Eldercare Services

We have provided long-term care and medical services to senior citizens since 1967, when we were the first in the state to do so.  Currently, SMHC operates four eldercare facilities in Sanford, Maine that include:

The Newton Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care

The Newton Center is a 74-bed licensed skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility certified by both Medicare and Medicaid (MaineCare). Dedicated staff provide high quality care to residents and our programs foster family and community involvement and education, and stress care, compassion, respect, and dignity. Services include: physical, occupational and speech therapy; wound care; skilled nursing care; IV therapy; discharge planning; and 24-hour nursing.  In addition we have a very enthusiastic Activities department that plans not only daily activities but day trips as well!

The Newton Center also offers an exceptional short-term skilled rehabilitation program; for more information, please click here.
