Thank you again to everyone at Sippican that was involved in the care of my dear wife. Her days were filled with love and comfort, thanks to the excellent staff at Sippican - from the Program Director to the wonderful woman who cleaned her room. The outpouring of love and care that was shown by the staff was truly touching. I have never encountered such a caring group of employees; If you ever need any recommendations, please don’t hesitate to call me.
