Why look for assisted living in Vermont?
Vermont has 600,000+ residents, making it one of the smallest in the United States in terms of population. For comparison, notoriously remote Wyoming (to the far west) has approximately 50,000 fewer people, and Rhode Island is nearly double in size. Though living in Vermont does come with short summers and long winters, it gets overlooked in the highly sought after northeast part of the United States for senior living.
Affordability should be the major selling point of any state looking to attract retirees, and if you are looking to save significant money on senior living in your latter years then you will be impressed how much further your funds stretch in Vermont compared to the rest of New England. The average assisted living facility only costs $3,800+ per month in the state, which is far lower than in other states in the New England region.
The Green Mountain State is also home to some really underrated scenery, especially if you’re the outdoors type. The rich farmland and forests give way to some spectacular lakes and creeks.

Types of Assisted Living Available in Vermont
Vermont lacks in population yet has a number of different types of elderly care as well as methods to help finance it (more information, below). Here is a quick breakdown on the type of assisted living services you may get for a loved one in a senior living facility in Vermont:
Directed care services: The services are defined to help those “incapable of recognizing danger, expressing needs, making basic personal care decisions, or other forms of needing assistance”.
Personal care services: Certified or non-certified staff may assist with daily living tasks as well as help manage medications. It is more hands-on than in-home care yet not nearly as extensive as a nursing home setting.
Supervisory care services: Basic monitoring of residents that are considered fairly well off given their age, yet may need help with medication management or other basic functions.
Paying for Assisted Living in Vermont
Family members seeking financial help for assisted living costs in Vermont may turn to the Global Commitment to Health Waiver, which helps fund any elderly care costs not related to nursing homes.
The Assistive Community Care Services and Attendant Services programs are two other initiatives established for financial aid under Medicaid.
