Reminder to Nominate for the 2023 Excellence in Long Term Care Awards
MHCA is partnering with the Maine Long Term Care Ombudsman Program to present the 2023 Excellence in Long Term Care Awards to recognize long term care employees across the continuum, including those working in home health care, assisted living, and nursing facilities. We will honor our national AHCA Quality Award recipients at the MHCA Fall Conference.
The Excellence in Long Term Care Awards recognizes employees statewide who consistently exemplify a commendable level of caregiving, dedication, and professionalism in caring for their residents/consumers. Because many team members contribute to the quality of care and life, we present caregiving awards across all disciplines as follows:
- Nursing/direct caregiver, such as a Nurse, CNA, PSS, CRMA, HHA, DSP, or other direct caregiver, AND
- All other disciplines, like social work, dietary, activities, etc., from any other department
Facilities and organizations may submit one nomination in each category for a total of two nominations. All nominees must be employed by their organization/facility for at least one year. An independent panel of judges will select the winners, who will be recognized during a special live event on November 9 at the Maple Hill Farm Inn & Conference Center in Hallowell, Maine.
There's never been a better time to honor your caregivers. Nominating your staff requires a small investment of time and energy but can mean much to the recipient. Submit your nomination online by September 1, 2023:
