Any of the packages of Short-Term Stays may be for Independent or Assisted Living. We have packages for individuals or couples. Friends choosing to be roommates may also enjoy our short term stays.
Short-Term Stays after surgery promote optimal health recovery in beautiful surroundings.
Medicare will no longer cover post-surgery care for many procedures such as hip and knee replacements if you do not have other medical complications. However, what if you feel unsafe discharging directly to your own home? A short-term stay in The Lincoln Home gives you a safe and comfortable alternative.

Short-term Stays are affordable and cost-effective
A short-term stay in The Lincoln Home is like staying in a lovely hotel resort for a vacation, with health care support as you need it for optimal recovery. The cost for this luxury level of care support is surprisingly affordable, less than you would pay for a modest vacation.
Short-term stays at The Lincoln Home are much less expensive than In-home care, Skilled Nursing Centers, or Rehabilitation Centers.
If you receive a Home Health prescription from your doctor for physical therapy, that service can be provided right here in your temporary home… The Lincoln Home.
Three to Four Month Seasonal Stays are a popular choice during both the winter and summer months.
Local Maine residents may choose an easier winter free from the responsibility of managing a home. They may choose to be free from the isolation that can occur during the long winter months. Another consideration is reducing the risk of accidental falls that can cause significant changes in one’s quality of life. The choice of short term living in beautiful surroundings with fine dining can be a great enhancement to your enjoyment of the winter months. The Lincoln Home is well known for engaging and enriching social activities
Families from out-of-state may choose short-term summer stays at The Lincoln Home for their aging parents. This allows families to get together for good times at their local home or cottage, with parents joining their families any time they wish. Short-term residents love the health care and safety support that comes with elegant living in the Lincoln Home on the shore of the beautiful Damariscotta River. Damariscotta Village is within easy walking distance, and there is an incredible variety of fun local summer activities, including our hugely popular Lobster Bake in August.
