Welcome to Piper Shores, Maine’s first and only nonprofit lifecare retirement community and the only retirement community in Maine to be accredited by CARF/CCAC.
Perched on the scenic coast of Southern Maine, Piper Shores is home to active people with a love for life, for ideas, for discussion, activity and engagement. Widely recognized as one of the best places to retire in Maine, Piper Shores offers comfortable surroundings and all the services and amenities you need to make life easy, enjoyable and stimulating. As a resident at one of Piper Shores’ cottages or apartments, you will have time for the important things: family, friends, favorite hobbies like fishing, gardening, golf, traveling, learning something new or simply relaxing. Work out in our fitness center, take a dip in our indoor pool, or grab a book from our library and settle in for a good read. Feeling creative? Take a stroll to our fully-equipped woodworking shop. Get outdoors and do some gardening, or, if the weather isn’t cooperating you can always take in a movie in our movie room.
As a lifecare retirement community, Piper Shores provides residents with the peace of mind knowing that lifecare combines all the advantages of independent living plus priority access to onsite assisted living and skilled nursing care, if needed. Lifecare at Piper Shores also means that you will always have a predictable monthly payment for assisted living and nursing home care. Unlike other retirement communities in Maine, Piper Shores’ entrance fee for independent living apartments and cottages is ninety percent (90%) refundable to residents or to their estates.
