Our Staff

One day my wife and I decided that it was time to move to an adult home/assisted living center. We shopped around and decided on Whittier Place in Ghent. The food is great, the staff is good, and housekeeping is wonderful, nursing staff is attentive to all the resident’s needs. Activities are available, we have numerous events throughout the year. The home is run by a vibrant, remarkable, caring Administrator, Meghan Kelley. If you want to get things done go to her, her door is always open. We are pleased with our decision thus far, we have resided here at Whittier Place going on 3 years now, and highly recommend to anyone looking for assistance to look into this home. A plus is that they also have a Skilled Nursing Center and rehab on the premises should you need it. Cordially, Doris A. W. & Joseph W.
