COVID 19 Update November 23, 2020

Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in the Scotland House program!  The Scotland House has worked diligently to work towards a date of reopening with the Vermont Department of Aging and Independence (DAIL) and the Vermont Department of Health.  Unfortunatley, the rising COVID-19 virus numbers in our state will once more postpone our reopening to in-person servcies. 

Despite Covid and a global pandemic, the Scotland House is still here to Share The Care!  Our outreach into our community will continue to fulfill our mission.  Please call us to find out about our individulalized activity kits that we are offering to in home caregivers, as well as our support group, telehealth, and virtual programs.  All of our services remain free of charge to anyone in need with the generosity of various grants, and community donations.

Our staff are still here working to ensure that you and your families needs are being met to support your aging at home goals.  Please email us at info@scotlandhousevt.org or call us at 802-280-6080.

Life Enrichment Programming

At the Scotland House the voice, personal interest, and choices are an integral part of someone’s day.  Life enrichment programs are tailored to what our participants are interested in, and are adapted to meet individual needs.

Our staff strive to find ways to support someone’s sense of purpose with meaningful opportunities that enhance dignity, personal gifts, and independent strengths.  

The Scotland House program understands that not every person wants to participate or enjoys group activities. Individual choices will be respected and there will be different activities available to keep people engaged, that will not interfere with their decision to spend time independently.

 

Transportation

The Scotland House does not offer transportation services at this time.  Families and Caregivers are responsible for transportation to and from the program.

 

Nutrition

A daily lunchtime meal is provided for each participant, along with snacks and beverages throughout the day.  Lunch is provided by The Thompson Senior Center in Woodstock, VT.  Dietary restrictions, sensitivities, allergies, and preferences are a priority.   The Scotland House does have a small service kitchen where we prepare snacks and other delicious foods for our life enrichment program.
