Established in 1886 as a private, non-profit organization, we are well known for our warm, welcoming and home-like atmosphere.  First time visitors often say “I feel like I’m in someone’s home”… and that is just the feeling we strive to create for each of our sixty six residents.

Our assisted living community is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood in the southern end of Burlington, minutes away from the University of Vermont, Fletcher Allen Health Care and the many activities and cultural offerings of the city.

The assisted living services and amenities that we offer at The Converse Home allow our residents to be independent in a supportivecaring environment.

  • 24 hour staffing & emergency response system
  • Medication administration and/or supervision

For an additional fee, residents can also receive services in our on-site beauty salon or at one of our regularly scheduled foot clinics.

Our Gardenview community was designed specifically for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory loss.  From the special overhead lighting that prevent shadows on the floor, to the “memory” shelves outside each resident’s room, attention has been paid to the details of this special space.  Our staff get to know each resident as an individual and develop personalized care plans and activities that address the needs of each person.  We strive to provide excellent care in a safe, joyful environment.

In addition to the services and amenities that all residents of The Converse Home enjoy, Gardenview features:

  • An intimate community of 16 private rooms with private baths
  • A secured environment
  • Structured routine around the activities of daily life
  • Higher staff-to-resident ratio
  • A specially designed and secure garden with walking path

“In the nearly four years that my father has been a resident, we have run out of superlatives to describe how he has been cared for. He has been treated with respect, professionalism, competence, compassion and dare I say affection. As his capabilities have inevitably diminished, the staff has done everything possible to help him maintain his dignity and independence in as many ways as he could.”
