What People are Saying About Us

The Safe Harbor Memory Care Program at Birch Bay Village, provides my mother the care and support she needs living with Alzheimer’s. The small size of Safe Harbor, and the dedicated, loving and caring commitment by staff were key features when choosing Birch Bay. The Life Enrichment Program allows her to enjoy the things she loves- baking, gardening and more! Her regular routine includes Music Therapy which really enchances her quality of life. Thanks to Birch Bay Village, I have been able to enjoy time with my mom without the moment to moment responsibility for her care.

Bar Harbor Living

The dramatic granite coastline, the smell of sea salt in the air, the thrum of lobster boats in the harbors – this is quintessential Maine, as relaxing or as busy as you choose to make it. Whether you’re seeking the tranquility of an off-season walk on the winding roads of Acadia National Park, or the bustle of the Island in mid-summer, you’ll be happy to call it home.
