Welcome!

The Top of the Square Residents Association is named after the scenic community room at the top of our building, Cathedral Square Senior Living (CSSL) at 3 Cathedral Square in Burlington, Vermont, overlooking Battery Street and Lake Champlain.

CSSL residents meet once a month except in December to discuss and resolve issues of common concern in order to enhance our community life. We listen to each other with patience so that everyone’s needs and concerns may be heard and shared. We continually learn to listen more closely and let whoever has the floor speak free of interruption so that all of us may hear. We express respect for everyone concerned, ever mindful to refrain from personal attacks.

We discover deeper purpose in sharing our challenges and working together to achieve common goals. Most important, we learn to trust each other for our mutual well-being and to practice what is most difficult for all of us: asking for help.
