What to Consider About Assisted Living in Cumberland Foreside

Cumberland Foreside is located in Cumberland Town, Maine, and includes the portion of the town that lies along the Atlantic Ocean. Cumberland Town has a population of 8,150 people, 16% of whom are aged 65 or older. For those seniors requiring assistance with the activities of daily living, there are two assisted living facilities in Cumberland Foreside and 21 more in the surrounding communities.

In Maine, including Cumberland Foreside, these facilities are licensed and regulated by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Licensing and Regulatory Services, and are known as residential care facilities (RCFs) and private non-medical institutions (PNMIs). 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cumberland Foreside

  • The cost of living in Cumberland Foreside is 175, which is much higher than the state average of 104 or the national average of 100. This is largely due to the cost of housing in the city, which is three times higher than the Maine housing cost average of 118. This may pose a challenge for family members moving to the area to be closer to loved ones in an assisted living facility.
  • Cumberland Foreside has a violent crime rate of 7.7, a third of the U.S. average: 22.7. The city's property crime rate is less than one-third of the U.S. average of 35.4. Despite the low crime rate, it's a good idea to ask what measures are taken to be residents safe while touring a facility.
  • Cumberland Foreside receives 49 inches of rain per year, compared to the U.S. average of 38 inches. The town also averages 65 inches of snow annually, almost 40 inches more than the national average of 28. Seniors may enjoy Cumberland Foreside's mild summers with July highs of 79, but January temperatures dip to 10 degrees, which may be uncomfortable for those sensitive to the cold.
  • Cumberland Foreside has an air quality rating of 80, much higher than the US average of 58. This means that seniors with respiratory ailments may breathe easier here than in similar communities across the country.
  • While Maine doesn't tax Social Security income, it does tax other forms of retirement income at rates as high as 7.15%. This may put a dent in the budget for families of seniors in assisted living facilities.
  • Cumberland Foreside has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Portland.
