Augusta-area assisted living facility announces closure

June 22, 2024

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services Division of Licensing and Certification tells Maine’s Total Coverage that it was notified by Capitol City Manor on Thursday morning that it planned to close.

The facility on State Street in Augusta is a 29-bed residential care facility run by DLTC Healthcare and Bella Point. As of Thursday morning, 17 people were living there.

The state did not provide a reason for the voluntary closure. Maine’s Total Coverage has reached out to Capitol City Manor for more information.

In the last decade, more than two dozen nursing homes or long-term care facilities have closed in Maine. Earlier this year, the Maine Health Care Association earlier introduced theĀ “Who Will Care” coalition, urging lawmakers to fill an estimated $100 million funding (state and federal) shortfall.
