Southern Maine Area Agency on Aging (SMAAA) resource specialist Zany is available by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (207-835-9866). She is not working at the Merrill Library while it is closed, but can help connect you to local and state resources for things like assisted living, housing, benefits, transportation, and more. She can also help fill out applications.
Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors is supporting an Aging In Place (AIP) initiative in Yarmouth, led by Leigh Kirchner with support from a large group of volunteers. We interpret Aging In Place to mean: the ability to live in one’s home and community safely, independently, and comfortably regardless of age, income, or ability level.
Yarmouth Aging In Place produces a quarterly newsletter, and you may read the most recent edition by clicking here. To read earlier issues, please see below.
If you have questions about, or suggestions for needed services, or would like to participate, please call Leigh at 207-712-7244 or e-mail her: email@example.com.
Services available now:
- Yarmouth AIP quarterly newsletter:
- Health Services and Support
- Economic Security

- The Phone Pal Program offers a volunteer who will regularly call you for a friendly chat, providing connections and someone you can talk to about everyday life.
