Events at Whittier

Dear Elaine: It is with profound appreciation that I write this letter to you to acknowledge the outstanding care that I received during my three week stay on the Transitional Care Unit. Without exception every member of the staff demonstrated professional behavior and standards in the performance of their duties and responsibilities. Today I am able to walk independently due in large part to the care I received while on the TCU. I have every confidence that my recovery was significantly enhanced by the caring attitudes and competent practices of the staff. I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to the following individuals: Chris, Kayla, Nicole, George, Sheryl, Greg, Brittany and Billy. I also want to extend my sincere appreciation to Allison, Catherine, Kelly and Maria who consistently went above and beyond in attending to my clinical and personal needs. Elaine, may I take this opportunity to thank you for the countless kindnesses and professional courtesies you extended to me. I assure you that they were deeply appreciated. God Bless. —Sincerely, Patricia D, MS, MA, RN (Retired)

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.
