Excellence in LTC Awards Program 2021

Maine caregivers provide care, comfort and peace of mind to long term care residents and consumers. Given the extraordinary circumstances that we all just lived and worked through, 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 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. We will honor our national AHCA Quality Award recipients at our in-person MHCA Fall Conference in October.

The Excellence in Long Term Care Award recognizes employees statewide who have consistently exemplified a commendable level of caregiving, dedication, and professionalism in caring for their residents/consumers. The Award honors caregivers who make a significant positive difference in the lives of 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 facility 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 organization/facility. All nominees must be employed by their organization/facility for at least one year.
The deadline for nominations is July 30, 2021. An independent panel of judges selects the winners who will be recognized during a special live event on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at Maple Hill Farm, just outside of Augusta.
