Newfound Area Nursing Association (NANA)

is a not-for-profit community-based home health care and hospice organization, serving patients of all ages and all circumstances in the Newfound Area Lakes Region of central New Hampshire since 1960.

NANA Turns 60!

Newfound Area Nursing Association (N.A.N.A.) became part of the Bristol landscape February 16, 1960.  The impetus was provided by Bristol resident Evelyn Reed and Hope Swain of New Hampton in 1958.  With the encouragement of Dr. John Greenan, the first President of the organization, NANA was founded. The “temporary” association headquarters were in the elementary school basement. In 1975 it moved to the basement of Bristol Community Services, and then 1977 to its current location.


The first part time nurse made 200 visits in 1960.  Initially only skilled nursing services were provided.  In 1969, Physical Therapy services were added.  In June 2014, a certified Hospice program was added. Today NANA staff sees more than 6600 visits per year including skilled nursing, physical and occupational therapy, home health aide and homemaker services, speech and medical social worker consultations. In addition, NANA also offers clinics, at no cost, for blood pressure, foot care and immunization. A chair yoga program was recently added at the Newfound Senior Center. 


NANA continues to fulfill its mission of providing quality home health care to all patients recovering from hospitalization or illness, regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay.
