    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Falmouth

    Just to the north of Maine's largest city, Portland, the scenic town of Falmouth in Cumberland County is home to one of the state's largest anchorages. It's located on beautiful Casco Bay with ferry-connected islands and famous lighthouses. Assisted living in Falmouth comes complete with fresh sea air, postcard-quality views and a stable, affluent older population with a median age of 47.6.

    There are six assisted living facilities in the town of Falmouth and 23 in the nearby Portland area. Cumberland County has 89, the largest number in the state. Maine's Department of Health and Human Services sets specific standards for assisted living facilities, including the requirement that a new resident must have a care plan developed within 30 days of admission.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Falmouth

    • Falmouth has moderate summers but fairly cold winters with temperatures well below freezing and snowfall above the national average, which may limit outdoor activities.
    • The cost of living in Falmouth is well above the national average, mostly driven by the price of housing. Other costs are close to average. The greater Portland area has plenty of places to shop for groceries and personal items, which is not always true in the sparsely populated state of Maine.
    • The Portland area has several volunteer-based transportation organizations such as ITN plus medical transportation options and ADA paratransit for the mobility impaired. The greater Portland METRO transit system serves Falmouth and surrounding communities.
