Thank you to the Administration of Nemasket Healthcare Center, The family of Marjorie M. L. would like to bring to your attention a very caring nurse—I only know her first name—Lisa. She is studying for her R.N. My Mother was in a real unresponsive state and wouldn't eat, talk or smile. Lisa suggested a medication may be causing this type of change in her personality. She's now back to her smiling & responding to everyone who will talk or ask her questions.
