We are saddened to announce the passing of our esteemed colleague Frances Neilan.

Frances was a valued and integral part of our Windmill Healthcare team since 2014. Frances was Director of Nursing at Clarinbridge Care Centre for 4 years, before Director of Nursing roles at Ferbane Care Centre and Abbot Close Care Centre and in recent years as Operations Manager of the Windmill Healthcare Group. Frances exemplified leadership in the way she led her staff. She gave energy, commitment and inspiration to her staff and her management colleagues. Frances, a registered nurse at the core who was dedicated to helping others, making a positive impact in resident’s lives in providing the best quality care possible.

Give me strength and wisdom when others need my touch; a soothing work to speak to them, their hearts yearn for so much. Give me joy and laughter, to lift a weary soul; pour in me compassion to make the broken whole. Give me gentle healing hands, for those placed in my care; a blessing to those who need me, this is a nurse’s prayer.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Frances’ family & friends.

May Frances Rest in Peace.
