“Ethan Allen's ability to connect residents with the community, to make gardening, music and parades part of everyday life allows for the best kind of healthy aging.”
- Governor James Douglas

Ever since the idea of creating a loving place for our seniors was first planted, we’ve been hanging our hopes on the good will and generosity of our friends, our neighbors, and our residents’ family members to help us grow Ethan Allen into the award-winning care home it is today. Our approach to elder care is rooted in the rich Vermont traditions of community-based social action and healthy sustainability

At Ethan Allen Residence we believe that there are endless possibilities, potential and vitality for our residents. We strive to create a place where residents thrive. We call this philosophy “conscious aging.” Aging is a natural part of life and does not end because it has changed from what it used to be. It can be the beginning of a new journey that offers new opportunities to grow, learn, share, thrive, build confidence and become healthier. Living Well does not see people defined by their limitations, but instead by potential that, through love and encouragement, will be achievable.

True healthy and happy living is based not only on the care we give our bodies, but also the care we give to our mind, emotions and spirit.

“Aging is a natural process. We’re here to tend to that aging and bring to it what can be most comfortable, most vital, most helpful for the individual.”
- Paul Kervick, Founding Member
