To Rebecca Roman, MSPT, Administrator at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital: Dear Ms. Roman, I am going home tomorrow and well on my way to recovery thanks to you and your staff at Whittier. This is my fifth time at Whittier over the past ten years for three different reasons. In every case the expert care and consideration shown by you and your staff have been the basis for my complete recovery. Dr. Jac and Dr. Turchetta gave me excellent care and understood all my needs. Your nurses were excellent and understanding, especially Lindsey. “Benny” gave me excellent care, as always. She is an angel. Seemingly tough, but oh so gentle. Your nursing staff is excellent and was always there when I needed them. Medical and therapy staff such as, Nii, Moses, Joe, Michelle, Heather, Christa, Joslyn et al were always willing to help. Especially Moses. Larry was extremely helpful with my respiratory needs. Disinfecting & cleaning were constant and established the feeling that the constant protection would assure a quick and uncomplicated recovery. My special thanks to your physical therapists. They all had the same “you can do it so try attitude.” You should be proud of your great team. I am genuinely glad that you are here in case I need all of you in the future. Davis R. B.

Nemasket Healthcare Center

Nemasket Healthcare Center Participates with a Float in the 52nd Annual Middleboro Christmas Parade!

Our goal was to connect with the community since we are somewhat isolated out on Marion Road in South Middleboro.  Originally we were just going to pass out mugs filled with a holiday goodie and some marketing material at the parade.  Then some of the more involved staff decided we should do a float, and Anna Demoranville offered her flatbed trailer and truck to create a Nemasket Float.  Ellie Armstrong our Clinical Nurse Liaison and I decided it was a great idea.  With only four weeks until the parade, we put a sign up sheet for volunteers and Anna Demoranville, Renee Andrews, Anne White, Wanda Pittsley, Courtney Seekins, and Dionne Cortes all signed up to help.  Most of the volunteers brought their kids so they could ride on the float!  They arrived as early as 7:30 am to begin decorating the float and completed it by 11:00 am.  The admin area looked like a bomb hit it but the float looked great!
 
It was a bit chilly but everyone bundled up and put on their elf costumes and had a great time participating in the parade.  I set up a table on the sidewalk and gave out Nemasket mugs filled with bags of snowman soup! (Hot chocolate with marshmallows, Hershey's kisses and a candy cane - just add hot water!) All totaled we gave out about 70 mugs and have about the same number left for the next event.  We also gave out apple cider but it was a bit chilly and not too many wanted a cold drink!
 
I met some wonderful persons involved in the local community.  Middleborough on the Move president Judy Bigelow-Costa had a table set up next to mine.  This organization focuses on business growth and development in Middleborough.  She was very happy to network with myself and Ellie (who rode on the float and showed up after the parade ended and continued to freeze in the cold!) and asked us to speak at one of their next meetings.  She also told us that her organization was having a cookie swap to benefit all the residents in nursing facilities in the town, including Nemasket! How nice!  She also told us about Crazy Days and introduced us to the coordinator.  This is a 2 day sidewalk event in August.  We will be looking forward to participating in this event!
 
We also networked with Ed Beaulieu who founded The Future of Middleborough Trust, which sells puzzles to fund GPS bracelets for persons in Middleborough at risk for wandering.  His organization purchases the GPS device minimizing the cost to the individual.  We met the library director and many  town residents, many who know of Nemasket because a grandparent was here at one time.  

All that knew of us had great things to say!
