I am a friend or relative of a resident
Deer Isle Nursing Home has a very beautiful location in Coastal Maine, surrounded by semi- forest. There are garden areas designed for residents to relax in, but rarely is it used. A few old time songs constantly play in rotation over the intercom, which my grandmother is not fond of. Harsh lighting and bland decor make it a rather dreary place to visit, but there are splashes of life in some of the original paintings that line the hallways. One of the worst aspects of this place is the terrible food, whos quality is comparable to a school lunch menu on a tight budget. As far as I can tell, though, the staff are considerate of the residents, and try to make it as amusing a place to live as possible. There are regularly sing alongs, coffee hour, exercising, board games as well as a beauty salon, resident cats and birds, and therapeutic dogs who visit. People seem to enjoy the dogs a lot. A bus also caters to the residents of the nursing home, bring competent seniors to the surrounding areas of Blue Hill and Bangor. This is an important service when considering the somewhat isolated, rural location and the inevitable boredom of living in what amounts to a hospital hotel.
