Excellence in LTC Awards Program 2020

This year, Maine caregivers have risen to the occasion, providing care, comfort and peace of mind to residents and consumers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

MHCA is pleased to once again partner with the Maine Long Term Care Ombudsman Program to present the 2020 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 Virtual MHCA Fall Conference.

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:
