Geropsychiatric Unit

We are writing to express our sincere gratitude to the members of your staff who care for our mother, Lucille C. The first person we want to acknowledge is Linda Tuxbury. Linda has been our support from day one at Port Rehab. She handles all the correspondence that we received through the Mass Health application process. We trust Linda completely and feel that she goes over and beyond her duties. We are happy with Lucille’s care on the floor as well, she is always well kept and seems very happy. Port Healthcare provides us with the peace of mind knowing that our mom is being well taken care of. Lastly, we want to thank Joe for being our first point of contact at Port. Well before Lucille moved to Port, Joe gave us a tour of the facility. Thank you Joe for taking our mom when we had no idea where to move her. We will never forget your kindness. —Sincerely, Roger & Janet C.
