Creative Expression Through Crafting, by Janice Roberts

As somnolent summer days give way to crisp autumn air, consider joining the fun at our Autumn Country Craft Fair, September 17, 2022, 10-3! In case you aren’t aware of who we are, Vintage Hill, LLC is an assisted living home for the elderly located in Pittsfield New Hampshire. We are excited to be hosting this greater New Hampshire community event for the very first time where residents, staff, and outside vendors will sell their handiwork at our home.

Creative expression through crafting brings joy and beauty to the lives of the artist and the beholder. For this reason, arts and crafts are an integral part of Vintage Hill’s on-going mission to promote independence for our residents. Our seasoned citizens are regularly involved in individual and group projects, whether for personal use, celebrations, or community. Through the sale of various hand-crafted items, Vintage Hill will be donating proceeds to Secret Santa. Secret Santa provides Christmas assistance for residents of Pittsfield in need. Such gifted items include toys, warm outfits and needed winter outerwear. The program is fully funded by donations from local individuals and businesses.

Please come and support our local crafters and community at 10 Berry Avenue, enjoy the concessions and live music, take a chance at a door prize, and visit with friends, new and old! 298442417_5228789070545823_2869354979412207084_n

You Are What You Eat

We’re all familiar with the saying “You are what you eat,” a phrase coined by the American Nutritionist, Victor Lindlahr, in 1942. Simple translation…a healthy diet promotes a healthy lifestyle. My recollection of dining growing up was nothing like modern day. We sat down together as a family and ate home cooked meals. I’m fairly certain I didn’t appreciate it at the time. However, as an adult I’m thankful for the good eating habits my parents instilled in me as a child.

Here at Vintage Hill, we put into practice those traditional customs I kicked against in my younger years. We serve family style meals at our Walton’s table, well balanced and nutritionally sound. It’s one of the ways we can support our residents in remaining fitly independent, because we wholeheartedly believe we “are what we eat.” We also appreciate the value of a good meal. Oftentimes my business partner and I will contemplate going out for dinner. Then we are reminded that Vintage Hill is the best restaurant in town. Why go elsewhere?

Life on the Hill

Blog

Welcome to Vintage Hill!

It’s been almost twenty years since our life began here on the hill. That’s when my best friend and I set out on our joint venture to care for the elderly. What started out as a vision and a prayer, the Lord made a reality in June of 2005.

Vintage Hill, LLC is a small state licensed residential care home located in Pittsfield NH. Our mission is to “maintain a family environment while providing a quality service of assistance in activities of daily living to the elder population. It is our goal to encourage independence, promote physical and mental health, and enhance the quality of life for our residents. In keeping with the Lord’s word, “With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding” (Job 12:12). It is our philosophy to support elders in preserving their dignity.”

This is our life on the hill. Our compassionate, dedicated team works selflessly to maintain the independence of our residents. We provide them a safe, homey environment to live while giving them purpose. As we share glimpses of our life with you, we trust you’ll agree it is love that sets us apart from traditional senior living. Enjoy our delicious home cooked meals, creative and purposeful activities and exciting field trips!

Until the next time…
