Piper Shores

15 Piper Road, Scarborough, Maine 04074

Welcome to Piper Shores, Maine’s first and only nonprofit lifecare retirement community and the only retirement community in Maine to be accredited by CARF/CCAC. Perched on the scenic coast of Southern Maine, Piper Shores is home to active people with a love for life, for ideas, for discussion, activity, and engagement. Widely recognized as one of the best places to retire in Maine, Piper Shores offers comfortable surroundings and all the services and amenities you need to make life easy, enjoyable and stimulating. As a resident at one of Piper Shores’ cottages or apartments, you will have time for the important things: family, friends, favorite hobbies like fishing, gardening, golf, traveling, learning something new or simply relaxing. Work out in our fitness center, take a dip in our indoor pool, or grab a book from our library and settle in for a good read. Feeling creative? Take a stroll to our fully-equipped woodworking shop. Get outdoors and do some gardening, or, if the weather isn’t cooperating you can always take in a movie in our movie room. If you want to head farther afield, Piper Shores provides transportation to nearby Portland, a lovely, walkable city bustling with activities, events, shopping, and nationally acclaimed restaurants. Of course, transportation to medical appointments, nearby supermarkets, and special events is provided, as well. As a life care retirement community, Piper Shores provides residents with the peace of mind knowing that lifecare combines all the advantages of independent living plus priority access to on-site assisted living and skilled nursing care if needed. Lifecare at Piper Shores also means that you will always have a predictable monthly payment for assisted living and nursing home care. Unlike other retirement communities in Maine, Piper Shores’ entrance fee for independent living apartments and cottages is ninety percent (90%) refundable to residents or to their estates. One of the most important reasons seniors choose independent retirement living at Piper Shores is the assurance that as they age they can continue their active lifestyle and make their own decisions about how they want to spend their time. The Piper Shores lifecare retirement community offers a unique combination of services, onsite activities, and amenities that provide residents the opportunity to decide how they want to live. Residents choose between independent living cottages and apartments. Independent living residents choose whether to spend a relaxing afternoon in the library or garden or to play bocce on the oceanfront lawn, make furniture in the woodworking shop, plant flowers and vegetables in the community garden, go fishing, take a bike ride or play a few hands of bridge.
