Independent Living in Maine

Maine is nicknamed “The Pine Tree State” after the white pine forests which cover its landscape. Maine has over 17 million acres of forest and more than 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 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. Maine’s awe-inspiring natural beauty and the rustic charm of cities like Portland and Augusta make Maine an excellent retirement destination.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 15 retirement communities in Maine that offer independent living. The median monthly cost of independent living in Maine is about $2,900.

The Highlands in Topsham, ME

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They go above and beyond for the residents and they have lots of activities available for the residents. They gear the activities towards each resident and they even have field trips. I would recommend this community to others based on my experience.

Bay Square at Yarmouth
5.0

We chose Bay Square because it did not feel institutional, it had a more homey feel to it. They have all private rooms and it is more than adequate for what he needs. They have been so much like a family to us and treated him so well. The head of nursing is such a loving and caring person, he has gone above and beyond to help us through. He is a real gem. I would absolutely recommend to others looking, it is more expensive but you get what you pay for. They are not all about the money.

Ledgeview Assisted Living in Cumberland Foreside, ME
5.0

It's a smaller community and I feel the residence get more one-on-one attention. It's very homey, and they don't have a schedule with dining. if you want to eat early or late they will make things for you when you want them. It's very caring and nurturing. Communication is excellent and I would recommend this community to others. They have private furnished rooms and that made our move so easy.
