Where we began…


The founders of Balsam House, Dan and Lucie began their journey together in 1986 in the joining of souls. They married in New Hampshire and started their family. Dan worked in all aspects of the building trades and Lucie opened and operated a child daycare.

In 2000 the Salisbury family made their move to Readfield, Maine where Dan felt a strong inspiration to service the elder community in some capacity. Both having their education and course of study in “The Art of Ministry” and desiring to combine the inspiration with their college education, they began to pursue a career path that would open the door of Balsam House Residential Care in 2010.

This dream continues to grow and develop to meet the needs of many in the surrounding communities, New England and beyond.
