Our vision at Nightingale Homecare is to foster a deep understanding throughout our organization and in the communities we serve that what we do is “big.”
We envision an organization where people are changed by the gratification and humility that come when truly connecting with and caring for people during their most vulnerable times of need. This deep understanding will keep us grounded and engender the desire for excellence that we seek in each and every decision we make and interaction we have.

June 4, 1961 – July 06, 2021
Mary McDonough, a founder and co-owner of Nightingale Homecare was a registered nurse who was a conscientious, tenacious, and motivated go-getter.
She started Nightingale Homecare in 1994 because she knew she could provide home care more effectively and compassionately than the companies she had been employed by. She put in countless hours to establish and market the agency, often handing out her famous home-baked pies to get business from potential referral sources.
Mary so admired Florence Nightingale’s intelligence, selflessness and methodical approach to nursing that she was compelled to name the agency after her. To this day, employees of the company are evaluated against a high standard of excellence and compassion that illustrates what it means to be a true “Nightingale”.
