Long Term Care

Aroostook Health Center, TAMC's long term care facility, takes a holistic approach to providing care. This includes creating a plan of care that fits the unique needs of every resident, including the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of health.

Our Rehabilitation Program allows residents to relearn activities of daily living, recover sooner, and regain the ability to care for themselves upon returning home. Our rehabilitation services will help to bridge the gap between hospital and home.

We also care for residents who can no longer perform everyday tasks, such as eating, bathing, or getting dressed. We understand that losing independence due to illness or injury can be a very difficult adjustment. We work very hard to help ease the transition for our residents and their families through a supportive, team approach.
