Events at Whittier

WE JUST RECEIVED THIS LETTER AT THE WHITTIER PAVILION Dear Director of Whittier Pavilion, I’m writing this letter of appreciation of your entire staff including all nurses, caseworkers, mental health personnel, and even food staff servers. They have all treated me with the utmost respect and compassion in any and all dealings I’ve had with them. I’m thoroughly impressed with my stay here which initially I wasn’t looking forward to but in my interaction with your staff I’ve been reasoned with and therefore calmed and relaxed afterwards. I will certainly recommend this facility to any people I know that may be in need of a crisis intervention hospital. I sincerely admit that, so thank you very much for all your care and diligence not just for me but for any patients I’ve seen in my past week here everyone was dealt with compassion, dignity and a lot of patience on your staff’s behalf!!! Thanks again and have a wonderful New Year of of 2016. Yours truly

Announcing the new Parkinson’s Wellness Program at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Bradford!

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital is excited to announce its new Parkinson’s Wellness Program. This program was created by Boston University’s Neurorehabilitation Department and has been supported by the American Parkinson Disease Association of Massachusetts. 

The Program Mission is to promote:
• An exercise program specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s Disease.
• A problem-solving approach that helps the individual to deal with mobility, self-care and communication challenges in daily activities
• Strategies for managing health more effectively to optimize day-to-day functioning and quality of life

Whittier’s goal will be to target strength and balance impairments with the intention of improving overall functional mobility and quality of life.  

The patients must be higher level, preferably not yet using an assisted device and currently not experiencing freezing of gait episodes.  They must be able to attend two 1.5 hour sessions per week for 7 weeks. (from 1:00pm-2:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays) 

The cost for the 14 session program is $250.00 and will be run by a licensed Physical Therapist.  Sessions may also have consultations with Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and Nutrition.

Our first 7 week session begins on April 25th, 2017.  
Referrals can be made by calling our Outpatient Department at (978) 469-1425 or emailing nmilad@whittierhealth.com for further information.
