Help People with Dementia Enjoy Enriched, Fulfilled Lives

Are you a committed care professional who wants to make a profound difference in the lives of those affected by dementia? Are you frustrated by the limitations of care you can provide in medically based institutions, where there’s just not enough help to go around?

At The Vicarage by the Sea, we believe that life doesn’t end with a dementia diagnosis. We make it our business to ensure that each resident is celebrated, with the freedom to enjoy daily life and continue working on their cherished passions. Every resident is different and receives the care and enrichment that best suits them and their lifestyle.

That’s why so many employees of The Vicarage have stated that coming to work isn’t like coming to a workaday job. Many have compared it to coming home — to a comforting, beautiful environment, filled with plenty of positive energy and love. And with a 1-4 staff-resident ratio, elder caregivers can focus their time and attention on each resident and their specific needs — getting to know them on a deeper level while providing them with the highest-quality care. 

Enjoy Working in a Spectacular Setting on Curtis Cove

Our beautiful facility is set on three acres of seaside splendor in Harpswell, Maine, where you’ll get to enjoy spectacular views of private Curtis Cove and Casco Bay. You’ll escort residents on walks along our extensive series of woodland and seaside trails, with scenic vistas everywhere you look. You’ll love watching the change of seasons on the property, with plenty of opportunities to get outside with residents and take it all in.

“Working at The Vicarage has not been like any other facility…It’s not a facility at all. It’s a home. It is such a small setting that your able to give better, more personal care. I feel workplace and culture are wonderful and like no other. I have never felt so appreciated and valued as an employee as I do at The Vicarage.”
