The Meadows is a home-style living center for self-sufficient seniors, a place where residents call it more than comfortable living — they call it home.

Whether you walk in as a resident or a visitor, you are welcomed with warm smiles and the aroma of a homemade meal and desserts escaping from the kitchen.

Life at the Meadows is self-directed and all residents have the freedom to come and go as they please, choosing to be private, socially active or both. The facility, located on a country setting in Greene, has 25 spacious rooms, available in two different sizes where each member or couple enjoys their own private bathroom, 24-hour emergency call button service, as well as laundry facilities. Also included in the low monthly price are three delicious meals.

Being able to socialize with people is an important part of many peoples’ lives and The Meadows has many common areas to enjoy such as a TV and game room, computer room, library, sewing room, outdoor patios and an in-house beauty salon where all the gossip can be found. These amenities also allow residents to maintain healthy lifestyles encouraged by movement and socializing with their peers.

Just six miles from downtown Lewiston-Auburn, individuals may engage in scheduled events along with outside excursions such as shopping and dining as well as transportation to nearby appointments.

The Meadows is privately owned and managed by Rebecca Laliberte and her promise to provide exceptional experiences every day.

“Senior living options are important and many times people tour The Meadows and say they are not ready yet,” said Laliberte. “But the saddest thing to hear is ‘I wish I would have come sooner; I’m having so much fun now and it’s everything I’ve ever needed.’”

Laliberte is dedicated to providing a warm, caring and safe, living atmosphere as well. The ground-level facility is fully equipped with handicapped accessibility, ramps, railings and other items to meet the needs of each resident. For extra safety measures, The Meadows also has an all-encompassing generator and sprinkler system. And, although The Meadows is a private residence and not a nursing home, Laliberte lives onsite for 24-hour emergencies.

Living at The Meadows is similar to living at home with all the play and none of the work. Instead of mowing lawns and shoveling snow, residents are found gathered around the card table or dining at a local restaurant; feeding the goats or shopping at the mall; researching on the computer or competing in a pool tournament.

Room rates at The Meadows fit anyone’s budget and preference for singles or couples and start at just $900. All room prices include three, home-cooked meals a day, a 24-hour snack and cereal bar, housekeeping and linen services as well as weekly transportation.
