OUR COMMUNITY

The Wardwell plays an active role in our community.

 

Various programs are offered at the Wardwell that allow our neighborhood

to provide insight and opportunity to the community in which we live.

University of New England – Geriatrics Practicum
The University of New England
College of Osteopathic Medicine's Department of Geriatric Medicine is a community service educational affiliate of the Wardwell. Our residents contribute to the professional development of future physicians by volunteering to participate in the Geriatrics Practicum. This experimental learning opportunity allows medical students to meet with Wardwell residents and aids the students in connecting the theory they learn in the classroom with the reality of working in the community.

York County Senior College
The Wardwell has been host to numerous Senior College classes held in our conference room. The Senior College’s mission is to provide a curriculum of intellectually stimulating learning opportunities and special activities for persons 55 years of age or older.

  • The Wardwell is a member of the Biddeford-Saco Chamber of Commerce.
     

  • We support the efforts of Saco Main Street, a Main Street nonprofit organization that is committed to the revitalization of downtown Saco, Maine.
