A time to grow — and stay connected
The Morgan Orchards Senior Living Community began with a vision — that the Randolph area should make it easy and attractive for seniors to stay in their community, living where they want to, where their worries are lifted.
As we age we often wish to remain home, but we can tire of the isolation, stress and uncertainty of running a household. Strode Independent Living makes the transition to a retirement community inviting and easy. You’ll give up housework and property upkeep — and you’ll enjoy new friends, healthy living, and a wide variety of activities and social events.
With its orchards, berry patches, resident gardens, and walking trails, the design of Strode creates a living connection to the farming traditions of central Vermont. Our senior living community builds on the best of small-town life — it’s safe, clean, friendly, and supportive. And today, more seniors are choosing retirement in a college town, where they can learn anew, meet exciting people, and relish the cultural and athletic life of a campus community. That’s Strode Independent Living! It’s right here … and it’s home.
Let go of your worries … and open up to life
Here are just some of the features of daily living at Strode Independent Living:
Easy access to shopping, dining, entertainment and more. Tri-Valley Transit, the local transportation service, whisks residents to downtown Randolph, with simple connections to the wider area. Montpelier and Burlington, Vermont, as well as Hanover, New Hampshire, are within an hour’s drive, as are two airports. Boston and Montreal are just three hours away.
Healthy activities for your mind and body, plus all the outdoor, four-season fun that central Vermont offers. At Strode you can create a lifestyle that’s as active and creative as you’d like it to be. Some of the activities our current residents are participating in include: Meet and Greets with gallery artists, water aerobics at Vermont Technical College, special interest groups (such as Daily Morning Stroll, Garden, and Woodshop), afternoon games (everything from Scrabble to board games, to crafts, and more), and weekly movie nights.

Great food! Gifford Medical Center has an amazing reputation for the quality of its menus, with fresh food often sourced from neighboring farms. That continues at Strode, where residents can enjoy interesting, yet approachable and wholesome, chef-prepared dining every night in a comfortable atmosphere.

Natural beauty. The views, quite simply, can take your breath away. And each season brings a fresh, colorful change — a benefit of New England living that can be hard to find elsewhere.

And you can open up to life in a supportive community, where you’re exactly as sociable, active, and involved as you choose to be.
