Island Elder Care Workers Meet DHHS Workers to ‘Make Things Work Better’

 

 

Mission Director of Island Health Sharon Daley, and other administrators involved with elder care on Maine’s islands and peninsulas, meet in person with Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) workers three times a year, “to brainstorm how to make things work better,” Director Sharon Daley said.

Friday, January 27, 2017, Sharon Daley was in Augusta with a group representing four island elder care homes, meeting with eight DHHS workers.

Sharon said. “Many regulations do not always apply to smaller elder care homes. Asking questions directly, and explaining the nature of small homes, especially island homes, we’ve been able find some solutions to these problems. Everyone attending these meetings has the same goal: caring for our elders in the best way possible,” she said.
