Nursing Homes in Maine

Overview of Nursing Homes 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.

There are more than 15 nursing homes in Maine. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of nursing homes in Maine to help you find the community that fits your needs and budget.

The median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in Maine is about $10,500, according to Genworth. The median monthly cost for a semi-private room in Maine is around $10,000.

I would say overall, our experience has been a positive one. We picked this one because of the price, and the fact that it was a nonprofit organization.
