Island Health at Sunrise, 20 Miles at Sea

BAR HARBOR, ME — Island Health Director Sharon Daley’s photo taken last week at sunrise on Matinicus Isle gives us an idea of life on a Maine island 20 miles from the mainland.

For island residents, even accessing basic health care is challenging. Some islands have no daily ferry service. Trips to the mainland, when possible, are expensive and time consuming.

The Island Health program is part of the Mission’s focus for 2017’s #GivingTuesday on Nov. 28th. Learn more: https://seacoastmission.org/givingtuesday/

Maine Seacoast Mission plays a vital role in connecting residents of Maine’s most isolated islands with medical care, personal care, modern technology, and educational services. Director Sharon Daley meets with islanders in their homes, and on the Sunbeam V. Between trips Sharon stays in touch by phone, internet.

Sunbeam V has state-of-the-art telemedicine facilities. Islanders can have virtual office visits with mainland doctors. Adults/children connect with psychiatrists for evaluations and medication reviews. A growing number of island residents use telemedicne equipment to meet with mental health and substance abuse counselors.

Tricky Tide Means Island Health Director Travels to Matinicus Flu Clinic by Skiff

Island Health Director Sharon Daley, RN travels by skiff to Matinicus flu clinic.

BAR HARBOR, Me — October 17, The Sunbeam V left Northeast Harbor for a three-day Island Health tour. Timing is critical when the Sunbeam V motors in to Matinicus harbor. Low tide will strand the boat for about 12-hours. On trips when the Sunbeam V cannot spend that much time at Matinicus, Sharon has to rely on the Sunbeam V skiff to travel to the island.

In this photo, taken from the Sunbeam V, the boat’s Engineer, Storey King, is taking Sharon to a scheduled flu clinic at Matinicus.

The Island Health program is part of the Mission’s focus for 2017’s #GivingTuesday on Nov. 28th. Learn more: https://seacoastmission.org/givingtuesday/
