Our Services 
 
The Center provides the following services either in person or through phone or web contact to best meet the needs and/or preferences of our clients.  Our goal is to help one navigate the often complex and confusing bureaucracy of health management in a time of crisis with an emphasis on free or reduced cost programs.    Our current services include:
 
  • Emotional Support
  • Practical Advice
  • Critical Issue Assistance - such as helping a patient client to receive reduced cost health care, arrange expedited surgery, provide a companion to attend appointments, take notes, or obtain adaptive equipment.
  • Information Assistance - such as helping a patient client understand prescribed procedures, reports, and conditions.
  • Support for Grieving Family and Friends
  • Referral Services (for a service not offered by the Cancer Support Center of Maine) - such as providing referrals to improve access to free or reduced cost screenings and other existing assistance programs.
