Do you accept MaineCare?
Yes, we accept MaineCare in our Assisted Living program. 75 State Street requires 18 months of private pay before a MaineCare Payer source conversion. Initial MaineCare openings are based on availability and cannot be guaranteed. Currently, there is a 2+ year waiting list. Residents must meet financial and health care guidelines set forth by Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to qualify for MaineCare. For more information about MaineCare and applying for financial assistance for residential care services, please visit the DHHS website.
Are nurses available 24 hours a day?
In Assisted Living, nursing staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Is there a nursing home at 75 State Street?
No, 75 State Street offers Independent Living and Assisted Living. We have long-standing working relationships with a number of area nursing homes and will assist our residents and their families in finding a nursing home or memory care, if needed.
When will a resident have to move from 75 State Street?
When an Assisted Living resident’s care needs reach a skilled nursing facility level or the resident requires specialized memory care, we begin the process of finding alternative placement with the resident and/or their family.
In Independent Living, service planning meetings are held twice each year to determine whether residents would benefit from additional a la cart care services or if a transfer to Assisted Living is needed.
Why would someone not be accepted as a resident at 75 State Street?
While we offer a comprehensive care community, it is not the right setting for everyone. We assist all applicants in making an informed choice about moving to 75 State Street. Working together through the admission process, we will determine our ability to meet an applicant’s needs.
How is the food?
Most residents tell us that the meals are excellent, with varied choices, flexible offerings, and locally-sourced ingredients when available. Our menus change daily and seasonally and are prepared by a team of trained professionals under the guidance of our Executive Chef.
What is the average age of residents?
Ages range from 60’s to centenarians, with an average of 83. But remember, attitude is everything and age is just a number!
What is the ratio of men to women?
Our male-to-female ratio aligns with the national average with approximately 30% men and 70% women.
Is there a lease or buy-in?
No. We have found that our residents prefer the month-to-month rental option and the ability to maintain management of their funds.
How soon could we move in?
The admission process is quite simple. Once you complete an application, submit a history and physical report from your primary care physician, and participate in an informal admission meeting, we are able to determine your eligibility. If there is a suitable apartment available, you could move in that day!
Is there parking for residents or their guests?
Yes. Residents who bring their vehicle and remain in compliance with our community parking policies have an assigned parking spot. Guests can park in any non-designated parking space in any of our three parking lots, two on Gray St. and a third on Danforth. You can also find on-street parking on the surrounding block.
Are pets allowed?
Absolutely! We even have doggie cookies available at our concierge desk. Pets are welcome at 75 State Street as long as residents remain in compliance with our community pet policy.
