This photo appeared in the NH Star on June 11, 1975 showing a homemaker health aide from “Kearsarge Visiting Nurse Association” (now Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice) assisting a community member who had recently been discharged from New London Hospital.

What else was different in the 1970’s?

In 1972 staff drove 11,800 miles to care for patients...in 2019 that number was 619,713

In 1972 a total of 390 visits were made to provide skilled nursing care...today that number is over 35,000 visits

In 1975 charitable giving levels for the annual fund were $1, $5 and $10...and a $100 donation made you a "life member"
