Dear Mr. Arcidi: I am writing to praise the staff members at Whittier Rehab in Westborough, Massachusetts. My mother was admitted to that facility on March 13, 2013 and has been there for 5 weeks. I can’t even begin to tell you how FANTASTIC the staff on the second floor have been. The facility is lovely. It is clean, staffed with extremely knowledgeable professionals and a pleasure to have my mom there. I particularly would like to mention four individuals who have been the most involved with my mother’s rehabilitation. They are Sarah Murphy, Michelle Granger, Emily Gibbs and Heather Myer. Each and every one of them should be commended! I was quite impressed with the entire staff, the way the facility is run and how everyone goes above and beyond to make the patients feel comfortable and the families to feel relaxed. What a fantastic facility you have in Westborough, Massachusetts. I would HIGHLY recommend your facility to anyone and everyone that I come in contact with that needs a rehabilitation facility. You truly have a great staff at the Westborough facility and it really made a difference to my family. —Sincerely, Lisa G. B.
