Honoring the Memory of Dr. John Lloyd
Dr. John Lloyd served as NANA's Home Care Medical Director since 2003. He was a knowledgeable, dedicated, and caring physician who provided guidance and support to the management and staff at NANA. He had a deep commitment to the health of the Newfound communities. He was always available for consultation and a valuable resource for healthy living and holistic approaches to patient care. Through his work with NANA on the Professional Advisory Committee, members developed a more personal relationship that enhanced their deep appreciation for him both personally and professionally. Our deepest sympathy to his wife, Suzanne, and their two daughters. Some people only touch our lives briefly while others, like Dr. Lloyd, leave a lasting impression. Dr. Lloyd will be sadly missed by NANA and the communities we serve.
NANA Receives Hospice Certification from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services
In the past, patients received NANA home care services and as they transitioned to end-of-life care they would be discharged to another home care agency for Hospice services.
To meet the needs of our patients, NANA’s Board of Directors granted approval for NANA to apply to become a Hospice certified agency. On July 1, 2014, NANA was notified that effective June 23, 2014, NANA was granted Hospice certification. As a Hospice certified agency, NANA staff are able to continue to care for patients by providing continuity, familiarity, reassurance and comfort to patients and their families when they need NANA staff the most.
Initiating and implementing a Hospice program required many layers of nursing proficiency, professional support services, written protocols, resources and financial security. As with home care, NANA needed to comply with the State of New Hampshire and Federal Government regulations for Hospice.
NANA is excited to be able to continue to expand programs to meet the needs of the communities we serve.
Thank you for all your support. We could not have acheived certification without your help.
