Memory Care Senior Living

Formerly Spring Village at Essex

Discover the
Maple Ridge Difference

Welcome to Maple Ridge

Welcome to Maple Ridge, formerly known as Spring Village at Essex. Serving area seniors since 2016, we are an intimate, secure, and loving senior living community for those with Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of memory loss.

We are located in beautiful Essex, the “Crossroads of Chittenden County,” nestled in the heart of northwestern Vermont. Minutes from the charming Village of Essex Junction, our desirable, walkable neighborhood offers many amenities. Our program embraces a mindful, non-pharmacological approach, based in research and best practice.

Discover memory care reimagined at Maple Ridge.


To help our residents truly thrive despite the limitations of their memory loss, our memory care program is intentionally named AspireCare℠. To that end, we custom design a thoughtful rhythm to each resident’s day that includes all of the research-proven components of good care for those with Alzheimer’s and related dementias.

It starts with appropriate nutrition, senior friendly exercise, meaningful activities that provide purpose, a safe environment free from stress, their health care needs being recognized and promptly attended to, and ends with a good night’s sleep.
