Kacie Gallant has a long history of caregiving at Lincoln Home. Her very first job was doing private duty for Lincoln Home. She then went on to pursue working for her CNA/CRMA credentials in 2004. Kacie worked at short intervals in other positions, but always returned to her family at Lincoln Home. She has been a steady presence to the residents since 2012. Upon retirement of Rhonda Hanna, long time Director of Community Life, Kacie was a natural fit. Her positive, compassionate demeanor, and love of the residents and their love for her, makes her new role an easy transition.
What Kacie loves about The Lincoln Home, is the feeling of family, both with staff and residents. Kacie shares, “The residents make my day. The Lincoln Home is unique, in that it’s private, small setting is resident – focused, family oriented and one of the cleanest facilities I have ever been in. It’s a positive work environment on every level.” About her new role, Kacie has shared that she loves getting to know the residents on a different, more personal level, than in the nursing/caregiving role. She enjoys sharing their concerns and joys, and creating meaningful activities that speak to the residents’ individual likes and needs, as well as creating fun group activity events. One of the highlights each week for the residents is open discussion of local, community news each Thursday after the Lincoln County Newspaper arrives.Kacie has been busy organizing bus rides, picnics, art activities and one on one “game dates.” Her light and laughter brighten the day for her “second’ family at Lincoln Home, adding to the team of caregivers bringing quality, consistent care and joy to the residents each and every day.
Kacie has two grown children, Brady and Ashlynn, is engaged to be married, and is about to buy a new home. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-563-3350.
