Planning for a Retirement Move

Planning for retirement and considering a move to a retirement village? Summer in Maine is the right time to start your search. Sunny skies and longer days are perfect for a road trip and exploring the many retirement opportunities all around our state. Here are a few things to consider:


Want to be near the water? Near the mountains? Closer to a city? Out in the country? Maine literally has it all in terms of locales — and Dirigo Pines is set right in the middle of it all. It’s a hop, skip and jump to the ocean, the mountains of western Maine, the great outdoors in northern Maine, or the more metropolitan areas of southern Maine.


As you scout various retirement communities, what they have to offer beyond room and board should be considered. If you’re moving to a new town, making new friends will be important — at Dirigo Pines we offer daily activities and social groups. From the “Out to Lunch Bunch” to yoga classes to cribbage clubs, there’s something for everyone and every interest. And did we mention our miles of walking trails, stocked fishing ponds, putting green, connection with the nearby University of Maine, library, and gourmet dining? The list goes on and on!


Aging into retirement sometimes means aging into some new healthcare issues. Planning ahead for what the years might bring is easy at Dirigo Pines, where we offer on-site geriatric care, podiatry, physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy services. Working with area hospitals, Dirigo Pines offers a depth of medical expertise to all residents. The Inn provides independent and assisted living opportunities, as well as memory care and specialized care. Learn more about our Assisted Living services here.
