The Arbors at Shelburne in Shelburne, VT is a vibrant and compassionate residential community with an innovative Mind & Memory program for seniors with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. Led by a Certified Dementia Practitioner, this specialized form of assisted living combines personal care assistance and innovative medication management with dedicated programs and dignified dining for life enrichment.
Our staff provides specialized care to seniors with dementia. We know the complexity of Alzheimer’s and how it impacts your loved one—and you. It’s an emotional time filled with worry about your loved one’s safety and future. Rest assured that our memory care community has cared for hundreds of individuals with dementia and we are well-experienced in providing a meaningful and enriching life for your loved one.
Our award-winning Mind & Memory program celebrates the spirit and supports the capabilities of your loved one through individualized and group activities that encourage creativity and self-expression. Using research-based programming, we help seniors engage in physical, social, intellectual, emotional, purposeful and spiritual wellness.
If you’re a caregiver providing support to a loved with memory impairment, we also offer short-term stay for when you need a break to rest and recharge. Through our Easy Care, respite care program, short-term stay guests benefit from the same services and amenities as permanent residents.
Residents of The Arbors at Shelburne benefit from thoughtfully prepared and balanced meals, a full calendar of programs and events, housekeeping, laundry service, and transportation along with friendships to last a lifetime. For extra safety, we have round the clock staff, a secure environment and a nurses’ station for any health concerns that may arise.
Benchmark’s innovative approach to senior living is dedicated to elevating human connections—that is, to help seniors connect with the people, places, and activities that bring purpose and meaning to life. One way that we achieve this mission is through our Live Now, Live Well program, which gives residents the opportunity to choose their program of choice. Live Now, Live Well is centered on the six dimensions of wellness: learn, explore, socialize, exercise, discover and create.
