Dear Ms. Roman: I was recently a patient at Whittier, and wanted to give you some feedback. I don’t think I could have had better treatment anywhere. Staff, from clinical through to housekeeping, were uniformly pleasant and helpful. I’d like to thank everyone on the nursing and therapy staffs for their cheerful help and support, and hope you’ll pass these comments on to them. I am an attorney, and most of my practice has been with the mentally ill, their families and treaters, and I’ve worked with a couple of dozen different hospitals. But being a patient gives you a different perspective. ‘Simple’ things, like great food that everyone looks forward to, are therapeutic in themselves. Again, please thank the entire staff on my behalf. Sincerely, Thomas F. O.

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Westborough

Whittier offers the only comprehensive neuro-focused day rehab facility in the Metrowest area. 

 

 

We are now offering admission to our Neuro Day Rehab Program, an intensive stroke and brain injury recovery program that offers physical, occupational and speech/language therapy, as well as regular visits with a Nurse Practitioner focused on care coordination, education, support, health promotion and stroke prevention. 

Available Monday through Thursday from 9-2, our program provides personalized, rigorous rehabilitation combined with social and recreational opportunities. Upon referral, patients are assessed and a program created that accommodates their needs, including frequency and duration of attendance. 

The program is designed to promote independence and functional recovery, and our team works closely to assist the patient to meet their personal rehab goals. Using the gym, the pool and our simulated environments, which include an apartment with a kitchen, a movie theatre, an ATM and a supermarket, each person’s functional progress is carefully tracked and the program adjusted as their skills improve and goals change. 

Treatments are both one-on-one and in groups, and our team is dedicated to the program, so that patients work with the same therapists during their entire enrollment.

Highlights of our program:
• Available Monday - Thursday 9am-2pm
• Comprehensive outpatient neuro-focused rehab program
• Individualized program based on patient’s goals to promote independence and functionality
• OT, PT and S/L and Nurse Practitioner 
• Individual sessions and groups, both on land and in pool
