Thu, 01/07/2021 - 3:00pm

    The Lincoln Home recognizes the growing desire for seniors to have a short-term stay option for a variety of needs.  Executive Director Lorrie Winslow has been instrumental in upgrading a beautifully appointed apartment with an incredible view of the Damariscotta River. New paint, flooring,  bathroom and kitchenette, along with upscale furniture and local art, create a cozy haven to witness the ever-changing moods of the river and sky.

    Seasonal winter stays provide seniors with social connection and activities, free from home responsibilities, isolation, driving and risk of falls. Summer short-term stays are popular with seniors whose families may be vacationing here, or a chance for a Maine, all inclusive get away. Post-surgery recovery stays at Lincoln Home provide optimal opportunities for  recuperation, and can be less expensive than in-home care, Skilled Nursing or Rehabilitation Centers. Short-term visitors enjoy all the amenities and activities full time residents engage in. Locally sourced, creative cuisine is enjoyed in a riverside dining room. Personalized care plans and medication management are coordinated with on staff RN and team of caregivers. Transportation to medical appointments, housekeeping and laundry services ensure a complete stay of respite and relaxation.
