Advance Care Planning – It’s All About How You Want to Live

Advance Care Planning isn’t just for those with life-limiting illnesses – but for all of us. Pine Tree Hospice is offering a FREE informative seminar at the Thayer Parkway Community Room on Monday, November 12th, from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

Advance care planning involves ongoing conversations and review of written wishes and goals for your life, end of life, and death. It encompasses several areas of concern including financial, property and health care decisions, how you want to be treated, how you want to be remembered and what you want to have done after your death.

For you and your loved ones, advance care planning is the way you can make a difficult time easier.

For more information and to register, call Pine Tree Hospice at 564-4346 or email wecare at pinetreehospice.org.

Grief through the Holidays

Grief through the Holidays, with Rev. Ray Beless, is the topic of Pine Tree Hospice’s Lunch ‘n Learn Program on November 13th from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in Dover-Foxcroft. The holiday season is a difficult one for those people who have lost loved ones recently, or in the past. It is often helpful and comforting to know that you aren’t alone at this time of year. Many people seek and find comfort by sharing their feelings of pain, emotions and thoughts in a group setting. Others may never say a word but because the participants in the group have the shared experience of the death of a loved one, they are able to show understanding and empathy to one another.

This event is part of Pine Tree Hospice’s Adult Bereavement Support and is FREE of charge. The program is open to anyone in the community who has experienced grief and loss whether recently or in the past. A FREE nutritious lunch is included.

To pre-register for Lunch ‘n Learn, please call Pine Tree Hospice at 564-4346 or email wecare at pinetreehospice.org

Movie: The Bucket List

Pine Tree Hospice and AARP are sponsoring a FREE family movie with popcorn, water, tea, coffee and juice on Wednesday, November 7th, at 7:00 pm at the Center Theatre in Dover-Foxcroft.

Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson are two terminally ill cancer patients who decided to break out of the hospital and live their last days to the fullest. Nicholson plays a corporate billionaire who is currently sharing a hospital room with a blue-collar mechanic (Freeman). Initially the pair seems to have nothing in common, but conversation gradually reveals that both men have a long list of goals they wish to accomplish before they kick the bucket, and an unrealized desire to discover what kind of men they really are.

Grief and Safety with Dr. Lesley Fernow

Grief and Safety is the topic of Pine Tree Hospice’s Lunch ‘n Learn Program on October 16th from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in Dover-Foxcroft. During periods of grief, we may not always be as cognitively aware of our surroundings as we usually are. Dr. Lesley Fernow will discuss how you can be safer at home, as well as when you leave home for errands or appointments. Pine Tree Hospice knows that when one is suffering grief, there are many things we don’t think of, safety being one of them.

This event is part of Pine Tree Hospice’s Adult Bereavement Support and is free of charge. The program is open to anyone in the community who has experienced grief and loss whether recently or in the past. A free nutritious lunch is included.  To pre-register for Lunch ‘n Learn, please call Pine Tree Hospice at 564-4346 or email wecare at pinetreehospice.org.
