One of MHCA’s most popular programs, the Remember ME project features the black and white photographs, accompanied by brief biographies, of pioneering, innovative and interesting residents living in Maine’s long term care facilities. The annual event is kicked off with a recognition ceremony during which MHCA presents residents with Certificates of Lifetime Achievement. Since the project’s inception, MHCA has honored residents with historically significant backgrounds; unique or interesting accomplishments either while living in the facility or prior to admission; and those who have served community, state or country through volunteerism, civic organizations or US military. Since its inception, the Remember ME program has recognized 567 long term care residents statewide.
2020 Date & Location: April 7, 2020 at the Augusta Civic Center, Augusta (Due to the Coronavirus and CDC recommendations, this event has been postponed.)

Just because these residents are less visible in the community doesn’t mean that we should forget their important contributions to our state and country. After giving to others all of their lives, they now depend on us for their daily medical and social care and we take that responsibility very seriously. This photographic tribute and recognition ceremony is our way of remembering them and saying thank you.
