Friends and Families of Holton Home

We are hoping to offer our space as an extension to the caregiver support group currently run by Ryan Murphy at the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital.  Before initiating this group, we would like to hear from you if this might be something you would be interested in joining.

For more information on what the group offers and the times it may be offered, please contact Emma Owings at emma@holtonhome.org or 802-254-4155.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you,

Visiting Committee News

Holton Home has had a Visiting Committee since its founding in 1892.  Originally, the members were charged with monitoring the quality of the care provided.  Over time, they began offering fancy teas for Valentine’s Day, buying residents Christmas presents, and purchasing and repairing fine furnishings for the home.

As the Home’s activities program grew, the Visiting Committee began finding a greater variety of ways to enrich residents’ lives.  We are continuing to grow and expand our services,

Around the Halls of Holton Home and Beyond

To see a Bald Eagle is a very special thing.  To see a Bald Eagle and her chick, even more special, but to see a mama Bald Eagle fly into her nest with breakfast and then proceed to feed her chick and herself seems a little less than a miracle!  We took a drive up to the Townshend Dam earlier in May, on what turned out to be a morning of perfect warmth and sunshine with just enough of a breeze to keep the blackflies away.  One of the Rangers opened the gate for us, then we slowly drove along Old Route 30,

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.
