Neighbors

The most established, trusted, and reliable provider of elder care services in Maine.

Established in 1990, Neighbors assists the elderly allowing them to maintain their independence and remain in their own residences. Today, Neighbors is a thriving non-medical companion care agency with local owners, one full-time manager, and 75 employees who serve almost 300 clients. Our success hinges on hiring capable, caring workers to provide a range of services affordable to clients. We provide workers for a variety of “neighborly” non-medical tasks such as companion care, appointments, errands, and bookkeeping.

Our services include all the tasks families, friends and neighbors once offered each other as members of the same community. However, as families disperse, friends age, and neighboring families spend more time working, elders increasingly find themselves without traditional communal support. Neighbors strives to be that supportive and helpful community.

Serving Brunswick and the surrounding Mid Coast communities of Topsham, Bath, Freeport, Woolwich, Phippsburg, Georgetown, Arrowsic, Harpswell and Bowdoinham.
