Review for Bennington Project Independence Inc, Bennington, VT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Bennington Project Independence is a state of the art adult day service/rehab facility. Located in a converted historic barn just a mile out of downtown, we are a comfortable, bright, safe, caring place for loved ones whose family members need day services in order to work themselves. I used to volunteer at BPI occasionally, and upon my partial retirement and when an opportunity came to serve on the Board of Directors, I jumped at the chance. I am so proud to be involved with this facility and its amazing staff. A participant once told me that she loved coming to BPI and when I asked her why she told me that it was the first time in years that she felt safe. We offer so much. Of course things like medication, meals, exercise, and what you would normally expect, but at such a high and competent level. The view from the many windows and porch is truly amazing. There is always a group discussing current events or constructing a puzzle or cooking or doing crafts or talking to the two parakeets, and on and on. From the moment you step in the door and are greeted by someone at the front desk, you know you are someplace special and that is proven time and again by the smiles on the faces of everyone there.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

countless ways, first as a community member, then as a volunteer, and now for the last two years as a board member.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

only wish for more money to continue what we have so successfully begun.

Role:  Board Member & I serve on the board of directors.
