COVID 19 Update December 30, 2020
Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in the Scotland House program! We are ready to celebrate a new year!
The Scotland House has worked diligently towards a date of re-opening 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, continues to postpone resuming our in-person services to our at risk population. Our program continues to partner with the Vermont Association of Adult Day Services during this challenging time to focus on re-opening standards.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
The Scotland House does not offer transportation services at this time. Families and Caregivers are responsible for transportation to and from the program.
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.
