9 Residential Care Homes near South Portland, ME

Residential care homes in South Portland may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. South Portland care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Older-adult care homes vary more than other options for senior living in South Portland, so families can choose from a wide range of prices, amenities, and services.

What are care homes?

Residential care homes are houses in residential neighborhoods that are equipped, adapted, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually between two and 10.

Although residential care homes vary significantly depending on the community, services usually include:

  • Help with personal care
