What will this cost me? Do I need insurance?

All of Abiding Care’s services are offered free-of-charge to our clients. We fundraise year-round to keep it this way. No insurance is taken, so there is no need to bring your card. We know you have enough on your mind right now without having to worry about bills! So come in, take a load off – your generous community has paid the bill!

Can I bring someone with me?

Absolutely! You bring anyone who you feel will be a good support to you, whether it’s a trusted friend, your partner, or a parent or grandparent. If you don’t feel comfortable bringing anyone with you, that’s okay too. There is a great group of people here that is ready to support you as much as you need.

If I am under 18, can you still see me without my parents knowing?

Yes. According to WI State Law, minors are able to receive our types of services without parental consent. In fact, telling them would be revealing protected medical information. If you feel comfortable, we encourage you to tell them. They may be a great source of support to you, but that decision is totally up to you. We are more than happy to talk through that with you at your appointment.

How long should I expect my visit to last?

That usually depends on the type of services you receive. A positive pregnancy test with an ultrasound can take 1.5-2 hours. A negative test will be much less. Education classes are usually an hour. If you are pressed for time, please be sure to let us know that as soon as you get here and we will do our best to accommodate you!

Is it going to be very obvious to someone that I am there?

In our current location we have very little signage out front, and several different parking options. In addition to our parking lot, there is a city parking lot across from us that many others use. There is street parking in front of homes and apartments or there is parking in the very back off of the alley and you can enter through the back door. Just be sure to call us when you are here so we can let you in.

Do I have to live in Medford to get services here?

Not at all! We serve clients from all over the area. We welcome anyone who wants to make the drive! If you are not from the area, we can also refer you to a Center that might be closer to you as well.

I am not currently pregnant, but I am a parent. What services do you have for me?

We have resources and services for parents who are expecting or current parents who are in need of material assistance or just in need of some encouragement or support. You can take classes and earn items you need. You can also just come, take classes, enjoy a cup of coffee with our staff and learn how to be the best parent you can be! We also will work with you to see what outside assistance we can refer you too. We want you to know you are not alone in this – you have a whole team here to walk with you on your parenting journey! As a client said, it’s like family here! Contact us today.

You are more loved than you know
