In celebration of National Nurses Week, we asked families supported by Northeast Arc’s Adult Family Care program to share some messages for the nurses who provide care and support. Read their wonderful messages below!


  • Tara is wonderful to work with, knowledgeable, understanding and very responsive. Tara’s a great addition to the NEARC AFC program.
  • Jen has been an amazing support team member.  She is conscientious, considerate, and dedicated to her clients and their families.  She is always willing to troubleshoot and tap her network to find solutions to issues that we are experiencing and truly has our son’s best interests in mind. Never reluctant to go the extra mile, she is irreplaceable. Thank you, Jen!
  • Today, we had a visit from our nurse Tara Bursey. She is a wonderful & compassionate nurse. She is personable as well as professional answering any & all questions that we asked her. She is genuinely interested in the wellbeing of the client as well as the caregiver. We as a family feel blessed to have her as our nurse for James. We appreciate all that she does & would like to recognize her as an outstanding nurse. Nurses do God’s work & she is certainly one of them!
  • Nurse Jess is wonderful! She is very warm and friendly and makes us feel comfortable to say or ask about anything. We love having her as part of our support team and feel very grateful to have someone so kind, thoughtful, and caring. We appreciate all of her help!!!
