The Bangor Area Visiting Nurses are celebrating 100 years.For the last century, the group has been serving Bangor-area residents by making in-home visits. The organization has seen many changes throughout the years, from Medicaid to new technologies, and the addition of hospice care. Jeanie Maddocks worked for the visiting nurses in the 1960′s and she says it was a great experience.”If was a great job, very rewarding, satisfying work. You think, you know you are helping others out and in their home, kept them from having to leave their home and go to the hospital,” Maddocks said.
