the 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 Junction, the crossroads of Chittenden County, nestled in the heart of northwestern Vermont. Situated near the charming village of Essex Junction, with close proximity to Burlington and major highways, our desirable, walkable grounds encourage fresh air and exercise. We are proudly adjacent to The Essex Resort and Spa. Our program embraces a mindful, non-pharmacological approach, based in research and best practice.

THE MAPLE RIDGE DIFFERENCE
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.
We aspire to provide the best possible life for our residents and do not let their memory loss limit them. Our days start with appropriate, nutritious meals, senior-friendly exercise, meaningful activities that provide purpose, entertainment, trips, and music, and ends with a good night’s sleep. Our nursing staff is unobtrusively there, to help with any health care needs that may arise.
