Hospice of the Red River Valley invites health care professionals to its January Lunch and Learn as we continue to explore various topics related to end-of-life care.

The next Lunch and Learn will take place on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, from noon – 1 p.m. Paulette Arrison, paralegal with Legal Services of North Dakota, and Anne M. Hoefgen, supervising attorney with Legal Services of Northwest Minnesota, will present “Legal Services for Older Adults in Minnesota and North Dakota.” Participants will learn about the various services available to older adults through Legal Services of North Dakota and Northwest Minnesota. Participants will also understand advantages of advanced health care directives and power of attorney.
