To Hannah Duston Staff: Mom was admitted to the hospital - She had a bad spell. She needed much care - she didn’t feel well. After a time, her condition changed to fair. She was almost herself - but not quite there. She couldn’t stay at the hospital, yet couldn’t be alone. What could we do until she was ready for home? We looked around almost everywhere, For a placed that offered specialized care. We searched high and we searched low. Then decided Hannah Duston - was where she would go. We were nervous when she arrived - didn’t know what to expect. She was immediately welcomed with the utmost respect. We were afraid this place would make her feel blue. We were pleased to find the opposite was true. Everyone was so friendly from each nurse to those who clean. The atmosphere was the cheeriest that I’ve ever seen. Each OT, PT, each nurse, every food service worker every CNA Receptionist, hairdresser, social worker, the administrator went out of their way, To make mom feel comfortable and welcomed from the very first day. She has improved tremendously - due to Hannah Duston’s care When mom needed you - we are glad you were there. She is headed back to her home - Many thanks to ALL of you, We are eternally grateful for all that you do. Many thanks to one and all - you work so hard and I must confess In the entire world - YOU ARE THE BEST!!! With much gratitude, Judith Z., Marion H.’s daughter

The Whittier Pavilion

Team from The Whittier Pavilion raises money in the 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer's Seacoast Area Walk Foundation!

September 29, 2013 — As the morning dew slowly vanished and the sun rose over the majestic Pascataqua River, Strawbery Banke, in Portsmouth NH, became alive with those supporting a cure for Alzheimer’s.  

Whittier’s own Brian Burke (with daughters Madeline Burke and Katelyn Burke), Kelly Barr, Holly Belanger, Ruth Jerez, Melanie Lamar, Megan Sirois & Jameson Pinette (Director of Community Relations at The Whittier Pavilion) wholeheartedly joined the thousands of enthusiastic walkers.  Over $350 was raised by the dedicated Whittier team.  

The scenic three mile walk looped around Portsmouth’s core, twisting and turning on historic brick paved sidewalks, breaking way to magnificent views of the oceanfront.  The genuine smiles of delight along with devotion second to none, motivated each step the team members took.  It is no surprise that countless supporters look forward to this day, year after year.
