Living Wills/Advance Medical Directives

Advance Directives can protect your rights if you become unable to communicate your wishes due to illness or injury. All participants must bring a photo I.D.

Prescription Assistance Program
If you or a family member cannot afford to purchase needed prescription medications our Prescription Assistance Program can help. In most cases, if your household income is below $23,880, have no other outside help for prescription medications and you are a patient of an affiliated physician, you may qualify for free medications. Please see your medical provider for a referral form.
Dental Health Program
Speare’s Dental Health Program began in 1998 to specifically target this community need. Working in collaboration with School Administrative Unit 48, the Ashland, Lin-wood and Warren School Districts, Plymouth Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine and Plymouth OB/GYN, the Dental Health Program’s services include: free dental screenings and fluoride varnish applications; dental cleanings and sealants to school-aged children on a sliding fee scale, to “at risk” pregnant women and the homeless; restorative care for children who are in pain from decay and infection; and case management and financial assistance are available to those in need.
