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.

Decking the Halls of Holton Home

Every December a fantastic tree from Elysian Hills arrives.  The tree gets decorated with the help of our 8th grade companions from Hilltop Montessori.  Beforehand, we pop a mountain of popcorn and string it with cranberries while chatting and listening to carols.

Many of the ornaments pre-date me: beautiful handmade lace snowflakes, golden walnuts which were made to replicate ones a resident made while she was a girl in Germany, and others from craft projects and people’s collections.  The tree always comes together beautifully.

In the evenings the lights and reflections of the tree warm the Blue Room.  Sometimes I read with one little light on so everyone can bask in its glow and listen to the familiar words of holiday stories.

Pam makes beautiful wreaths each year that deck our doors and Chelsea beautifies the parlor, elevators and dining room, with her amazing style. 

Revival Update

Construction on Phase 1 of the Bradley House addition is going smoothly, with the exception of it taking longer than the contractor thought would be the case.  We expect to be in this beautiful new wing in mid-January.

A few of the new rooms have not yet been reserved.  If you know someone who might benefit from having trained staff ready to offer assistance, 24 hours/day, or someone who just is tired of doing the shopping, cooking and shoveling themselves, give us a call.  (802) 254-5524 or email Debra@BradleyHouseVT.org.


Our new logo! As new sister homes, Holton Home and Bradley House have the best of both worlds.  We are each unique but have the benefit of working together to provide the best of care.  For example, our nurses meet regularly, sharing the wisdom of their different backgrounds to come up with caregiving policies and procedures that serve both homes well.

It’s time to address our awkward name.  Since we legally merged, we are Holton Home, Inc., doing business as Holton Home and doing business as Bradley House.  We love our names – Bradley House and Holton Home, and there will be no change to them.  But we needed a new parent company name that represents us both.  We had lots of passionate stakeholders weigh in and, in the end, agreed to Garden Path Elder Living.

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.
