Vermont Elderly Peoples Homes provides low-cost, independent-living accommodation for those in need. We have over 50 residential units across three locations in Vermont. Each of the properties is located close to transport and shops. Our intention is to create a caring environment with a sense of community and belonging that goes beyond just the provision of housing. Our facilities are neat, private and set in extensive gardens that offer the option of relaxing in shade or sun throughout the day. The units and communal facilties are well maintained.
Description of units
With one exception all of the Vermont Elderly People’s Homes (VEPH) units are single bedroom with kitchen, lounge room and bathroom/laundry. (One unit has two bedrooms.) Each unit is constructed of brick veneer and most have terracotta-tiled roofs. Parking is separate from the units and is not undercover. Adjacent to every unit is a small garden plot for the resident to maintain. The rest of the gardens are maintained by the VEPH committee.
These spacious units are excellent for singles or couples.
Location of units
VEPH consists of three villages around Vermont. Each village enjoys a unique setting and has a number of single-bedroom units. Our priority is to maintain the beautiful garden settings and peaceful atmosphere that current residents enjoy.
Vermont Elderly People’s Homes Inc. is managed by a committee of management. The twelve committee members all live locally and bring to VEPH a diverse range of skills from healthcare, social work, finance and management backgrounds. Each committee member provides their support voluntarily taking responsibility for various aspects of the organisation and facilities.
