The Highlands in Topsham, ME
3.5

The Highlands has been really great and very accommodating. They have also been great with communication with the families. We have been satisfied with the facility and the care that she is receiving.

Avita of Stroudwater in Westbrook, ME
5.0

They did try to take good care of my loved one. They offered daily activities and the community was clean. The food was good. My loved one was only there for a short time as we realized he needed more care than they were able to provide. They oversold themselves on the care that was available. They gave out incorrect information in regard to some programs that may have been available. I would recommend asking about the security at this community.

Bay Square at Yarmouth
4.6

Things have been going great here it is not going to be a long term stay because she has been improving. The people are very friendly, there does seem to be a slight shortage of staff members right now. The management is very nice and trying their hardest. She has made some friends here and she has actually been asked to make wreaths around Christmas time for people who wanted them. They are also asking her to help with other activities since she is very creative. I would recommend them to others looking.
