Millinocket is a great place to put your feet up and relax. We are home to many retirees, who have found their retirement dream in our community. There aren’t many places where you can fish, star gaze, and visit the library – all within walking distance of your in-town home.
Thrive Penobscot is a local group funded by Maine Health Access Foundation’s Thriving in Place. The group is a made up of representatives from in-home service agencies, hospitals, churches, food pantries, health providers, and community groups who provide services for those who choose to stay in their own home as they age, as well as those living with disabilities and chronic illness. The group has developed an action plan for the Katahdin and Lincoln Lakes area to increase knowledge and use of local resources, promote and expand local transportation services, reduce food insecurity, address social isolation, and expand caregiver education, training, and support.
