Planned respite home would aid the terminally ill

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — A group of Addison County residents is laying the groundwork for a new respite care home that would provide support services for dying patients and their families.

The nonprofit venture, called Addison Respite Care Home Ltd. (ARCH), would be located on land off Middle Road. A very preliminary plan calls for the approximately 3,000-square-foot facility to be equipped with two private bedrooms for terminally ill residents, along with related amenities and basic accommodations for family visitors.

This summer, the view inside the museum is arguably lovelier still, as the college celebrates the landscapes paintings and etchings of celebrated Italian-American artist Luigi Lucioni.
