Welcome to Mansfield Housing Group, the local operator and manager of independent, assisted and memory care communities based in Essex, Vermont.   In the ever-changing marketplace for senior living, our goal is to meet or exceed the needs of the diverse population we serve, whether a resident simply needs a delicious chef prepared meal because they choose not to cook or whether a family requires a secure and safe environment for their Mother who suffers from the early stages of dementia.  We strive to meet an individual’s personal needs no matter what they desire or require with ranges of choices and options.


The mission for our organization is to provide our residents along with their families the support they need in order to live fulfilling lives.  We develop, build and operate quality communities with an array of services to meet the various needs of our residents.  Based in Vermont, our knowledge of the greater Burlington area allows for a greater understanding of the local market’s desires so that we better meet the needs than larger regional or national providers.  


Mansfield Housing Group is proud of the associates who work with our residents every day, catering to their needs no matter what they may be.  Our success as an organization is directly connected to the associates we attract and work with to deliver the quality services to the seniors we serve.
