Assisted Living

MaineHealth strives to provide compassionate care and a full range of activities for seniors in need of assisted living, at two beautiful locations in mid-coast Maine.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is a long-term senior care option that provides personal care support services, such as meals, medication management, and transportation. Assisted living offers security, comfort and meaningful activities for residents.

  • Assisted living facilities let residents live independently in their own space. Highly-trained staff is available to provide assistance with daily activities based on the resident’s needs.
  • Activities may include help with grooming, taking medication, and moving from one place to another.
