For more than 40 years Nonotuck Resource Associates has helped transform the lives of hundreds of people with intellectual and physical disabilities by offering the personalized service of shared living and Adult Family Care (AFC). To meet the ever increasing demand from families for these non-traditional, value based services, Nonotuck recently added Kelly Thorndike, Ryan O’Kane and Alicia Thatcher to the staff of its Kingston office at 63 Smiths Lane in Kingston, Massachusetts.
Kelly Thorndike joined Nonotuck as an AFC RN over the summer. A Rockland resident, she graduated with a nursing degree from Emmanuel College in Boston in 2003 and previously worked at Falmouth Hospital, the Shriner’s Burn Hospital for Children and at Norwood Hospital.
Ryan O’Kane, a Pembroke resident, also started with Nonotuck over the summer as an AFC Care Manager. He previously worked as a counselor for people with developmental disabilities at Friendship Home Inc. in Norwell.

Prior to Nonotuck, Alicia worked at Southcoast YMCA in New Bedford and in the Wareham school system. She is also a noted volley ball coach.
“It goes far beyond having the professional qualifications to do the kind of work we do at Nonotuck. It requires a unique combination of character and caring. Kelly, Ryan and Alicia have those attributes and we are delighted to have them on board,” said George Fleischner, executive director of Nonotuck Resource Associates, Inc.
