Your gift to The Cedars supports new advances

Advancing Clinical Excellence
The Cedars Skilled Nursing was one of only 500 programs nationwide recognized by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement as an Age-Friendly Health System Committed to Care Excellence, a national initiative to improve quality of care for older adults.

Advancing Programs and Services for Residents
Our boldest innovation yet—the Sam L. Cohen Households, Maine and New England’s very first Households—sets a new standard for our region by providing person-centered care with all the comforts and choices that make a true home.

Advancing Research:
The Cedars partnered with the University of New England (UNE) in a groundbreaking study of people living with dementia to explore best practices for engagement and growth, and to change perceptions about memory loss.

Advancing Workforce Development
The Cedars joined the Harold Alfond Center for Advancement of Maine’s Workforce, Jobs for Maine Graduates, and Southern Maine Community College in a pilot program for students facing barriers to education, offering new Mainers and new graduates a successful career in healthcare.
