Blue Hill -

BLUE HILL – Friendship Cottage Adult Day Service Program in Blue Hill has openings for new participants. The program provides activities, meals and personal care for older adults who may be physically, mentally or functionally impaired. Our team of trained professionals and volunteers provides safe, fun and stimulating activities to move the body and stimulate the mind. A certified nursing assistant is on-staff to make sure medications are taken on time and at the proper dosage.

Friendship Cottage has contacts with the Veterans Administration, MaineCare, and Elder Independence of Maine and Office of Elder Services (Section 61) for those who need assistance paying fees. Attendance is based on a 4 hours minimum. The program is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. There is no waiting period to begin using the service and we do offer a free trial day to those who are considering participation. Free transportation can be arranged for most of the Blue Hill Peninsula and some other areas.

Friendship Cottage is located at 118 Ellsworth Road (Route 172) in Blue Hill. For information, call 374-5612 or visit the website at www.friendshipcottage.org.
