Bigger and Better in Biddeford

OCTOBER 1, 2015 (Scarborough, ME) – This summer the Southern Maine Agency on Aging started construction on the Biddeford Adult Day Center. The 10,500 square foot, purpose-built center will double our capacity for care and allow us to offer the same person-centered programming that is currently being implemented at the Stewart Center in Falmouth.

It will be easily accessible from both Turnpike Exit 32 and Route 111. This location will help expand our service area to better serve members and families from Kennebunk to Scarborough.

We are thankful for the tremendous support the Agency has received throughout this Campaign, enabling us to open the Stewart Center last October and to start construction on the Biddeford Center. Fundraising is ongoing as the Agency strives to open the Biddeford Center debt-free by the end of 2015. In addition to the $5 million construction phase of the Campaign, the Agency will raise an additional $1 million for an endowment fund that will help ensure access to the Centers for people of all income levels, and to protect and enhance our programs and services now and in the future.

The Center is currently expected to open in late 2015 and the Agency looks forward to celebrating that occasion with our members and their families, our supporters, and our local communities.
