    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Shelburne

    Named after a celebrated nobleman of the British Parliament and Prime Minister, Shelbourne is a small town in the Greater Burlington area that's home to more than 7,500 residents. At 21.9% of the population, compared to the national average of 16%, people aged 65 and over here make up a large portion of the residents in Shelbourne. Those seniors who require some assistance with daily living can find accommodations at three facilities right in the town limits. An additional 11 facilities are nearby.

    Vermont licenses and regulates these facilities, officially known as assisted living residences (ALRs) and residential care homes (RCHs), through the Agency of Human Services. ALRs and RCHs have different tier levels according to the types of care they can provide.
