Prerequisites and Requirements
Port Resources currently offers two options for the Shared Living Medication Recertification. Participants may select one of the following options:
A) Register through this website for a live, two-hour recertification session at our facility in South Portland.
B) Complete the recertification through the mail. Our registered nurse will contact you to discuss your situation and will mail a packet with a SASE, to be mailed back upon completion with the course fee. For this option, please email Anna Adams (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your contact information.
- Current SLO-MAC Certification
The Shared Living Medication Administration course recertification is for people who have been previously certified to administer medications in Shared Living or Family-Centered Home Support settings funded under MaineCare section 21. This course is for the primary home provider as well as any others who administer medication only to the people living in the home. Anyone who is paid to administer medications in other settings is not eligible to take this course.
Recertification can only be obtained through an OADS Developmental Services approved nurse instructor. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be recertified to administer medications to people who live in Shared Living or Family-Centered Home Support.
