Feedback is in: Direct Care Worker Summits a hit!

MHCA extends a huge thank you to those who joined us both on the road and virtually for one of our recent Direct Care Worker Summits. With stops in Presque Isle, Brewer, Augusta, and Portland, we had the pleasure of meeting incredible caregivers across the state. Please join us in thanking our all-star group of speakers, Del Gilbert, Accelerating Excellence, Margie McLaughlin, HealthCentric Advisors and Jill Gardner, Sandra Horne, and Heather Washburn from StrengthenME Workforce EAP. We also owe our gratitude to the Harold Alfond Center for Advancing Maine's Workforce, as they provided the grant funding that made these events FREE for all in attendance. 

Take a moment to hear what attendees had to say:

" The speakers were very positive and inspirational."
" I learned not to react but to respond and how to be more positive."
" This offered a lot of new thoughts to put into action in my new position."
" This was the best day!" 
" I enjoyed learning new ways to deal with different situations."
" It was all amazing!" 

Thank you again for those that found a way to make this opportunity available to your team members. We know that staffing challenges made it a difficult task and we appreciate the behind the scenes efforts that allowed folks to get out and attend the program for the day. MHCA looks forward to opportunities to provide education and networking opportunities to direct care workers in the future!
