Spencer Nash

Executive Director

Spencer has been at Barathaven Alzheimer’s Special Care Center since 2020. He started in the field ten years ago as a Licensed Practical Nurse caring for residents at skilled nursing. He was promoted to Interim Administrator and Interim Director of Nursing for another Assisted Living and Memory Care company. Along with supporting his community at Barathaven, his interests include hiking, home improvement, and road trips. He’s also an animal lover and enjoys family time with his spouse and four dogs.

We were directed to Barathaven by a medical professional, and it was the best advice we received. Since our loved one’s residency everything we were told has come true. Anytime we call or visit the building is immaculate, we are always greeted with smiles from the staff, and most importantly, our family member is happy.
