about us

Your Life. Your Community.

There are two ways to look at retirement. Many seniors focus on the fact that they are growing older. At The Cedars Retirement Community, seniors choose to embrace each day as an opportunity to grow.

Our senior living community is designed to help you do just that. We laugh. We learn. Members and staff mingle together as friends. We place a focus on the things that most seniors recognize – often late in life – as truly the most important: our health, our minds, our spirit and purpose, friends and family.

Welcome to The Cedars, a retirement community in Portland, Maine, offering the full continuum of care for every potential stage in your life, including Independent Living, Assisted Living, Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Care.

Your quality of life, your legacy, and how you will be remembered is reflected in the choices you make and how you live from now on. So choose to live in a place that gives you every opportunity to live life to the fullest.
