In order to ensure the health and safety of our clients, staff, and volunteers, when necessary, we’ll be shifting from in-person to virtual services—Dempsey Connects—for the month of January. For in-person services we will require proof of full vaccination with inclusion of booster for anyone eligible per the CDC guidelines.
If you’re unvaccinated by provider recommendation, you may provide us with a physician’s note in order to receive in-person services. For those with religious beliefs and practices that prevent vaccination, we will create accommodations.
All people entering the Center (clients, staff, volunteers, visitors) will be required to wear either a surgical or KN95 mask which will be available at the front desk of either Center.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we navigate the wisest and safest way to continue to provide a haven of support to people impacted by cancer.
Emotional support from someone who’s been there.
If you live in Maine and are facing a new cancer diagnosis or recurrence, Maine Cancer Mentors can help. This program matches newly diagnosed cancer patients with a cancer mentor who can provide peer support. Mentors are trained volunteers who have had cancer, are at least one year past their initial diagnosis and are ready to provide emotional support to others.
