Four years ago, an extraordinary individual named Ann Consaul RN, BSN, became Director of Nursing at Moon River Senior Care and Transportation. A dedicated nurse for 33 years, Ann puts her heart into everything she does for our clients and their families. She also leads our team of nurses, aides and companions. Despite working long hours during the pandemic, Ann volunteered her weekends to make "We Care" bags for our team members, sewing masks in the early days when we couldn't purchase enough. During National Nurses Week, a special thank you to Ann Consaul and our entire team of nurses!
