Nothing is more important than our happiness and sense of well-being, particularly as we grow older. Dr. Clara Gary, Montpelier’s first woman doctor, understood this very well when in 1941 she founded The Gary Residence — a pleasant, comfortable residence in the heart of downtown Montpelier. Since then, the Gary Residence has been a uniquely beautiful home for scores of seniors over 62.
Carefully renovated and tastefully decorated, The Gary Residence is only a short walk from the famous golden-domed Capitol, libraries, churches, restaurants and shops. Our property is enhanced by beautiful landscaping, paved walkways, a patio and gazebo, and colorful flower gardens.
Life here incorporates the most important and comforting elements of living in one’s own home. Our residents have their own suites, each with private bath. They enjoy nourishing meals prepared and served by caring staff, and elegant common areas that include a sunroom and library. Amenities and activities are plentiful here, allowing residents to continue enjoying active, productive, and meaningful lives.
The Gary Residence is not a nursing home. Our residents enjoy the security of 24-hour staff assistance. As a licensed residential care home, we provide room and board, help with personal care, nursing oversight and medication management, but not full-time nursing care.
