YOU ARE NOT ALONE…

We’re ready to help you both.

We’re Scotland House.

We Share the Care.

The Scotland House is more then an adult day program for those who are aging. Our staff is here to support you, the family and/or caregiver, with your goal to keep someone at home and out of a long term care setting.

Caregiving can bring moments of joy, laughter, and keep family ties strong. It can also bring feelings of frustration, exhaustion, anger, fear, despair, sadness, and guilt. It is normal to have these feelings! You are visiting our website today, because you are looking at a very healthy step towards your own wellness. You can’t be a good caregiver if you don’t take care of yourself.

“I promised him I would never put him into a nursing home.”

“No one else has time to help me and I need to work.”

“He is not the same person.” “I get lonely.”

” I never imagined having to give my grandmother a shower or help her to the bathroom.”

“He asks the same question all the time.” “I am ready to go out of my mind.”

No one wants to ask for help or admit that they need help. Our staff understand what you are going through. Having much needed respite and time off with your role is why we are here serving the community. The Scotland House is here to Share The Care.

Take the first step today and call or email us. (802) 280-6080 or info@scotlandhousevt.org

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens: but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller
