Dear JoAnn: I want to personally thank you, and Kim, and the entire qualified staff at Masconomet Healthcare for your incredible and crucial part in my successful rehabilitation. As you know, when I arrived at Masconomet last Spring, I was in pretty bad shape and was unable to walk. I was wheelchair bound having suffered extensive injuries from an automobile accident last January. The worst of the damage was having suffered two broken legs, both upper and lower legs were broken. I now have steel plates in both of my legs, from my hips to my knees and from my knees down to my ankles. I credit my fast moving recuperation and my ability to walk again to the people at Masconomet, particularly to Bill Carey. Under Bill’s care and guidance and his constant pushing me to limits that I didn’t think possible, along with his continued positive motivation, I began to actually take my first steps again a lot sooner than I thought possible. Today, I am back working, driving a new car, and enjoying life to its fullest. This would not be possible without your help and the help and kindness of all of the folks at Masconomet. I will be forever grateful to you all. Thanks a million, Jim S.

Whittier Bradford Transitional Care Unit

Whittier Bradford Transitional Care Unit is Deficiency Free in 2017 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.
