Jud Caswell is a little bit like a one-man folk festival. You’ve got your banjo picking, your Irish songs, a rack of acoustic instruments, and a deep catalog of award-winning originals. He’s often compared to James Taylor and David Wilcox, but his songs draw on a long musical history and wide-ranging influences from jazz and Piedmont blues to contemporary folk and rock. Join us Monday, APRIL 8, at 1:00 pm.
Lari-Ann Beaucage started working at the Lincoln Home in 1992 in the dining room. She studied to become a CNA, working with residents until 2015. Lari-Ann is now the staffing manager and head of Human Resources. She still fills in as a CNA when needed because she loves working directly with the residents. In Lari-Ann’s words, “I love we are a family and how well we work as a team. I have worked for other facilities, and none of them had the feel of family that we share here. We all care about each other and strive to create a homelike atmosphere for our residents. No one is just a number here. We all love making a difference in the family’s and resident’s lives.”

Alisa Grierson started working in the kitchen at the Lincoln Home in 2010 after owning her own restaurant, The Breakfast Place, in Damariscotta. Many years prior, she had been a CNA, and decided to re-instate her certificate, working 3 – 11. The Lincoln Home helped Alisa to complete her CRMA training. She now works days and is qualified to dispense medicine. Alisa feels at home at LH, it has become family to her. She loves working full time, and often volunteers to take on more shifts. Alisa cares so deeply for the residents, she gets emotional as she speaks about the big part they play in her life.
On a personal note, one phone call that I will never forget, epitomizes Alisa’s personality and the entire culture at LH. We were driving my 97 year old mother in law to live at the LH from Cape Cod. It was a long and stressful ride and I called to say we would be much later than I hoped to arrive. Alisa answered the call, with “How can we make this easier for you? What can we do to help?” And that is exactly what each and every resident, and family, receives day in and day out, from every member of the staff who give from their heart.
In the 1990’s, Deborah Gould bought an old two-story farmhouse in East Pittston. The history of the home brought her to Joel Thompson, who bought the land in 1811 and whose descendants owned the property for the next 100 years. Both fiction and social history, Deborah’s novels, The Eastern, I & II, explore the themes of community, working together for the common good, and solid New England concepts we seem to have lost along the way. Join Deborah on Monday, March 18, from 3:00-4:00pm.
We have been asking our employees what they really like about working at the Lincoln Home. The overall message, loud and clear, is being part of a family, and really making a difference in our residents’ lives. Over the next few weeks we will be sharing individual and personal stories. Together, as a team, we pride ourselves in the care we give our residents, but what really sets us apart is our “level of caring.” We go above and beyond.
