NOTE: Maine Hospice Council and Center for End-of-Life Care will be unveiling within the next few weeks. We are working with local business Capitol Computers and some extremely intelligent and creative students from the University of Maine at Augusta.

In the meantime, if you experience ANY difficulties with our current site, we encourage you to call MHC Executive Assistant Mareisa Weil at 207-626-0651, or email her at mweil at mainehospicecouncil dot org, and she will be more than happy to help you with anything related to MHC and/or end-of-life care.

Thank you for your patience as we prepare to transition to a new website!

Action without vision just passes time
Vision with action can change the world
