Remember ME

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 705 long term care residents statewide.
