Though it is never easy acknowledging that you or a loved one need support to get through the day, you can have peace of mind knowing there is a uniquely charming and attentive assisted living community in the heart of Vermont.
Nestled away on 37 acres at the base of East Mountain in Rutland, The Meadows offers senior adults the comforts of home and around-the-clock services that can help them maintain an engaging and healthy lifestyle. We work closely with residents and their families to provide the optimal level of care needed to age both safely and gracefully.
The Meadows is small and intimate—a place where residents can enjoy the privacy they desire while also sharing common interests with friends. We are a community where independence and personal choice are fostered. From deciding what to eat in our beautifully appointed dining room to choosing which social and wellness activities to attend, residents have many opportunities to direct how their day will unfold.
The Meadows was thoughtfully designed to replicate the most appealing features found in a private residence: Attractive furnishings and artwork, carpeted rooms and hallways, warm lighting, an abundance of windows, comfortable spaces to meet and relax, an expansive library of books, a cozy fireplace, and beautiful gardens.
Residents’ rooms are spacious and light-filled, and each has a private bathroom. Rooms are available furnished or unfurnished to allow residents to decorate their living space with his or her cherished belongings.
It is rare to hear our residents say that there is nothing to do at The Meadows! From exercise classes to musical performances, luncheon outings to literature readings, book club to a homemade pie social—each day there are many opportunities for residents to keep active and connect with others.
With our friendly staff providing the everyday assistance and services seniors often need, we make it easy for our residents to focus their energies on enjoying life. Our goal is to make living here as worry-free as possible.

Visitors to The Meadows’ beautiful, 37-acre property would frequently express how they wished they could live in a worry-free community like The Meadows—but that they did not need the hands-on care associated with an assisted living facility. They were seeking an independent living community that would take away the burdens of home ownership, provide services in the areas of dining, housekeeping, maintenance, transportation and wellness, and increase their socialization.
