PSS Employee of the Year
On September 13th, Laura Parlee celebrated receiving the Excellence in Long-Term Care Award at the Blaine House. The service Laura has provided to consumers living on Mt. Desert Island exceeds all expectations. Working in multiple consumer’s homes and serving consumers seven days per week takes a great deal of commitment and loyalty from an individual. Laura recognizes that her consumer may not eat or drink or even get out of bed if she does not come to work. There is no one else to back her up if she is not there. Laura goes above and beyond to achieve the highest level of customer service within our organization. Consumers who have had Laura assisting them to stay in their homes have only said positive things about her and this is a positive reflection on the agency and the work that we do. Consumers say it best, “I can’t stay home without her.” Laura received the Joyce Gagnon Memorial Award, given in memory of Joyce’s tireless efforts of caring for people in their homes and her commitment to improve wages, healthcare, and the status of direct care workers.

Arranging for Care at Home is a Family Matter
It takes family or friends working together to choose the right in-home care for a loved one. Starting a conversation about home care can be difficult, but it’s good to begin sooner rather than later. You will have a better chance of helping them continue living at home if you address issues before there is a crisis.
We at Home Care for Maine have many years of experience working with older and disabled adults. We are happy to talk with you about the best way to talk with your family member or friend. Call us at 1-800-639-3084 or e-mail us.
I highly recommend Home Care for Maine and their caring staff starting at the top right on down through to the workers that come in for my mom.
