"The Village is a terrific place! It is clean, the rooms are a nice size, the staff is friendly and caring. My mother is safe, no longer wandering, her meds are properly managed and she is eating well with 24/7 support. She is happy there, comfortable with the routine and loves mingling with the other residents and staff as well as participating in some of the activities!"
"My parents moved to the Village from another facility. The transition went well, the staff are welcoming and kind, the food is good, and there are many activities for them to choose from. Highly recommend!"
"We moved both of my parents to The Village from another facility and are so happy we did. The Village is a family and we have peace of mind knowing they are so well taken care of by people who truly care about them.
All of the staff are great but I have to mention Carol Kolenski, Move In Coordinator. Carol is incredible - professional, responsive and caring. She played a big part in our decision to move our parents after we met her and took a tour. More importantly, my parents both love her. Dad recently mentioned that she adds so much happiness to his day."
"I moved my mother to The Village four months ago.... She is very happy at the Village at White River Junction. She raves about the food and is very happy with the staff. They keep her very busy which she loves. She has gone to restaurants, shopping and even a horse show. They made a big deal of her 95th birthday with a delicious luncheon. The facilities are clean and beautiful and there is always something to do."
"Thank you to Jodi and all the Directors/Staff for making my father's transition successful! We had no choice but to move my father during the State COVID mandates. The Village has tremendous protective protocols for residents, staff and building. I don't think twice about my father's safety or care, he is very happy there."
"I moved my mom here from AZ from a very elite retirement community. We were a bit nervous about the move as the AZ facility was very posh. the AZ rooms and food were fabulous. My father passed so we wanted to move my mom east to be closer to family. We searched all over VT, NH and MA for a place she would be comfortable. Much to my surprise we picked WRJ, VT. That said, my mom is thriving and doing much better than in AZ. She has met very genuine friends.
The nurses and medical providers are super nice and personable. They accept my mom for her attributes as well as limitations. Carol the director of admissions has gone above and beyond to meet our questions and concerns even after we signed the contract. The food is great and WRJ is thriving these days. She can go on trips and out to dinner or stay home and socialize with family and friends. I could not be more thrilled with our choice after weeks of searching and meeting with various providers. I would highly recommend The Village at WRJ."
"My wife and I have lived at the Village at White River Junction for over a year and a half now I have been deeply impressed by the dedication and enthusiasm of all the staff, from office to maintenance, nursing, housekeeping, and culinary, for the welfare and comfort of residents. Not withstanding the stresses and strains imposed by the sudden and unexpected spread of COVID-19 in early 2020, and the need for new restrictions and procedures, we were all well looked after and kept both safe as well as comfortable throughout.
Proximity to emergency and health service as well as well as the facilities of the town having a great advantage throughout.
The indoors exercise room, library, music room, and gallery have been popular for all who can make use of them.
With changes in the weather through spring and summer and the opportunities for outdoor activities, we’ve been able to avail of well-planned outings and picnics, open air leisure time in the compact garden, and penthouse terrace. And finally, facilities for receiving guests and family for visits and meals have been a very welcome revival in recent weeks."
We also enjoy the Smith and Sons kitchen for family gatherings and the cooking demonstrations are one of our favorite activities. We work out in the Latham Gym every day and attend tai-chi classes as well. Sometimes we just like to relax and read in the Landmark Library. The food at The Village at White River Junction is very good with a variety of choices.
We are so content here at The Village!"

"After my wife passed away, my children and I had a lot of conversations about what would be best for me. I had many options to consider and I decided The Village fit my needs the best. I enjoy my new friendships and my children and friends like coming to visit me here. For me, The Village exceeds expectations."
What is a Dementia Friendly Environment? Living Nooks!
Based on the latest research in best tools and best practices for dementia care, The Village has created a series of Living Nooks throughout our 2nd floor. The goals of Living Nooks are to create small vignettes that help Memory Care residents spark old memories and to create activities that encourage interest, movement, and interaction.
LIVING NOOKS™ are innovative, interactive, and immersive self-directed activity spaces specifically designed for Memory Care residents at The Village. They help answer the question, "What is a dementia friendly environment?" They are just one of the many innovations we use at The Village to provide you or your loved one with the care they deserve.
Living Nooks, a best practice for dementia care, recreate familiar situations from the past — like gardening, caring for a baby, tending to office tasks, laundry, or maintaining a family kitchen.
We seek to provide comfortable places for our residents to feel relaxed and in control. By participating in various tasks that they may have done throughout their whole life, residents feel productive and worthwhile.
