We are pleased to introduce you to a wonderful nurse at Affinity Home Care Agency. Diane McDonald is our September Employee of the Month. Diane is a nurse who has worked for other home care agencies, but has been with Affinity for 7 ½ years. She says she feels “blessed to be a part of the Affinity family”. Diane says her co-workers are supportive, helpful and knowledgeable. She loves how everyone works very well together across all disciplines. Diane credits Dr. Jerry Zayid’s generosity, positivity and honesty that creates a family atmosphere at Affinity Home Care Agency. “This has been the best experience”, says Diane.
Diane knew she wanted to become a nurse after working with the elderly in a nursing home in high school. She knew it would be a fulfilling career. Diane loves the personal interactions when she meets her patients in their homes. She is deeply satisfied when she can help her patients and their families learn how to improve their daily living and teach them how to cope with the conditions they face. She strives to always make a difference in her patients’ lives.
Diane has been married to her “high school sweetheart”, Don, for 35 years. They actually met in grade school! Diane and Don, a UPS driver, have 5 children ages 33, 32, 30, 28, and 19. Their children thought Diane and Don needed a puppy during the covid lockdown, so they now have 7 month old, Bear! Their four older children have graduated and work in their various fields. Their youngest daughter is a sophomore at CMU. Diane and
Don both come from large families. They enjoy their family parties and vacations. They also enjoy spending time with their many friends and their families. Diane loves traveling and boating, plus she likes gardening and party planning.
Affinity Home Care Agency is lucky to ha
ve such a dedicated nurse to visit our clients in their homes. We thank you Diane for all that you do to make each day a great day for the patients you serve. Congratulations on being honored as the Affinity Home Care Agency Employee of the Month for September!
