Information & Resources

A Lunder Family Alliance family navigator will be assigned to patients ages 18-30, from hospital admission through 30 days after discharge. For patients not in this age group, the attending physician or patient’s social worker will refer families for navigator services, as needed. The navigator is an excellent resource and will coach the family on communication skills, mental illness awareness and coping techniques.

Learn more about Lunder Family Alliance or contact the family navigator at 207-661-6131.

For the safety of our patients, staff and visitors you will be asked to sign in at the front desk and adults will be asked to produce identification. The receptionist will ask for your name and the patient you wish to visit. Only approved visitors will be allowed onto the units.

Once approved, you will be given a numbered visitor badge. Please clip this badge above your waist where it is easily seen and return to the receptionist when you leave. Before leaving the lobby you will be asked to secure all personal belongings (e.g. purse, coat, cell phone, personal keys, smoking materials, weapons, pocket knives and multi-tools, etc.) in the secure lockers in the lobby. Please take your locker key with you.

You will be greeted upon your arrival to the unit.
