Advocacy is it’s own reward, acknowledge it anyway

Granite State Home Health & Hospice Association (GSHHA) created this award in honor of Maryellen LaRoche, director of Carroll County Health & Home Care Services in Chocorua until her death in early 2009. Maryellen was politically active at all levels of government, and frequently represented home health providers at the NH State House.  She believed that being active in public policy was essential to promote and assure the availability of quality home care services for every NH resident. This award recognizes an individual or organization that has made a significant contribution to home healthcare in New Hampshire through leadership in the public policy arena.
