Events at Whittier

Dear Ms. Grasso: Our entire family would like to sincerely thank your facility and its staff for the marvelous job they all did in caring for Teddy L. Without exception each one of your staff gave sincere, loving, compassionate, empathetic, nurturing and patient care as we all worked through this climactic event. You should be very proud to have a team of such excellent professionals. Tun, Jeff, Beth, Ann, Anna, Brian, were just some of your team members that were interfacing with us so delicately. I believe Tun even stayed several evenings well past his shift to sit with Teddy - a sacrifice of love. When I told my friends about the excellent care you provided by repositioning, cleaning and changing Teddy so frequently, they were so impressed. It kept our loved one very calm and comfortable. The entire process was like a feather floating to the floor. Your professionals made the best out of an awful reality. Please forgive me by not mentioning by name all the ones that gave such incredible support. We look forward to working with you all as Peggy is still in your capable hands. With immense gratitude, Jim and Peggy F. along with the extended family

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.
