Woodlands Memory Care of Bridgton, the first purpose-built memory care community in the western Lakes Region, is set to welcome its first residents. 

“There is nothing more important to families than making sure their loved ones are given high quality care close to home and near their family and friends,” said Matthew Walters, managing member of Woodlands Senior Living. “The Lakes Region now has a purpose-built memory care community, which means it is specifically built to serve the unique needs of individuals living with memory impairment." 

The center, saddled with rising construction costs and a difficult labor market when it broke ground in 2021, cost around $10 million to build. 

The 48-bed, 24,000-square-foot Bridgton facility features 16 private rooms and 16 shared rooms, and will employ more than 30 staff members. 

The building's architect is Peter Bethanis and the contractor is Senior Spec Construction LLC in Gardiner. Amenities include abundant natural light, home-scaled areas for resident engagement and safety systems.

Woodlands Senior Living, a family-owned and -operated business based in Waterville, started in 1980 with a 39-resident boarding home in Hallowell. The organization has since grown to include 16 communities in 10 locations, including the new Bridgton center.

Woodlands Memory Care of Bridgton is the company's second location in Cumberland County. The Bridgton location includes an onsite beauty salon, a physical and occupational therapy area, and a large outside courtyard.

As with its affiliated communities, Woodlands Memory Care of Bridgton will accept both private-paying and MaineCare-eligible individuals and families.

Woodlands Senior Living was recently included in the 2022 Argentum & Lument Largest Providers Report, which provides data and information on 150 of the largest senior living providers in the United States. Woodlands was ranked No. 131 on the list, and is the only Maine-based senior living provider included in the list.

The company was also honored in 2021 with the Large Business of the Year Award from the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce.
