MHCA Direct Care Worker Summits off to a strong start

Earlier this week MHCA hit the road, traveling to Presque Isle and Brewer to present a full day of education and inspiration designed specifically for direct care staff. Direct care staff traveled from far and wide to join together for these special events (scroll down to view event photos.) Thanks to the Harold Alfond Center for Advancement of Maine's Workforce, grant funds were secured that allowed the trainings to be offered at no cost to attendees. The energy in each location was positive and fun, with attendees engaging in collaborative group work and hearing from inspirational speakers including Del Gilbert, Accelerating Excellence, Margie McLaughlin, HealthCentric Advisors, and Jill Gardner, StrengthenME.
A few soundbites, from participants:
“This was the best day! Everyone in my facility should come to this!”
“I was so nervous to come, but this was so much fun I wish I could do it again!”
“Promise me you're going to come back and do this next year!”
Space remains in upcoming sessions scheduled for December 6th (Augusta,) December 7th (Portland,) and December 14th (Virtual-Zoom). Please consider sharing this opportunity with your teams. For more information and to register, please click here.
Please feel free to reach out to me in the association office with any questions.
