Bank donates $45,000 to dementia care centers

Norway Savings Bank has given $45,000 to support Southern Maine Agency on Aging’s project to create two new day centers in Falmouth and Biddeford for adults with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, as well as advanced support for family caregivers.

The Falmouth center, to be named the Stewart Adult Day Center, will be located in the former Lunt School building and is being developed in partnership with the OceanView community.

The 4,200-square-foot facility will serve up to 25 clients per day and is expected to open in early summer.

The Biddeford Adult Day Center will be a purpose-built, state-of-the-art 10,000-square-foot building on Barra Road and will serve up to 50 dementia clients each day. That project is expected to open in early 2015.


Both centers will have a transformational impact on people living with dementia and their caregivers, offering respite for caregivers and evidence-based therapeutic programs for those with dementia.
