The Meadows at East Mountain

Assisted Living Facility with separate Special Care Wings in Rutland, Vermont

Client:  The Meadows at East Mountain
Location: Rutland, VT

The Meadows at East Mountain is a sixty room Assisted Living facility
designed to make residents feel at home with cozy common and dining areas and a beautiful garden area with a gazebo.   Large windows, detailed woodworking, multiple fireplaces and chandeliers are found throughout.

In 2007 and 2014, Russell Construction Services built 2 additional Special Care Wings to provide the Assisted Living Facility with a combined total of 20 additional beds to provide an intimate, homey and secure unit for residents assessed with greater physical and/or cognitive limitations. It allows  residents to “age in place” and avoid most long-term nursing home placements. Although it specializes in meeting the needs of those with dementia, it also services those residents who require extra physical support.

The new buildings feature a nurses station, kitchen, dining area office space, and a fenced in back yard with a sensory garden with fountains and stamped concrete sidewalks.

The additions were built while the existing facilities and wings were fully occupied.

The Vermont Country Store hired Russell based on our ability to meet aggressive schedules and our craftsmen’s reputation for superior workmanship.

added bathrooms and a new customer entry porch and rear receiving entry.

At their Weston Store we added a connector for their wine and cheese store to incorporate this area into the main store’s floor plan. We also built a new addition to the Bryant House Restaurant for their new commercial kitchen and an exterior snack shack.
