More about Piper Shores

Welcome to Piper Shores, Maine’s first and only nonprofit lifecare retirement community and the only retirement community in Maine to be accredited by CARF/CCAC.

Perched on the scenic coast of Southern Maine, Piper Shores is home to active people with a love for life, for ideas, for discussion, activity and engagement. Widely recognized as one of the best places to retire in Maine, Piper Shores offers comfortable surroundings and all the services and amenities you need to make life easy, enjoyable and stimulating. As a resident at one of Piper Shores’ cottages or apartments, you will have time for the important things: family, friends, favorite hobbies like fishing, gardening, golf, traveling, learning something new or simply relaxing. Work out in our fitness center, take a dip in our indoor pool, or grab a book from our library and settle in for a good read. Feeling creative? Take a stroll to our fully-equipped woodworking shop. Get outdoors and do some gardening, or, if the weather isn’t cooperating you can always take in a movie in our movie room. One of the great things about retiring is that you have more time for the interests and activities you enjoy most. Since Piper Shores has a bank on the property, along with a hair salon, a spa, and a convenience store, you spend less time in the car doing errands and more time doing what you like to do. Visit with new friends, pursue your hobbies and interests, take a dip in our indoor pool, hit the fitness center, movie room or arts and crafts center –and spend your day the way you want.

Owner's Story

Piper Shores is owned by Maine Life Care Retirement Community, Inc., a Maine nonprofit organization formed by a group of prominent Maine citizens with a shared vision. Together, these individuals created Maine’s first and only lifecare retirement community that promotes residents’ long-term wellbeing and health within a continuum of lifecare services.

Piper Shores of Scarborough, Maine is the realization of this ideal. Today, Piper Shores’ residents enjoy an independent lifestyle, a comfortable, secure environment with an oceanfront setting, a friendly community of like-minded neighbors, and onsite access to assisted living and skilled nursing care at the Holbrook all for one predictable monthly fee.
Piper Shores: A Historical Perspective

Completed in August 2001 on a beautiful 138-acre oceanfront setting, the architectural style of Piper Shores closely resembles that of the summer hotels that once graced the area. The exterior style of the main buildings, including 160 apartments and 40 independent living cottages (the latter completed in October of 2002), are influenced by John Calvin Stevens, Maine’s most famous architect.

In the summer of 2004, eight more private rooms were added to the Holbrook Health Center along with two more one-bedroom apartments in Assisted Living, bringing the total number of rooms to 40 and 20 respectively. A residents’ woodworking shop and community garden, was recently added in March 2005.
