Alzheimer’s Care

Restoring dignity and life quality to those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias lies at the heart of our Alzheimer’s program.

We were the first facility in Vermont to integrate this highly specialized care into a nursing home. The Special Needs Unit within Vernon Green integrates leading-edge behavioral management methods and truly caring service. Families can take comfort knowing that our goal is to develop each resident’s personal potential.

Residents live in a safe, secure home-like environment that includes a beautiful garden area, hair salon and a kitchen used for special cooking activities. Care is highly individualized — we tailor therapeutic activities to each person, hold daily group activities to simulate social interaction and invite family and friends to participate in our programs. Personal attention is not only part of the Vernon Home mission, it is tangibly supported by a higher staff-to-resident ratio than most other care facilities. And, our clinically trained team members possess the personal commitment so necessary for exceptional Alzheimer’s care.
