EastView provides our Residents with the opportunity to thrive in and benefit from a community-rich lifestyle. Each defines his or her own distinctive daily endeavors amidst a backdrop of meaningful involvement, mind expanding and fun experiences, and the neighborly connections and security they glean living at EastView.
Our residents bring a lifetime of experience, interests, and talents to the community
…treasures to cultivate and to share.
Carol & Reg

Over the past six years they have lovingly created a beautiful garden sanctuary featuring their favorite shade and sun-loving perennials in our memory care neighborhood. They also serve on the Board of Spirit in Nature, host international students from Middlebury College, and are active members of Veterans for Peace. Reg also volunteers by assisting migrant workers, and Carol volunteers with a local charitable thrift shop.

Don has directed EastView residents in staged readings of plays, poetry, musical lyrics, sonnets, famous speeches, and the staging of personal histories.

It’s a Dog’s Life…
We recognize that pets are valued members of our residents’ families. With the dog park just up the street and great places to walk together, our canine residents could not be happier. And our residents’ sun-filled homes are perfect for beloved felines to curl up for a comfy afternoon nap.
