Scarborough was the third of our six multi-service facilities. Opening in July of 1990, it is located in an urban setting on the outskirts of Portland. Inside the facility you will find 24 hour RN coverage in four separate nursing units: a 40 bed rehabilitation and skilled nursing care unit, a 40 bed long-term care unit, a 40 bed secured unit for residents with Alzheimer/Dementia and other related dementias and a 30 bed residential care unit designed to meet the needs of those in the early stages of dementia. The focus is on returning the resident to their home and community, whenever possible.
