All of the Physical Therapy staff and OT what a TEAM! I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR MORE!!! So caring and right on top of what you need to move forward.

The Staff at the front desk that answered you were all so pleasant also, I was impressed by Whittier Rehab and how well dedicated the employees were. They take pride in what they do. My Case Manager Jennifer was right there for me when I needed her. Terry from Nutrition, Thanks for all your help! Special Thanks to Moses, who always seemed to be there!

Whittier Bradford Transitional Care Unit

Whittier Bradford Transitional Care Unit is Deficiency Free in Recent Massachusetts State Survey!


The annual State survey of Whittier Transitional Care Unit in Bradford, MA has been completed and after two days of inspection the survey team deemed the facility deficiency free. All standards required by the State of Massachusetts were met and no deficient practices were found. During this survey, they looked at areas of nursing, rehab, activities, human resources, social work and more, as well as meeting with resident’s and families to be sure that all requirements and standards were in compliance.
 
Zachary Wilkins, Whittier Bradford Transitional Care Unit Administrator said, “The results of this survey are a true representation of the high level of care provided by the TCU staff day in and day out.  We are very excited about this accomplishment and will continue to provide the best experience possible for all of the residents and families we serve at the TCU.  We credit the staff that dedicates all their time and effort to ensure every resident becomes a part of the Whittier family.
 
The survey process is completed by the Department of Public Health on an annual basis. The federal and state government share the responsibility for ensuring that all facilities under nursing home regulations like nursing homes and transitional care units are in compliance with all aspects of care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the U.S. Department of Human Services oversee the inspection program for nursing homes that participate in the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs.
 
The state surveyors commended the Transitional Care Unit on the high level of care, how beautiful the unit is and our personal favorite about how family-like the unit is.
