U.S. Senator Susan Collins delivered remarks at the dedication ceremony for the Memory Care Garden at St. Andre Health Care in Biddeford. The ceremony was attended by approximately 100 people, including residents and their families, the Board and staff of St. Andre, state and local representatives, Bishop Robert Deeley, Good Shepherd Sisters, and others.
“Since its founding nearly 80 years ago by the Good Shepherd Sisters, St. Andre has provided quality, compassionate, and innovative health care,” said Senator Collins. “Proverbs tells us that, ‘Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life.’ This wonderful garden helps to heal hearts, and St. Andre’s desire to serve is a tree that continues to grow.”
