The Southern Maine Agency on Aging (SMAA) has opened a state of the art adult day center in Falmouth to serve people living in the community with dementia. The Stewart Center, located in the repurposed Lunt School on the OceanView campus, will offer evidence-based programs to individuals coping with dementia built on the latest advances in environmental gerontology. For more than three decades, SMAA has been a leader in providing therapeutic programs for people with dementia and support for their family caregivers through its Truslow Adult Day Center in Saco. Those services are now being expanded to the greater Falmouth area. At the Stewart Center, family caregivers will learn skills to manage the challenges a dementia diagnosis brings, while members attending the Center will enjoy fellowship and customized therapeutic activities designed to stimulate and engage them. The Stewart Center is named in honor of Tim and Howsie Stewart, long time SMAA supporters and family caregivers who truly understand the growing need for adult day services.
