Located on the island of North Haven, one of the Fox Islands in Midcoast Maine, Southern Harbor House was founded on the belief that elders should remain part of their community.
We seek to create a comfortable, safe and nurturing environment for community elders who would otherwise be displaced from their island homes in the absence of caregiving resources. Our philosophy is fundamentally based in the essential qualities of our close-knit community and focuses on person-centerd care.
Southern Harbor House is surrounded by picturesque harbor views, rolling meadows and is situated in close proximity to town, which supports community and resident engagement in social activites occurring at Southern Harbor House and elsewhere in town.

THANK YOU, DAVE!
