Northland Living Center
Located in the beautiful Moose River Valley of Jackman, Maine, Northland Living Center is considered one of the top rated ICF/MR facilities in the state. Known for its person-centered care and family-like environment, Northland Living Center provides residential and habilitative services, skills training and adjunctive therapies with 24-hour nursing supervision. All staff are devoted to ensuring each resident residing at Northland Living Center will expand and maintain their highest level of independence in communication skills, activities of daily living and social skills. Upon admission residents and their families become a part of a unique, extended family. We work together with the families to identify and develop the best learning methods that are unique to each individual.
Upon entering the facility it is evident that each individual that considers Northland their home has a special place to live. Each bedroom is specifically designed for that individual. The open dining and living areas help to accommodate unrestricted movement. The large deck, raised gardens, and open back yard help to make this facility as home-like as possible. The meals are prepared by a professional baker, often using home grown vegetables and herbs, right from the facility gardens.
Northland’s off-site Program Center is yet another way to offer a full continuum of care. At the Program Center, residents have the opportunity to work on fundamental life skills to enhance their social skills in the community. Northland Program Center focuses on self enrichment, physical fitness, self awareness and motivation, and addresses sensory, motor and psychological needs. Respite Care is one of the newest services Northland Living Center has to offer based upon bed availability. Respite Care provides families with temporary relief from the demands of providing ongoing care. We can offer this on a short or long term basis depending on the needs of the individual.
The staff are aware of the importance of continued integration with family and friends outside of the facility. Many trips are planned to bring individuals to family functions, appointments or just for a visit. Many outside activity trips are planned to include, camping, Special Olympics, going to the beach and even trips to Disney land have been enjoyed.
