Marianne Field, RN, of Mid Coast Senior Health recently received the Maine Health Care Association (MHCA) 2018 Celebrating Excellence in Caregiving Award during a recognition ceremony held at the Augusta Civic Center. Field was one of 10 caregivers statewide who received the honor this year.

The awards are given annually to long-term care employees statewide who have consistently exemplified a commendable level of caregiving, dedication, and professionalism in caring for the state's elderly and disabled citizens living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

"Marianne is a role model within our nursing department, recognized for delivering high-quality compassionate care," said Kim Watson, Mid Coast Senior Health Administrator. "She understands the importance of taking a few extra minutes every day to build meaningful relationships with those she cares for and works alongside. We are delighted that Marianne received such a well-deserved honor."

The Celebrating Excellence Award is designed to thank and honor Maine's long-term care employees who spend their days and nights caring for others. To be considered, nominees must meet certain criteria, including consistent quality of caregiving, attention to residents' rights, leadership among peers, and ability to inspire others through example. Nominations for the award were submitted by long-term care facilities statewide and winners were selected by an independent panel of judges with long-term care expertise.

According to MHCA President and CEO Richard Erb, "Maine's direct care and support staff provide compassionate quality care, and in many cases fill a family role for long-term care residents and consumers each and every day. This luncheon and awards program are a tribute to their dedication and our way of saying thank you."
