Patricia MacMakin, Therapy Specialist, has been part of the South Yarmouth Team for 10 years. Over the course of that time, she has made an impact programmatically and in the lives of our clients. When she first started at CCI, she was an aide and was quickly promoted to her current role.  She is a great role model to staff and clients at the program. Her calm and patient demeanor make her a magnet for clients, who seek her out to sign, go for walks, or just to say hello.

Patricia is very considerate of other’s needs and makes sure that she is helping move things forward.  She helps ensure the safety of clients and makes sure that things continue to run smoothly.  Her stand-out attributes are her kindness, patience, and professionalism.  Patricia has been an asset to the South Yarmouth team in that she not only provides speech therapy to our consumers, but she makes the time to work with those that aren’t on her case load.

We congratulate Patricia for receiving this honor and thank her for her dedicated service to the community and Community Connections as a whole.

At the Luncheon not only did we honor Patricia, but 28 additional employees for their dedicated service.  These employees have served anywhere from 5 to 30 years.
