Adult Programs in Rangeley Maine
HELP – Helping Elders Live in Place
HELP – Helping Elders Live in Place is comprised of active and eager volunteers and staff who are committed to providing exceptional services to our senior population.

For more information on any of our senior services, please call Joanne Dickson, Behavioral Health Coordinator, at 207-670-5236
Functional Fitness for Seniors
Our low intensity strength and balancing class is offered year round at the Rangeley Health and Wellness Fitness Center. These free classes provide active instruction for both the senior population and those in the rehab program. Classes are held Monday and Wednesday at 10:15am.
HELP Neighbors Calling Neighbors
Neighbors Calling Neighbors provides a daily phone call to seniors who appreciate a daily check-in and contact with a caring person. Our HELP volunteer callers have received training in listening skills and are able to make connections for additional help when it is appropriate providing important links for these isolated individuals. Volunteer callers have paired students from the high school Interact Club (Rotary) with seniors needing chores done such as bringing the wood in or weeding the garden. This relationship is very rewarding and beneficial to both young and old alike. For more information on this service, please call Joanne at 207-670-5236
HARC – HELP Adult Respite Care
The HELP Adult Respite Care Program (HARC) provides needed aid for caregivers by creating a safe place where cognitively challenged seniors can participate in activities designed specifically to enrich their daily lives. Typically this program runs every Wednesday from 11-3 throughout the year in the lower level of the Rangeley Family Medicine Facility. If you are in need of support services, please call program coordinator Heidi Nute at 917-607-8779.
