We are state licensed, and Medicare and Mainecare certified.  Currently we are part of a collaboration with four other home health agencies in the state of Maine.  We are  organized as  Eastern Maine HomeCare and take advantage of the expertise of four other homecare agencies serving patients in the state of Maine. We are excited about this new partnership which allows us to work together to provide the best homecare and hospice services in our area.
Patty Herklotz, LCSW has worked as a rotating site supervisor for the GPPP students for the last two years.  She has enjoyed sharing the many aspects of her work.  Much of the work is community resource planning, counseling for coping with serious illnesses and end of life care and working collaboratively with the other disciplines on our team.  She feels very fortunate to have a job with incredibly talented and committed colleages.  It is a wonderful work environment and she is happy to share this with any interested student.  On her off time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing tennis and scrabble.
