The Power of Care Ambassador Program Overview
In early October, the Maine Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program (LTCOP), in partnership with ETHOS, Maine CDC, DHHS Office of Aging and Disability Services and Licensing and Certification launched the Power of Care campaign.
The objective of the campaign is to increase vaccination rates for both COVID-19 and influenza among direct care staff employed in long-term care facilities and home care.

In addition to the Power of Care campaign utilizing social media we will be using peer to peer support to reach direct care staff across long-term services and supports settings providing information about the importance of vaccination, the campaign needs Ambassadors. Ambassadors are direct care staff who serve as peer-to-peer support providing information about the importance of vaccination. 
The benefits of the Program for your facility
The Power of Care Ambassador Program is a great opportunity for you to identify a leader in your facility and allow them the opportunity to be elevated as a Power of Care Ambassador. This also allows your facility to be seen in the community as a facility that is prioritizing vaccinations to keep residents and staff safe. And of course, the main objective is to increase your staff vaccination rates including boosters. View their flyer here.
