Home Care

Everyone can use a helping hand from time to time. The Highlands Service Plus (HSP) program bridges the gap between fully independent living and the need for higher levels of care.

HSP offers personal care services exclusively for our residents in their own home for an additional cost, with priority access given to cooperative homeowners. Our HSP team provides assistance with a variety of tasks from personal care to homemaking, to help residents maximize their independence and quality of life. HSP is certified by the Maine Department of Health & Human Services and staffed by our own employees overseen by a registered nurse.

Personal Care services may include assistance with:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Personal hygiene
  • Mobility
  • Eating

Companionship and Homemaking services may include:

  • Light housekeeping
  • Personal shopping
  • House sitting
  • Safety checks
  • Companionship
  • Sitting with an ill spouse
  • Pet sitting
  • Meal preparation

Home Care Costs

We understand that the cost of companionship and personal care services can be high. In an effort to provide individual support tailored to your needs at an affordable rate, the cost for Service Plus starts at $20 per hour. The fee will be billed in one-hour increments, and, for your convenience, this charge will be added automatically to your monthly bill.
