News!

After 31 years Brunswick Area Respite Care is evolving, we have moved our office to an expandable location in Bath. Our new space also houses our program space!

We will be doing business as Bath-Brunswick Respite Care

and have a new logo to commemorate this evolution.

Our physical office space is located at 9 Park St., Bath, Maine – inside the old Bath Hospital. Our mailing address has changed to PO Box 668, Bath, ME 04530. We hope to see you soon.

In March 2020 we made the decision to temporarily close our doors due to COVID19. We struggled with this decision, for the fact that adult day services and caregiver support groups are critical for families living with the challenges of dementia. However, our common civic responsibility is to keep you, your children, our staff and our community safe and healthy at this time.

 

We opened the doors at our second site in Bath, Maine on September 9th!  The very large Bath site affords us the ability to have multiple activities with CDC recommended social distancing. We welcome you to call and set up a time to come visit.

 

Take care and be safe. Nancy Herk, Executive Director

 

"Because of your fine program, Dad got the social interaction he so enjoyed and Mom got a much needed break from the demands of caring for him."
