MaineGeneral has two dedicated social workers who provide support to and coordinate resources for patients.
They help patients with medication assistance programs, government assistance and low-cost pharmaceutical programs.
These specially trained social workers also provide emotional support to patients coping with their initial diagnosis and the challenges that arise as they receive treatment.
A diagnosis of cancer often leads to considerable financial stress in the form of reduced or lost income.
Our social workers can assist patients in locating resources to assist them with their financial challenges and may assist patients in coordinating transportation to treatment sessions, as needed.
Social workers offer a friendly face and encouragement that may make all the difference to patients receiving treatment.
