After a careful and thorough search, the Board of Directors of Lincoln Home have chosen Lorrie Winslow to be the new executive director. Winslow brings 15 years experience overseeing the operations of residential and rehabilitation settings in Maine and New Hampshire. A Maine native, Winslow grew up in Waterboro, worked, and raised her two children in southern Maine. Her roots run deep, coming from 10 generations of strong, Maine women. Because of her background, she is devoted to embracing the integrity of Maine principles: supporting community, giving back and promoting local businesses. Having worked in both for profit and non-profit businesses, she is happy to be back in a not for profit setting because of this connection to community.
After meeting with the board, Winslow was very impressed with their commitment to the mission of Lincoln Home and its long-standing history of providing quality care for 93 years. She was inspired by the pledge to provide a vibrant way of life to seniors, and the Lincoln Home’s long standing relationship with the Midcoast community. Lorrie cited the community efforts expended for the success of the annual Lobster & More fundraising events. All proceeds support the Residents’ Assistance Fund established for residents who have outlived their resources to remain at Lincoln Home. She hopes to provide more fun events to engage the public and collaborate with local talent.
Winslow looks forward to building on the strengths and solid foundation of Lincoln Home by connecting with and giving back to the villages of Newcastle and Damariscotta. Her philosophy is to foster independence and provide opportunities for seniors to experience a new, enhanced chapter in living. She looks forward to connecting with local businesses to explore options on ways to promote all the Midcoast lifestyle has to offer.
Lorrie and her husband, David Hurd, have moved to Bath for the winter, giving them time to explore the Midcoast prior to settling permanently. They love to kayak, cook, dine out, shop and support local.
The Lincoln Home offers independent and assisted living choices, memory care at Harbor View Cottage, or assistance at home through One2One Care. Located on the Damariscotta River, at 22 River Road, Newcastle, this small, independent community is currently home to 39 residents and staffed by over 70.
