Making a Difference

Nancy Brightwell

On With Life's Long-Term Skilled Care for Youth and Younger Adults program provides care to persons living with a brain injury who are medically stable, but require intensive nursing, therapy and medical support that may not be available in other settings. A major contributor to the program, Nancy Brightwell, has enjoyed collaborating with co-workers for the past 16 years to provide the unique level of care that is vital to those we serve. 

"It's all about making a difference in multiple little ways," said Nancy. "Although the program is made up of many individual people, our strength, my strength, comes from working together to provide the best care possible." 

In her role, Nancy creates care plans for persons served, helps to develop and evaluate nursing procedures, and is currently working with others to identify the electronic medical record program that will be utilized at On With Life. In addition, Nancy has completed her Certified Brain Injury Specialist certification, is one of three CPR trainers in our Long-Term program and was named a 2013 Employee of the Year. 

"Working in this field has made me realize just how drastically life can change," she stated. "You become a family and share in the happy and the sad. After coming to work here, I've never considered doing anything else." 

In her free time Nancy enjoys quilting, camping and spending time with her family; including her husband of 35 years, Roger, three children and two grandchildren.
