Coronavirus UpdateView All Updates
Dear Family and Friends,
As communities start to loosen COVID-19 restrictions, we wanted to share an update on visitation guidelines. Genesis-affiliated centers are currently offering indoor visitation for all residents (regardless of vaccination status), with the exception of the three scenarios listed below. CMS, the federal agency that regulates nursing centers, has updated its visitation guidance due to high resident vaccination rates and a drop in COVID-19 cases around the country. read more

A Recent Rehabilitation Patient Testimonial
"I had a very pleasant experience at Langdon. Staff was attentive; facility was clean and neat! "- Joanne M
Joanne was kind to write down all of the staff members names who cared for her that she loved dearly, we appreciate that Joanne! Best wishes for continued recovery!
The care at Langdon has been very good! The LNA's have all been good, extremely caring in making sure I was comfortable and clean!
Everything was fantastic!
I thought everything was fantastic! Everyone did everything they could to try to help. I would recommend to anybody. I was against this from the start (I wanted home) but I'm glad I came.
Dedicated, caring staff
My parents retired to their home region of Northern New England, and have been happy to be at Langdon Place in their later years. The excellent care they receive from its dedicated staff has seen them through a number of medical crises. That is all to the good for them, and is equally important for me and my siblings. Our family is close in heart but each of us children live far away in other regions of the country. And while we take turns visiting the folks throughout the year , it is a great comfort for us to know that they are receiving high quality, friendly care while we are back at our own homes. I've come to personally know many among the Langdon staff and enjoy the close working relationship I have with them regarding my parents' care, especially since I hold their medical powers of attorney. The staff does a wonderful job keeping me informed about their needs and care decisions in a way that shows they truly care for my parents as people, not just patients.
Best wishes for continued wellness!
My therapists all worked with me and made me use all available needs and energy to improve my ability to walk. The nurses were all attentive and helpful!"
- Norman L

We are so grateful!

"Physical Therapy is Fabulous!"
10 out of 10!
If I had to rate Langdon Place on a scale of 1-10, I would have to say 10. The staff are considerate and kind. The furnishings are homelike. The grass and scrubs are manicured and beautiful. The care is very similar to hospital care. Medication is professionally dispensed. The main care is occupational and physical therapy. The therapists are very knowledgeable of their trade and can get the patients back on their feet even better than they were before.
Recent assisted living respite testimonial:
"It is with mixed emotions that I am departing Langdon Place to go home to my own apartment in Bellows Falls, VT. The staff was always very kind, thoughtful, willing to listen and anticipate my needs and those of other residents. It has been a pleasure to spend the last several weeks with both the residents and staff who were happy to be here and a pleasure to be around. I was impressed with the activity staff and the amenities such as the shopping trips and the lunch bunch. If and when the time comes I will be happy to say, I am back." - Hazel G

"Smiles in their eyes"
I was so happy to be home. It would not have been possible without the wonderful care of Langdon. Everyone I came into contact with had, "smiles in their eyes". Thank for providing access to my vaccine!
"Everyone I saw was very friendly and very helpful. Pros all the way. Someone was always here when I needed some help! A+"
Our father was a resident at Langdon Place for four months with several health issues. Langdon Places’ staff was incredibly caring and knowledgeable, helping our family navigate uncertain times during the pandemic and keeping us informed while he was transported back and forth to the hospital. There are scheduled weekly calls, emails and personal phone calls with any changes to the facility. While we weren’t able to see him in person, the staff would place him in front of a window so we could see him and talk on the phone and on his birthday, a staff member came out and met us in the parking lot to bring his gifts to him. The care he received from nursing to rehab was exceptional, and we’ll be forever grateful for his time at Langdon Place."
