Living Well Group has three Vermont campuses — Living Well Residence in Bristol, Ethan Allen Residence in Burlington, and Heaton Woods Residence in Montpelier. We provide a safe and enriching home-like setting for about 100 low- to moderate-income older Vermonters. As a nonprofit organization, we provide an opportunity for our residents who can no longer age in place to age in community. Our organization prioritizes local, community engagement through our innovative programming, therapies, and food culture. We believe in local sustainability and endless possibilities, potential and vitality for our residents. Our philosophy of conscious aging promotes a new journey that offers our residents opportunities to grow, learn and share.

For our first Exhibition and Banquet residents in our program will participate in activities such as viewing and discussing original works of fine art; creating original hands-on projects that articulate the richness of their life experience; and celebrating their accomplishments with culminating gallery presentations open to the community and their families.
