At MaineHealth, we offer nursing homes in three beautiful locations – two in Maine and one in New Hampshire -- that provide the highest standards of care and security, along with the comforts of home. Residents get the compassionate care they need. Families have confidence and peace of mind in their decision.

Quality care with the comforts of home

Learn about the nursing home care offered through the MaineHealth system:

 

A nursing home is a facility for residents who don't need to be in a hospital but cannot receive adequate and proper care at home. Nursing homes generally have nursing aides and highly-trained registered nurses available 24 hours a day. Residents are able to receive medical care and rehabilitation therapy in a home-like setting. Some nursing homes specialize in care for patients with memory problems such as Alzheimer's disease.
