Assisted Living in Maine

Maine is nicknamed “The Pine Tree State” after the white pine forests which cover the state. Maine has over 17 million acres of forest and over 3,470 miles of coastline on the mainland – 5,000 miles total if you include all of its islands. With more coastline than California, it’s no surprise that Maine is famous for its seafood. Over 90% of the country’s lobster is harvested in Maine, and much of the state’s culture is influenced by the fishing industry. Locals love to celebrate Maine’s seafaring and fishing heritage, especially at events like the annual Maine Lobster Festival.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 20 assisted living facilities in Maine. The median monthly cost of assisted living in Maine is about $5,100.

Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Belfast, ME
Dirigo Pines in Orono, ME
2.7

It's very difficult to get a callback whether you're talking with billing or the nurses in the actual unit. Overall my loved seems pretty well adjusted, and seems to like it there. For that, I rate them highly. When I look at my loved one, his clothes look a little dirty and he looks a little unkempt. They did ask me to send him another razor (he came in with a $100 razor that was misplaced). We've brought in numerous grooming materials and the staff doesn't seem to know where they are (although honestly, with dementia, that could be my loved one putting them somewhere, it's hard to tell). It's so hard with Covid going on. But hopefully things will get better. As far as communicating what's going on with my loved one or with billing, that's been difficult.

Birch Bay Retirement Village in Bar Harbor, ME
5.0

My mother has been a resident at Birch Bay for five years. She was in an independent living apartment for the first three, and is now in Pleasant Cove, the assisted living unit. She has always been happy with the location, the view, the staffing and the services at Birch Bay. She loves the Bar Harbor area, and enjoys the views of the bays and islands out her windows. Every time any of us call, she assures us she is "well-fed, well taken care of." She appreciates the attentiveness of the staff, the music and craft activities, and the clean, warm and cozy environment. We have been especially impressed with the Birch Bay response to COVID-19. Their attention to detail has been top-notch, communication to family and visitors superb, and precautions well thought out. My uncle and aunt had been living at a different (more expensive) facility, and after visiting my mother several times have now joined her at Birch Bay. We all recommend it highly!

My loved one loved it here. The community was very accommodating during the transition of my loved one and this was during COVID. They even coordinated hospice for my loved one. My loved one loved Penny, Samantha, and all the staff. I would recommend the community to others.
