Premier In-Home Care in Portland, Maine

Premier In-Home Care in Portland, Maine

Welcome to Home Care Assistance of Southern Maine – The premiere provider of non-medical in-home care for older adults. Whether enjoying Maine’s coast or snuggled up next to a nice fire at home we know that if you grew up in Maine, it is s a special place on the map. Our mission is to help “Change The Way The World Ages” one client at a time by helping seniors live WELL at HOME.

My name is Sue Arsenault, owner of Home Care Assistance of Southern Maine and I have a passion for people! I am especially grateful for the wisdom I have gained over the years from the Elders in my life. Seniors bring valuable insight and experience that they graciously pass down to the benefit of the generations after them. I believe it is a privilege and blessing to serve their changing needs in their senior years.

For Us, Elderly Care is Very Personal

I have personally experienced the heart break of having to move my dear grandma, against her will, out of her home of MANY years because of physical limitations she developed in her late 80’s. Living at home alone was no longer an option and, unfortunately, we never explored in-home care to keep her “aging in place”. Although moving to a new home is “ok” for some, I believe that my Grandma would have left this earth happier if she had that opportunity to remain in her home under the supervision of a Caregiver. A few years forward, after learning about caregiving in the home, my Great Aunt, who developed Alzheimer’s disease, was blessed by a relationship that she developed with a professional Caregiver. She brought my great Aunt calmness, safety and one on one LOVE in the comfort of her own home. Although it was difficult to see her progress into the late stages of the disease, we witnessed and were comforted by how the familiar environment of her own home made her overall battle with Alzheimer’s a little less daunting. What a gift! I am a true believer that “home is where the heart lives”.
