MHCA pleased to announce 2022 Remember ME program

MHCA is currently accepting nominations for one of its most popular programs, the Remember ME photography exhibit and lifetime achievement awards. The exhibit will once again feature black and white photographs, accompanied by brief biographies, of residents living in your facilities. In 2020, MHCA held virtual recognition events to present the Certificates of Lifetime Achievement. Due to the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic, we will wait until Spring to make a determination about a live ceremony this year.
To nominate your resident, please go to the following link and click on the nomination form box where you will complete the form. To avoid losing your work, copy and paste full narrative from Word. Submissions must be completed in one session. Partial nominations will not be saved.
We are looking for pioneering, innovative residents who meet any of the following criteria:
  • Residents with historically significant backgrounds;
  • Residents who have had unique or interesting accomplishments either while living in the facility or prior to admission;
  • Residents who have overcome either personal or health-related obstacles to achieve;
  • Residents who have served community, state or country (through volunteerism, civic organizations or US military); OR
  • Residents who are considered pillars of the local community.
In fairness to all, we ask you to nominate only one resident from a facility. When considering a candidate, please be sure the resident is willing to be photographed by our professional vendors if he or she is selected. We understand there may be unforeseen circumstances, like illness, that may preclude getting a current photo when the time comes, but residents/families/POAs should be agreeable to the photography heading into the project. We will follow all applicable infection control procedures to ensure a safe photo shoot, i.e. masking, social distancing, etc. This will include requiring residents to be as close to entry points and natural light as possible to avoid having photographers move throughout your communities.
Join us again in putting the “human face” on long term care. Please be sure to submit your nomination on line by January 28, 2022.
