Participant Services

COVID-19-UPDATE September 9, 2020

The Scotland House may be practicing social distancing for our health, but our community spirit stays strong!

Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in the Scotland House program!  The Vermont Adult Day Programs continue to seek guidance from the Vermont Department of Aging and Independence (DAIL) and the Vermont Department of Health regarding our re-opening timeline to insure the safety of our participants.  Thank you for your patience during this time!

We are still providing information on our program and enrolling participants.  We are providing activity supplies, virtual programming, weekly check in’s with our nursing staff, and caregiver/family support without cost.  Our dedicated staff has not abandoned you! Please email us at info@scotlandhousevt.org or call Tonya Hoyt, Program Manager at 802-280-6080. 

We are happy to answer your questions and help you find resources during the challenges of Covid-19.

Thank you and our best wishes for a time of safety, health, and wellness.

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.
