Cindy Donovan

Cindy Donovan, CEO of Loch Lomond Villa, a Saint John nursing home, has devoted much of her professional life to enhancing the lives of older adults and promoting positive aging. A Lieutenant Governor’s award recipient for Excellence in Aging (2016), Donovan has also been awarded the Rotary Vocational Award and the CCHSE Quality of Life Award. Donovan introduced Planetree©, a person-centered care model, into the nursing home and the province, resulting in Loch Lomond Villa being the only site in New Brunswick and the largest continuing care organization in the world to achieve this designation. Donovan was instrumental in bringing nurse practitioners into New Brunswick and in 2016 was appointed to the Council on Aging tasked with writing a 10 year aging strategy for NB.
