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.

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!

Winterberry Heights Senior Living in Bangor, ME
4.2

Winterberry Heights is very close to our family making it easy to come and visit, but the reason they get a 4 out of 5 is because of staffing. We know its due to the pandemic, and to no fault of their own but they are short staffed. The activities do not apply to our loved one, but they do have activities for residents who choose to participate. The friendliness of the staff members really stood out to us initially.

  • Mobility assistance
  • Palliative and hospice care
  • Health care services
  • Complimentary transportation
  • 24-hour care and supervision
