Home Visit with Senator Jennifer Flanagan

The Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts and Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice facilitated a home visit with Senator Jennifer Flanagan to meet with a resident within the Senatorial District. Senator Flanagan’s Senatorial District encompasses a diverse population spanning eleven communities. The district includes the towns of Berlin, Bolton, Clinton, Lancaster, Lunenburg, Sterling, Townsend and Westminster, along with the cities of Fitchburg, Gardner, and Leominster. Berlin, Bolton, Lancaster, Lunenburg and Townsend are member towns for Nashoba Associated Boards of Health.

The home visit was made to meet Townsend resident Beverly McDonnell. Beverly recently moved to Townsend and lives in a single family home with her 11 year old granddaughter. Beverly worked in Human Resources at Raytheon for over 32 years before retiring in 2012.   She recently had a knee replacement and has required home health services during her recovery. Beverly plans to have her other knee replaced after she fully recovers from her recent surgery. During the home visit Senator Flanagan was able to chat with Beverly while she was receiving a Physical Therapy session with Elizabeth Dunn, PT.  Before her knee replacement she enjoyed going to the Groton Senior Center to play Mahjong and recently started going to the Townsend Senior Center to play Scrabble. She is an avid reader and says the Townsend Library is amazing. Beverly also enjoys going to The Merrimack Repertory Theater and is looking forward to attending some of the upcoming live shows when she is ready.

Friends Non-Profit Group Formed

Shirley, MA - The Friends of Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice (Friends of NNS&H) is a non-profit volunteer group newly formed to provide assistance to Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice (NNS&H).  Over the years, health care reimbursements to home health and hospice providers have been deeply reduced.  NNS&H provides high quality home health services, such as nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapy, social work and homecare aides to their homebound patients.  Spiritual, volunteer and bereavement services are also provided to their hospice patients and families. 

The purpose of the non-profit Friends of NNS&H is to provide financial assistance to supplement and promote the activities of the NNSH&H, provide direct charitable assistance to indigent persons in need of nursing and hospice services, and to assist in the development of programs for the extension and improvement of their services and resources. 

The Friends group is actively seeking individual and community support by asking you to become a “Friend” of the Friends of Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice.  If you would like to help out, remember that no donation is too small or too large and it is tax deductible.  You may mail your donation directly to Friends of Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice, Two Shaker Rd., D-225, Shirley, MA 01464.  Checks can be made out to Friends of NNS&H.  If you need further information about the Friends, please call 978-425-6675.
