After six years with MyGULFCare, "Miss Debbie" is retiring!
Debbie Maulding has worked over 40 years in nursing and is looking forward to time at home and with her family.
"I started my nursing career as a babysitter for a lady with Alzheimer's Disease, then as a nurse's aid doing private duty and home care while going to school to be a Registered Nurse," Debbie said her first job.
When asked what she will miss about working with MyGULFCare she said "my people, they have made this program a worthwhile endeavor."
MyGULFCare provides care management to those with Diabetes, Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia, COPD, and Heart Failure.
Since 2012, the program has grown and continues to provide services to residents of Gulf and surrounding areas, helping people with education about chronic illnesses, wellness and disease prevention, assistance with medications, locating resources in the community, and finding ways to improve their lives as well as their life skills.
Based on a Low Income Pool (LIP) grant and with input from multi-disciplinary consultants, Debbie designed and developed the program which has served over 1,500 people since it began.
Her last day will be Sept. 12.
