Assisted Living Specializing in Memory Care

We know the challenges families face when someone you care about is coping with memory impairment. The name, Avita, which translates to “for life,” was inspired by our desire to create a safe and fulfilling environment where nurturing caregivers recognize each resident as a special and unique individual with varied wants and needs. Just because an individual may be coping with physical challenges or memory impairment does not mean they have lost their spirit. Our goal is simple – to make a positive difference in people’s lives by creating a special place where residents can thrive, and families can have peace of mind.

Many Avita’s residents and their families are originally local to southern Maine and seacoast New Hampshire. We proudly serve the greater Wells community.

Avita Memory Care
After the passing of our father, we were faced with the reality that our mother, who has dementia, could not live on her own. Avita of Wells was recommended as the best place in our area. Now, less than two months into this massive transition, our mother is doing so well, making friends, engaging in the daily activities in the community, and always telling us how wonderful the folks are there who take care of her.
