Our Staff

Dear Mr. Sullivan, Our father was a resident of Daniel's House Nursing Home in Reading, Mass. until his death. During this time, he received excellent care from all of the staff. From the time he became a resident, he was comfortable within his new home. Despite his Alzheimer's, he participated in numerous activities because the staff encouraged him and more importantly they treated him with dignity and respect. We always felt at home when we visited Dad and knew he was well taken care of when we were not there.”
