Meals & Kitchen Facilities

 

We are grateful for the Comfort Food Memorial Fund established by the family of Dr. William F. Bergen. This allows us to provide nourishment to patient’s families and caregivers. Volunteers and staff may assist with meal preparation for patients and family members. Snacks and beverages are available in the dining room self-service area. Visitors are also permitted to bring food to keep in patient suites.

 

Visitor Information


Visiting Hours

We appreciate the vital role family and friends play in the care and comfort of our patients. We ask that everyone sign in at the front desk and children under the age of 12 be accompanied by an adult. Four visitors allowed in the building at a time per patient. Overnight visitors limited to one in certain circumstances as approved by the Medical Director and Manager. All guests should self-monitor symptoms. They should not be ill with colds, flu, sore throat, cough, or any contagious condition and must follow infection control policies. If a patient prefers to limit company, please let the nursing staff, or house volunteer know. They can help manage visitor flow. Visiting hours and regulations are subject to change along with current CDC guidelines.

TESTIMONIALS

What People Say About Us


“From the moment the Aroostook House of Comfort hospice team got involved, we felt such a load lifted from our shoulders. So many people were involved in so many helpful ways. Her medications, personal care, pain control. All the things that we could not adequately do anymore. She now had qualified, competent, caring, and gifted people to care for her. We are still so moved and touched by the kindness and compassion of everyone involved.”

 


Lillian Goughan

“My father lived at the Aroostook House of Comfort for 13 days before he passed. Dad and the family were welcomed on arrival. Dr. Jones was there to greet Dad and meet with the family. My father was treated every day with kindness and compassion. Our family felt welcome, and we were there daily. This is the most wonderful place, and we are so blessed to have it in our area.”
