“Wake Robin is unique in its setting; surrounded by woods full of trails.”

About Us

Wake Robin’s mission is to create a sustainable dynamic community that honors both mutual support and independence and addresses the health and wellness of each resident.

We’re a non-profit Life Plan Community in Shelburne, VT, overlooking beautiful Lake Champlain. As a Life Plan Community (also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community), we offer independent living and a full continuum of care – residential care, skilled nursing, and memory care are all available if you need them.

What We Value

Your Goals

Wake Robin embodies “resident-powered” community life. It’s led by an administration and staff that will honor your desire to organize and manage your life. In fact, that’s how Wake Robin got started – a group of local people decided to create a community where they would like to retire.

Your Independence

You can be as engaged in community life as you want to be, both within and outside Wake Robin. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved at Wake Robin…and beyond, and many ways to follow your own interests.

Your Environment

We are committed to responsible stewardship of resources, to the beauty and accessibility of our community and surroundings, and to nurturing the environment for a sustainable future.

Your Dignity

We welcome a diverse population and respect everyone’s dignity. Whether you are living in an apartment or cottage, or are living in the Linden Health Center receiving nursing support, we hope you’ll take part in the life of the community.
