Deer Isle Plus, formed in 2011 by a group of residents of Stonington and Deer Isle, is a mechanism that enables professional health services to notify the Deer Isle Plus coordinator who can then communicate with your personal network. You fill out an enrollment form of your wishes and this is then kept on file with the coordinator. If you then find yourself in a health emergency, this is a way for you to activate your support networks.
Thanks to generous financial support we now can offer this information service at no charge to anyone anywhere on the Island of any age who feels they need the extra support.
Neighbors help neighbors as we combine modern technology and old-fashioned caring in a support network for those who wish to live independently in their own homes as they age.
We believe that we can enhance the effectiveness of what we already have
and create new possibilities for cooperation in our Island community.
We respect all matters of confidentiality whether they are personal, medical, or financial.
