MDNA nurses have visited and taken care of my mother for over 8 years. This in-home nursing care has been has been an incredible service to me and my family. As the primary care-giver among my siblings, it has meant so much to me to have professional nurses assess and assist my mother. and provide resources for me. The professional skills of these nurses, Emma and Theo, and their regular weekly visit to my mother have meant that potential problems have been recognized before they became emergencies. In the office, my questions have been answered by another nurse, Anne, and I have been helped in finding resources for my mother. Their presence and availability takes such a weight off my shoulders. Through the efforts of the MDNA nurses, my mother, at age 95, is still able to live at home, and I have the reassurance that she is being monitored and cared for on a regular schedule of visits, with extra visits as needed. My mother looks forward to these visits, and has great faith and trust in Emma and Theo. The Mount Desert Nursing Association is a real town treasure. I cannot imagine what I, or the residents of Mount desert, would do without the nursing care, concern and knowledge provided by these wonderful nurses and this outstanding organization.
