LEWISTON – The National Association of Retired Federal Employees will meet at noon Tuesday, Jan. 25, at the Ramada Inn.

Janet Hall, R.N., certified hospice and palliative care nurse, director of hospice at Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice, will address the group.

The hospice program, which serves Androscoggin, Franklin and Oxford counties, helped more than 700 hospice patients and their families during 2004.

Hall has been a nurse for more than 30 years, working in different areas, including more than 20 years in the hospital. During the past 15 years, she has worked in home care and hospice in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. She returned to Maine three years ago to continue her hospice nursing career.

Hall is the mother of three adult children and lives in Auburn.

Hall will speak on “Hospice Philosophy of Care, What Does that Mean to Me?” When is someone eligible to access hospice service? How is hospice paid for? What services are available for patients, families and caregivers? She will answer questions.

Plans for the meeting were made at a recent board meeting at the home of Vi Dumais. Attending were President Sue Stetson, Florence Bohunicky, Doris Hamel and Therese Baumer. Lunch will be served at noon, then Stetson will conduct a business meeting.
