As the result of a minor auto accident, and some related illnesses, I was referred to the Whittier Rehabilitation Center. The quality of care that I received from the caring and highly trained staff of assistants, therapists, nurses and doctors made the critical difference in my recovery. They worked with my family and I to make my stay as productive and short as possible, and to prepare me to be independent when I returned home. I want to thank them publicly for all that they did for me. In particular, I want to extend my thanks to Dr. Alfred Arcidi and Leo Curtin, who clearly set the tone and the expectations for the quality of care. As a resident of Haverhill, I found Whittier to be an outstanding resource.”

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.
