Reviews of Davis Home

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Davis Home is a small, family-oriented type of facility. Mom is in a good sized room. I had dinner there with my mom once. The staff was very friendly. They do her laundry and her meds, so we don't have to worry about those. They're like a family and they all eat dinner together. Even the staff eats with the residents. They have games as well as arts and crafts. My mom goes to the library two hours a week. It's a very nice place. I would definitely recommend it.

I visited this facility
This facility had a different name when I visited it. My grandmother was housed there because she had gotten into the rough stages of Alzheimer's and at the time my mother felt it best. The staff was nice enough, but were aloof. I believe that now they are under new ownership, and want to say I am sure they have better staffing, and wouldn't like to say anything negative about the place, because it has been a while since I have been there.But I did not like the fact the people were locked in their rooms at night, at least the alzheimers patients were. Other people were free to roam about as they pleased, and that was nice to see. They offered entertainment for people staying there such as a game room, and it gave people an opportunity to meet other people, and make new friends. I was unhappy at the times when I visited because I felt that my grandmother was being kept prisoner. I was also young then, and didn't realize that what was being done, was for her own good. I have since heard that people feel very comfortable putting their loved ones here.
From Davis Home
Davis Home is committed to serving the needs of older adults who are no longer able to live at home but do not need nursing home level of care. We are a Vermont licensed Level III Residential Community Care Home accepting men, women and couples. As times change and the physical space between families grows, extended families are taking on greater importance. Davis Home endeavors to fill in that space by creating an environment that is safe, structured, supportive, warm, and as close to “home” as possible. Davis Home has an outstanding reputation among doctors, social workers, home care providers and other members of the community for offering superlative care and exceptional services. Davis Home is located in a residential section of Windsor, convenient to shopping and entertainment, restaurants, banks, churches, library, barbers and hair salons, dry cleaner, a pharmacy , art galleries, stores and gift shops. They are all just a short walk away. Davis Home accepts private pay, Vermont Medicaid including Assistive Community Care Services (ACCS) and Choices For Care also known as enhanced residential care (ERC) residents.
At an Old Home day celebration in Windsor, August 16, 1901, one of the distinguished speakers was the Honorable Gilbert A. Davis. He summarized the many needs of the community, among which was a home for older adults, to be organized under the Act of 1892 which had been introduced in the Vermont State Senate. A large committee was appointed but no action was taken. It was not until 1955 that such a home was made possible by the daughter-in-law of Gilbert A. Davis and widow of his son, Gilbert F. Davis, who left her home and furnishings on State Street, and a trust fund to help maintain it, to be known as The Davis Home. The Davis Home operated as an assisted care home for 45 years when in August 2000 the Board of Trustees made the decision to close the home. It was purchased and re-opened in October 2000 and has been flourishing ever since. Carrie Jewell purchased the Davis Home on January 1, 2006.
