Here's a tool to find assisted living and residential care facilities in Vermont


To use the Facility Finder, hover the mouse (on desktop) over any marker to get basic information about a facility. Click or tap it to add it to a printable list. Click on a county to zoom in on it; to zoom out, click "Return to Map." Filter results by clicking on the four filter buttons at the top. To print the list, press the print button.

This tool is a companion to the story, Shuttering sites and spiking costs: The crisis facing older Vermonters who need affordable care.

When we started searching online for residential care for older Vermonters, we found the information to be confusing, out of date and full of jargon.

Many facilities in Vermont who told us they had closed were still showing up on online databases like A Place for Mom. State websites were also challenging to navigate, and what information was available was limited.

To determine which Level III residential care homes and assisted living residences were still open, we called every facility currently licensed by the state. We then mapped them to show what’s available in each county, what they cost, how many beds they have, and how much — if any — Medicaid-funded care they provide.

Licensed facilities which don't serve older Vermonters are not on the map. Locations have also been slightly randomized to prevent overlapping.

We asked every facility for a low and high estimate, but those estimates don't necessarily include other services like medication, food, and amenities. Additionally, not all facilities answered our questions or returned our calls. But we hope our data provides a useful starting point.

Corey Dockser is Vermont Public’s first data journalist, a role combining programming and journalism to produce stories that would otherwise go unheard. His work ranges from complex interactive visualizations to simple web scraping and data cleaning. Corey graduated from Northeastern University in 2022 with a BS in data science and journalism. He previously worked at The Buffalo News in Buffalo, New York as a Dow Jones News Fund Data Journalism intern, and at The Boston Globe.
One in five Vermonters is considered elderly. But what does being elderly even mean — and what do Vermonters need to know as they age? I’m looking into how aging in Vermont impacts living essentials such as jobs, health care and housing. And also how aging impacts the stuff of life: marriage, loss, dating and sex.
