Description of The Highlands

Tucked away in the historic district of Topsham in scenic Midcoast Maine, The Highlands is a vibrant retirement community offering a range of senior living options from independent and assisted living to memory care. Our wooded, 75-acre campus is just across the Androscoggin River from Brunswick and Bowdoin College, and is less than 25 miles from the many attractions, amenities and services of Portland, Maine.

Providing peace of mind to seniors for over 20 years, The Highlands is proud to call Midcoast Maine home. Consistently named one of the best places to retire, the area is rich with culture, art, recreational opportunities and abundant natural resources.

Featured Amenities

Independent living is available at our new Independence Plus apartments and also at The Main Lodge at The Highlands. Seniors may choose from private one- and two-bedroom apartment floor plans and enjoy maintenance-free retirement living on a monthly rental basis.

Residents are encouraged to participate in our many daily activities, such as yoga, tai chi, billiards games, ping pong, book groups, personal fitness training, hiking on our community nature trails or golfing at the Highland Green Golf Club. Our heated, indoor swimming pool is also open for recreational swimming and water aerobics.

Available Services

Cadigan Lodge houses The Highlands' state-of-the-art assisted living residence where seniors enjoy the convenience and privacy of one-bedroom homes with a kitchen and en-suite bathroom. Next door is our new Governor King Community which provides cutting-edge memory care for seniors facing the challenges of Alzheimer's and dementia.

Residents of our supported living programs enjoy 24-hour care and supervision from professional staff who are available to help with daily life activities such as dressing, bathing and managing personal medications. Daily meal service, transportation, housekeeping, linen and laundry service are also provided.

At The Highlands in Midcoast Maine, we offer seniors a retirement lifestyle full of choices.
