What People are Saying About Us

I want to acknowledge the wonderful care my loved one received. During our respite stay, our loved one left in much improved physical health then on arrival. The Admissions Coordinator's time and effort getting me through the registration and introduction was appreciated in what was a difficult time for me. Without exception, the staff is caring, competent and very pleasant. The head nurse is capable and compassionate. It was a joy to see the reaction your Music Therapist got from the residents with her wonderful music. I have great respect for the exceptional care given by the staff. My experience with staff and residents, be it brief, was very pleasant and memorable experience. They are truly missed.

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.
