Happy Women's Day
Serving You For Over 40 Years

Who Are We and Who Do We Serve?

Bridges Home Services is part of the Spectrum Generations umbrella of services. We have been providing quality care for over 40 years. We started our work with our Center Based and Case Management Services- offering the service to individuals who receive MaineCare Section 21/29 coverage. When COVID hit Maine, there was an increased need for more individualized service and our one staff to one client support developed. We cover Cumberland, Androscoggin, Frankin, Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox, Waldo, Penobscot, Somerset, and Kennebec counties. Our administrative offices are located out of Augusta and Waterville. We have the added benefit of Spectrum Generations volunteer opportunities, the programs and educational opportunities with professional speakers, and the knowledge of additional community resources to help members live independent lives.


The Community Support Services team takes a person centered and compassionate approach to help members live their (best/preferred) life. We value/understand the uniqueness of each individual and the family that supports them. All our Adult Day and Community Support Services (ADCSS) are provided by trained Direct Support Professionals who have their First Aid/ CPR certifications. Our experienced support team provides continued guidance and training to help Direct Support Professionals provide comprehensive support to you or the person you care for. Let our experts assist you in navigating the supports and services you are looking for.
