Holton Home, Western Ave Brattleboro VT  setting the standard in elder care since 1892


Licensed by the State of Vermont as a residential care home, we provide assistance with daily tasks, giving our residents the freedom to enjoy life and maintain independence. Caring staff are available 24 hours a day to help with personal care and medication. A nurse monitors each resident’s health. Also included in the affordable monthly fee are three delicious meals each day, activities, and housekeeping and laundry services. Holton Home has been a non-profit since 1892.

A Spring Lamb Visits the Home!

Joe Cook brought one of his new lambs in for a visit on Friday, March 20. The lamb was a hit with our residents and the participants in our Children’s Playgroup!  See below for more pictures (provided courtesy of Kayla Rice, Brattleboro Reformer).  For EVEN MORE cute photos, check out our Facebook page!

Capital Campaign – WE DID IT!

You’ve met the challenge!

Raised $150,000 towards the $150,000 target.


The $25,000 Thompson Trust challenge has been met and donations continue to come in. Which is great, because the section of our building that was renovated was built in the mid-1800s and presented some surprises! If you haven’t sent in your gift, please know it will still be gladly received.

My deepest thanks to all residents and staff for their kind understanding, forbearance, longsuffering and many other admirable qualities, readily on display throughout the lengthy construction period! I appreciate it!

Home Improvement

Holton Home Improvement

We’re starting a home improvement project.  Yes, another one!  A section of the first floor (where the front of the building connects to the Dining Room), has two resident rooms and a hallway.  The second floor has the same floor plan of two rooms and a hallway.  All four rooms are very small and none have full bathrooms that are handicapped accessible.  And those hallways are too narrow to allow two-way traffic by residents using walkers.  We are expanding this corner of our building to meet all these needs.

It is because of our community of kind friends that Holton Home has been able to provide exceptional service to elders for more than 120 years. Thank you.
