Established in 1941, The Gary Residence is a senior living community like no other.
We are a residential care community that includes 13 private suites in an historic downtown home in Montpelier, Vermont. At The Gary Residence, we strive to preserve the values of a private home with the greatest possible amount of freedom and individual choice. We blend a healthy balance of independence with the right amount of support, with plenty of privacy and just the right mix of activities and amenities. Residents remain as active as they want to be while enjoying the comforts of our natural home setting.
As a licensed residential care home, we provide room, board, personal care, general supervision, nursing oversight and medical management, but not full-time nursing care. Our residents enjoy their own suites with private bath, elegant common areas, an engaging staff, and a lively activity calendar.
Close to everything
Located in the heart of downtown Montpelier, Vermont, The Gary Residence makes it easy to be part of the wider community while enjoying safety and support at home. We are a short walk from many downtown destinations such as the public library, senior center, and post office, as well as banks, churches, hair salons, shops, restaurants, and the state capitol. Residents come and go as they please, and they make meaningful, enriching connections in town.
Throughout the year, residents may enjoy all that the lively city of Montpelier offers, including arts festivals, cultural events, summer concerts, annual celebrations such as Independence Day festivities, and a year-round farmer’s market. It’s a “small town with big-city amenities.” Learn more about Montpelier.
