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 everchanging 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.
