MHCA and LTCOP announce 2022 Excellence in LTC Awards Program

Maine caregivers provide care, comfort, and peace of mind to residents and consumers while continuing to observe COVID-19 safety protocols. Given the duration of the pandemic, now is the perfect time to honor the dedication of your staff.

MHCA is pleased to once again partner with the Maine Long Term Care Ombudsman Program to present the 2022 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 Award recognizes employees statewide who consistently exemplify a commendable level of caregiving, dedication, and professionalism in caring for their residents. 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 another 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 in late September, location to be determined. 

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 in workforce development.
