About Us

Northern Light Home Care & Hospice is a non-profit organization providing direct, personalized care throughout Maine - from South Portland to Fort Kent.

Our roots in Maine date back to 1912. Since then, beginning in 2006, we have merged all of our homecare and hospice agencies under one umbrella, completing a full, statewide merger in 2015. We made this move to make our offerings more accessible for you, when and where you need them.

We are committed to making visits to those at home who are recovering from illness and surgery, and have added Hospice and other programs to help those who prefer to spend their remaining days in the comfort of their own home. We continue with public health nursing by offering immunization clinics, adult health clinics, and education and awareness events for all ages. 

Throughout the homecare system, our clinicians make in excess of 160,000 in-home visits each year caring for an average of 1,400 people on any given day. An additional 4,000 individuals are cared for in health and wellness clinics.

Our dedicated team consists of:

  • Nurses
  • ​Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists
  • Home Health Aides
  • Medical Social Workers

Each homecare site is Medicare Certified and state licensed.
