Nursing Care Ossipee

Nancy Donahue

Operations Manager LNA, BSEE, BM

Nancy was first hired as a caregiver in 2015, coming from a varied background in management and business, as she says, “in a previous life”. Relocating to the Lakes Region in 2013 from the Seacoast, she had to reinvent herself as her former high-tech jobs weren’t readily available. After spending time in hospitals while her mother was terminally ill with cancer, she found “The ones that really made a difference in my mom’s quality of life were the aides. This is something I can do.”

Shortly after she became a certified License Nursing Assistant, and worked in an assisted living facility, and later at the Merriman House, a long-term care facility in North Conway. Finding that nursing home duty, while rewarding, was also frustrating. She was always getting into trouble for spending too long with residents and not getting her work done. After interviewing and receiving offers from other homecare agencies, she met Heather, and just knew that this was someone that she had to work with.

In addition to calling on clients, working in the office, and living on a small farm, she can be found here and there about town playing for the Cate Park Band in the summer, in the orchestra pit for the Village Players’ musical productions, and conducts the annual Tuba Christmas in Wolfeboro.
