Phillips-Strickland House Corporation was created to ensure a top-quality residence with essential services for the aging population of Eastern Maine. Since its incorporation in 1975 as a non-profit residence for people ages 65 and over, the mission remains. However, the nature of the services we provide changed.

Today, Phillips-Strickland House, still a high-quality residential care center, offers maximum independence to residents. Carefully prepared meals, assistance with daily living activities, therapeutic and recreational activities, and the loving care of a certified staff ensures each resident has a future filled with promise and the opportunity to thrive. More than a retirement home. Our facility is a way of life for the people who live at 21 Boyd Street.


The first step in applying for admission to Phillips-Strickland House is to complete an admission form.

Download the Phillips-Strickland Admission Form.

Mail the completed form to:

Cindy Boyd , RN
Phillips-Strickland House
21 Boyd Street
Bangor, ME 04401

Once we have the completed form, you will be considered for admission. When we have an opening, we will contact people on the waiting list. If the time is right, we will schedule a tour and an interview. At that time, we ask that you sign a release to allow us to gather medical information from your primary care physician.

Once all the information is complete, it will be reviewed by the admissions committee. Their findings will be shared with the family as soon as possible. If you have specific questions, please contact Cindy Boyd, RN, at [email protected] or call 207.941.2820.
