.
Christian Retirement Communities in Vermont - Religious Amenities
- The first cornerstone is the chapel, and in Christian assisted living facilities this precious space plays the same important role that the church plays in a Christian community. It is the center of the faith; it’s beating heart, where the fateful congregate, worship, and stand shoulder to shoulder in support of each other. It’s also an active space of learning and a tranquil escape any time any member of the community feels the need to sit a talk with God.
- The second cornerstone is the pastor that leads every faithful Christian community. Christian assisted living facilities will often have a fulltime pastor or chaplain, or at least someone that is on call 24/7, and they do far more than just offering weekly services. They are there to guide and teach, to support and encourage, and to help every senior lead a faithful life that allows them to abandon worry and stay focused on all that is good.
- The third cornerstone is the team that delivers care in the Christian assisted living facilities. Considering the highly personal nature of the care they will provide; these professionals need more than just training in the mechanics of care. They need to apply the basic tenets of faith, compassions, respect and patience so seniors are better able to accept and benefit from the care they will provide. In Christian assisted living facilities, it may be more likely to0 find this level of care.
- The fourth cornerstone involves Christian activities that help support each senior as they journey toward a stronger personal relationship with God. These will include bible studies, prayer meetings, community programs and various opportunities to participate in volunteer programs that help each senior give back and remain connected, with the Christian faith and their Christian community.
Christian Assisted Living in Vermont - General Amenities
Helping seniors stay on the right path are the caregivers and the Assisted Daily Living care, (ADL’s), they provide. It starts with helping seniors stay confidently mobile. Then there is direct help with bathing, dressing and grooming. There may be help using the toilet or at least providing remainder that help counter the effects of incontinence.

There are illnesses that require more that these basics. This is especially true for those dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. For these seniors, there is memory care that brings some special protections and therapies to each of them. The protection comes in the form of more secure spaces that will help keep these seniors from wandering into trouble. The therapies will help them reconnect with lost memories through the use of things like music, scents, and pets. Together, this memory care helps these seniors reconnect and stay connected in more meaningful ways.
Everyone enjoys three meals a day, and these are nothing like hospital food or cafeteria fare. These are professionally prepared dishes, drawn from menus that are chock full of favorites. The overall meal plan is nutritionally balanced and augmented by healthy all-day snacks.
Apartments in assisted living communities provide seniors with their own personal space, with various designs and sizes to choose from. Most assisted living facilities will offer studio suites and one-bedroom apartments. Most will also offer semi-private suites that help tight budgets stretch further. In a few instances, there are two-bedroom apartments as well. These are designed to be share by a couple of family members or close companions, where each has their own bedroom and some shared living space, and this help both save, compared to the cost of two one-bedroom apartments.
