“It is an honor to be recognized by the Home Care and Hospice Alliance for my legislative work,” said Fay. “The policy advances we've made during my time in the Legislature have been significant, but the reason they've been successful is because of the hundreds of people who have put a whole lot of time and thought into how we can make Maine a better place to age.”

During her seven years serving in the Maine House of Representatives, Fay has sponsored and cosponsored legislation to improve working conditions for caregivers, provide food supplements to older Mainers and study the impacts of state-based long-term services and supports currently offered. She has also supported legislation to provide economic justice to historically disadvantaged older Mainers who utilize the Medicare Savings Program.

“As the next session begins, I will continue to advocate for older Mainers, caregivers and their families, and for the implementation of policies that we have worked so hard to pass,” said Fay.

Fay, is the Maine House chair of the Government Oversight Committee and a member of the Joint Standing Committee on Appropriations and Financial Affairs. She serves the community members of Casco, Frye Island, Raymond, and part of Poland. <
