To Hannah Duston Staff: Mom was admitted to the hospital - She had a bad spell. She needed much care - she didn’t feel well. After a time, her condition changed to fair. She was almost herself - but not quite there. She couldn’t stay at the hospital, yet couldn’t be alone. What could we do until she was ready for home? We looked around almost everywhere, For a placed that offered specialized care. We searched high and we searched low. Then decided Hannah Duston - was where she would go. We were nervous when she arrived - didn’t know what to expect. She was immediately welcomed with the utmost respect. We were afraid this place would make her feel blue. We were pleased to find the opposite was true. Everyone was so friendly from each nurse to those who clean. The atmosphere was the cheeriest that I’ve ever seen. Each OT, PT, each nurse, every food service worker every CNA Receptionist, hairdresser, social worker, the administrator went out of their way, To make mom feel comfortable and welcomed from the very first day. She has improved tremendously - due to Hannah Duston’s care When mom needed you - we are glad you were there. She is headed back to her home - Many thanks to ALL of you, We are eternally grateful for all that you do. Many thanks to one and all - you work so hard and I must confess In the entire world - YOU ARE THE BEST!!! With much gratitude, Judith Z., Marion H.’s daughter

Apple pie has made a whole new set of friends for Justin Frasca.

Every Sunday, the 10-year-old Haverhill boy helps deliver pie to about 25 residents of the Hannah Duston Healthcare Center on Monument Street.

"It's something I just really like to do," he said.

Justin, a fourth-grader at Pentucket Lake Elementary School, started delivering pies in February when his grandfather Joe was a patient at the nursing home.

When Justin was visiting him one Sunday, he noticed that one resident's daughter was baking apple pies for the residents.

He asked if he could help deliver the pies and he enjoyed the experience so much that he's done it every week that he's been available to do so.
