From Our New Site Director

I’d like to share a little about who I am and where I come from. My twin brother and I were born in Albany, NY and adopted when we were a week old by Susan and Ken Owings. We then moved with them to Brattleboro, VT. I have traveled off and on throughout my life but have always returned home to Brattleboro. It is important to me to be close to my family and to be a part of this community that I love. I am engaged to be married this coming July, have twins (a boy and girl) who will be six this May, and have a beautiful little dog who we adopted from the Humane Society last October. I love spending time with my family, swimming, hiking, doing yoga, and volunteering in the community to help local people in need. My family made a decision last year to move into my childhood home and take over the housing expenses so that my dad was able to retire. My mom will retire after this spring. We thoroughly enjoy co-housing with them and it is my goal to take care of them as their needs increase. I feel it is important to give the same love and care to my parents that they so generously gave, and continue to give to me.

Holton Home and Bradley House Merger Celebration - 7

Merger Celebration

The Brooks House Atrium was the perfect spot to celebrate the merger of Holton Home and Bradley House.

Residents from both homes attended and soon it was standing room only. Many community members joined us to toast the coming together of two excellent homes and the future of elder care in Brattleboro.

Around the Halls of Holton Home

Why is it that it’s so much more special to drink a cup of tea from a cup and saucer? Is it the delicateness of the china? The memory of tea parties, imaginary or pretend, as a very young child? The ceremony of it? The momentary pause that comes with tea brewed in a pot, and poured in a small cup, and the relaxed conversation? It seems to me like a sunrise or sunset, a time that you can just be in awe of the moment and soak in the present.

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.
