Independent Living in Maine

Maine's variety of independent living communities and retirement communities help their residents maintain their active daily life while offering assistance and other support services. These communities are exclusive to seniors, offering residents an apartment or private place to live while also providing community resources and amenities to meet their residents’ needs. Communities are located throughout the state, including in cities like Portland. The average cost of residence in an independent living community in the state of Maine ranges from $2200-$3000 each month, though this cost can vary based on the services and amenities offered by a given facility.

 

Independent Living and Other Senior Care Options

People interested in independent living communities should understand the difference between these facilities and other senior care options. Some families would prefer to help seniors age in place with "home care" services, either professionally hired or given by a family member. However, independent living is designed to help seniors keep active and connect with others their age on a daily basis. Independent living facilities may be easier than home care, as the facility often offers dining options on-site and maintains the apartments and community resources. Individuals searching for memory care or skilled nursing care may prefer a skilled nursing facility or memory care home. Care offered by staff members in these locations is more comprehensive than in an independent living facility, and these facilities may offer on-site treatment options for residents with complex medical histories, disabilities, or memory loss. Each senior care facility is unique, and families and seniors searching for a senior care solution should compare the amenities and programs offered by each individual location.
