What People are Saying About Us

Birch Bay Village sends a bus to pick up my dad, and drops him back off at home each day. My dad has become friendly with the bus driver and is ready and waiting each day for his trip to your facility. Since attending dad’s health and emotional well-being have improved tremendously. Dad is much more independent, is more talkative, loves the staff and is much happier. The programs offers many activities to include games and music which he loves. He also loves the food especially the fruit. The best thing of all about Birch Bay Village is that I am able to go to work each day and be assured that my dear dad is receiving wonderful care and lots of love through the day care program.

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.
