This small New England town is a small community that survives on Lobsters and family. This small Nursing Home is home to 21 residence who have called Jonesports home for Decades. Now this small Nursing home and it’s family had been told they are shutting down because MaineCare has failed to pay there bills and reimburse the facility for the care they Provide. The Down East Community Health system has given orders for closer in August. The home and work place for so many is being shut down for reasons that should have been prevented. This small Nursing home is one of very few businesses in town and the heart of this small New England Town. Without Sunrise the community will parish with time. This town depends on its elders and rely on Sunrise to be the heart of the community. I worked there for short time but never seen so much love for its residence. The community  used this place as a second home for many and allowed it elderly to not only live there but be member and voices of the community. I just feel if this small Nursing home is to close Jonesport Maine will slowly become just a memory.
