Stick & Swim

The name almost says it all!

Stick & Swim is a program designed to help people learning to self-infuse associate their shot with something fun! Swimming is one of those activities almost everyone loves to do and it’s one of the best ways a person with a bleeding disorder can stay active while still maintaining a low-impact experience.

In it’s second year, this event is exactly what it sounds like it would be! People, kids, and parents learn how to stick themselves and when they’re  done, get to take a dip in the pool! We have nursing staff on site to help us learn how to access our veins!

We’d love to see you there! And, in case you didn’t hear, first-time self sticks get a special surprise!

Summer Social

HAM partners with the New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA) in the mission to enhance the lives of people who live with a bleeding disorder. We are excited to join up with NEHA to host the Summer Social, a fun event that seems to be holding the tradition of happening in August at Damariscotta State Park! We Eat! We Swim! We Socialize! (Some of our favorite words).

Medical Alert ID

One of the first steps to protecting yourself or your kids is to make sure a medical alert ID is worn at all times. The important information on these IDs will let emergency medical providers know information about your condition that could very well save your life. But don’t worry, medical ID styles have grown leaps and bounds. These aren’t your grandma’s gold chains anymore! From rugged Sports Bands to pendant Necklaces, you can pick the style you actually like and be protected without the worry of sticking out.

The MedicAlert® is more than just a piece of jewelry, this service provides you with constant access to the world’s largest emergency-support network. Medical alert ID’s are available for Mainers with hemophilia, Von Willebrand’s disease, or any other identified bleeding disorder at no cost.

Watcha waiting for?
Be prepared for anything & contact our office to sign up today!
