Saint Joseph's Rehabilitation and Residence

Saint Joseph's Services

We do much more than simply take care of the physical needs of our residents. We protect them. We nurture them. We cheer them on toward their goals. In short, we love our residents and our compassionate care team takes care them as they would their own loved ones. Services include:

Approach to Care

Our goal is to provide maximum restoration of physical, mental, social and spiritual functioning through the use of a multi-disciplinary team approach to disability and disease. We aim to meet resident needs of self-esteem, affection, belonging, achievement, recognition, independence and hope. We understand the limitations imposed by the aging process and recognize that behavior changes can be a sign of compensation for loss of function. We believe that each resident should be treated with the honor, respect and reverence that is fitting to their dignity as a human being, regardless of sex, gender identity, race, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic or other backgrounds. We provide holistic care with as much restoration of body, mind and spirit as possible.

Daily Life

Our residents’ lives are full and varied. Each day we laugh together and enjoy each other’s company. We provide art lessons, cooking groups, fundraisers, bingo, cocktail parties, dance classes, gardening club, spa days, movie matinees, and of course our ever-popular weekly performances by local entertainers. We also take advantage of all that Portland has to offer with resident outings to a wide range of area events and attractions such as: scenic tours, Casco Bay cruises, Sea Dog games, state parks, local beaches, farmers’ markets, museums, and the Oxford Casino. All activities are facilitated by trained activity professionals.
