Our Staff

Few family decisions can be more painful than the recognition that a loved one needs to be placed in a nursing home...In the last eight years, our family placed its faith in Sippican Healthcare Center in Marion. We entrusted, until their deaths, four critically ill family members: an aunt, a father, a husband and most recently our beloved mother. It is difficult to find adequate words to describe our connectedness with Sippican. In the case of each family member, our faith was well-placed.
