Ex-Rockingham VNA Nurse Accused of Sexually Abusing 88-Year-Old

A police officer turned visiting nurse was indicted in Rockingham County Superior Court following a complaint he sexually abused an 88-year-old patient.
The indictment of Robert Allore stems from a complaint first received in October by the state Office of Professional Licensure and Certification from the New Hampshire Adult Protective Services, saying that he groped and kissed a woman in his care while with the Rockingham Visiting Nurse Association in September.
Allore was indicted on two felony counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault and four sexual assault charges.
According to the complaint first received on October 12, Allore "failed to maintain professional boundaries" with the woman, requesting sexual favors and engaging in sexual behavior. The Rockingham VNA had already fired Allore after receiving the initial complaint.
An "emergency suspension" of Allore's nursing license was granted by the Board of Nursing on October 19 after the complaint was received, and the board learned he was trying to find work with a rehabilitation facility, according to documents.
Allore signed a Voluntary Preliminary Agreement on October 25 in lieu of the suspension that he would not practice nursing in the state of New Hampshire during the investigation of the allegations, pending further legal action and an investigation by Raymond Police.
Fremont Police Chief Jon Twiss told WMUR, the first to report on the indictment, that Allore had worked as a part-time police officer between 2000 and 2015. Allore received his nursing license in 1997.
The Rockingham Visiting Nurse Association, an affiliate of Exeter Health Resources, is a non-profit agency providing home health care, community outreach, and services. The VNA serves all of Rockingham County plus Barrington, Durham, and Lee in Strafford County.
