Maine Medical Partners (MMP) Physicians, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners provide ongoing, primary patient care at nursing homes and assisted living communities in the Portland area. Our physicians also provide medical directorship at some of these sites.
The presence of MMP physicians in long term care settings allows for a smooth transition for those elders moving from an acute hospitalization to a skilled nursing facility This community effort has produced a strong bond among the geriatric healthcare settings and helped to fill the gaps that can commonly occur as older individuals transition from one healthcare setting to another.
Nursing homes and assisted living communities provide an important educational experience for Geriatric Fellows and other Internal and Family Medicine residents doing rotations in Geriatrics. In addition to nursing home care and assisted living care, our geriatricians are also available at New England Rehabilitation Hospital of Portland.
