Cindy MacKay is proud to lead her Nurse Next Door team in serving communities around Ottawa, ON with compassionate 24 hour senior home care services for your loved ones.
Cindy has always had a knack for helping people. She has a BA in Psychology with a double minor in Law and Sociology from Carleton University and Developmental Service Worker Diploma with a focus on seniors. In her free time, she’s volunteered in various retirement homes through Kingston, Ontario and is a Director on the Board of Directors for the Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County. She identifies the overwhelming need of home care with Ottawa’s aging population. She wants to become the support alongside other home care service companies to sustain the community need for care in Ottawa.
One of Cindy’s dreams for the healthcare industry is to clean the system up to refocus on the patient – putting the patient first. Having a system of caring and compassion instead of complacency and disconnect. She is ecstatic to bring the bold pink brand to Ottawa!
Seniors have a variety of senior nursing care needs that can be challenging to address with families spread apart geographically, children balancing dual careers and other responsibilities. Cindy understands firsthand the stress involved with caring for someone senior with medical issues while managing one’s career, family and personal needs. Sometimes, all someone needs is just a little help. Because emergencies can happen at any hour, Nurse Next Door has a team in place to answer calls live, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and families are given peace of mind.
Cindy and her team also know that being cared for in one’s own language, whether it is French, Spanish, Arabic or Italian, can make all the difference when someone isn’t feeling well. This is just one of the many details that Nurse Next Door pays close attention to when matching the each client to the best suited nursing caregiver. Nurse Next Door not only provides medical and non-medical senior home health care services in Ottawa, they also provide staffing for long-term care establishments!

Cindy defines Happier Aging as: “Living your best life. Not allowing Age to limit your happiness. For me Happier Aging is my family, friends and doing something I love as a ‘job’.
