Question: I am alone and have no one to care for me. I wish your centers were nearby but there aren't any near my home in Maine. What can I do?
Dr. Amy: If Home Instead Senior Care is not available where you live, you can call 1-877-353-3771 from anywhere in Maine. This telephone number will connect you to the Area Agency on Aging that serves the area in which you live. Area Agencies on Aging are part of the state government's Health and Human Services department. Their goal is to ensure that older people receive support so that they can maintain their independence and dignity in the community.
