Shuttered Jonesport nursing home will be converted

by Nancy Beal

A small but serious group of Moosabeckers is working diligently to reopen Jonesport’s Sunrise Care Facility (SCF) as a 24-bed assisted living center. SCF, formerly Resthaven Nursing Home, was rescued from a sea of red ink by Down East Community Hospital nearly two decades ago, but in the summer of 2017, the hospital decided that the debt threatened its own finances and, reluctantly, shuttered the home and delivered its residents to facilities in Machias and Milbridge.
