Old Sailors Home

I am wondering if someone might be able to help me. I have a great-great- grandfather who was a sailor on whaling ships out of New Bedford, Massachuetts during 1860 to about 1880.
I have been told that he died ( I have no death date, just sure it was before 1900) in an Old Sailors Home in Maine. We know this because a daughter went there to stay with him, and when he died she brought him back to Massachuetts for burial.
I haven't been able to find anything about a home for sailors on the Internet. Since I live in Texas I was hoping someone from Maine might know about this Sailors Home.
Can anyone help? I am sure it doesn't exist any more, but perhaps some one may know where it may have been, so I could find a death certificate. Thanks, Diane
