About Wake Robin

Wake Robin is an active, safe, supportive community of adults. We value communication and fellowship, joy and humor. We welcome a diverse population and believe in everyone’s lifelong dignity and worth. Wake Robin, a locally-based non-profit, is committed to responsible stewardship of resources, to the beauty and accessibility of our facilities and surroundings, and to nurturing the environment for a sustainable future.

Wake Robin embodies “resident-powered” community life. It is led by an administration and staff that honors residents’ desire to organize and manage their activities and follow their interests. Residents remain as independent and engaged in community life — both within and outside Wake Robin — as they choose to be. As a Life Care Community*, Wake Robin’s first priority is the care and well-being of every resident.

* We are also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community, or CCRC—a community where all levels—independent living, residential care, and skilled nursing—are available.

A Place to Be Yourself A local begininning            

Wake Robin began when a group of local people decided to create a community where they would like to retire. On a wooded hillside overlooking the Lake Champlain Valley and the Adirondack Mountains, our founders built Vermont’s first Continuing Care Retirement Community, where residents pay an entrance fee and a fixed monthly fee in return for assured lifetime care.
