Is Schooner Cove Right for You?
With so many retirement communities and senior living options to choose from, how can you know what is right for you? Schooner Cove is part of a complete continuum of care through the LincolnHealth – Miles Campus and MaineHealth.
As an independent living community, Schooner Cove is designed for seniors able to manage the activities of daily living by themselves.
