MHCA and LTCOP Accepting Nominations for the 2021 Excellence in Long Term Care Awards

MHCA is pleased to once again partner with the Maine Long Term Care Ombudsman Program to present the 2021 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. 

The Excellence in Long Term Care Award recognizes employees statewide who consistently exemplify a commendable level of caregiving, dedication, and professionalism in caring for their residents/consumers. Because there are many team members who contribute to 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, or other direct caregiver, AND
  • All other disciplines, like social work, dietary, activities, etc. from any other department
Administrators/supervisors may nominate a staff member of their choice. Facilities may submit one nomination in each category for a total of two nominations per facility. 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 Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at Maple Hill Farm, just outside of Augusta.

There's never been a better time to honor your caregivers. Nominating your staff requires a small investment of time and energy that has the potential to offer a great return! Submit your nomination online by July 30, 2021:
