Dear Mr. Arcidi: I am writing to praise the staff members at Whittier Rehab in Westborough, Massachusetts. My mother was admitted to that facility on March 13, 2013 and has been there for 5 weeks. I can’t even begin to tell you how FANTASTIC the staff on the second floor have been. The facility is lovely. It is clean, staffed with extremely knowledgeable professionals and a pleasure to have my mom there. I particularly would like to mention four individuals who have been the most involved with my mother’s rehabilitation. They are Sarah Murphy, Michelle Granger, Emily Gibbs and Heather Myer. Each and every one of them should be commended! I was quite impressed with the entire staff, the way the facility is run and how everyone goes above and beyond to make the patients feel comfortable and the families to feel relaxed. What a fantastic facility you have in Westborough, Massachusetts. I would HIGHLY recommend your facility to anyone and everyone that I come in contact with that needs a rehabilitation facility. You truly have a great staff at the Westborough facility and it really made a difference to my family. —Sincerely, Lisa G. B.

Announcing the new Parkinson’s Wellness Program at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Bradford!

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital is excited to announce its new Parkinson’s Wellness Program. This program was created by Boston University’s Neurorehabilitation Department and has been supported by the American Parkinson Disease Association of Massachusetts. 

The Program Mission is to promote:
• An exercise program specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s Disease.
• A problem-solving approach that helps the individual to deal with mobility, self-care and communication challenges in daily activities
• Strategies for managing health more effectively to optimize day-to-day functioning and quality of life

Whittier’s goal will be to target strength and balance impairments with the intention of improving overall functional mobility and quality of life.  

The patients must be higher level, preferably not yet using an assisted device and currently not experiencing freezing of gait episodes.  They must be able to attend two 1.5 hour sessions per week for 7 weeks. (from 1:00pm-2:30pm each Tuesday and Thursday) 

The cost for the 14 session program is $250.00 and will be run by a licensed Physical Therapist.  Sessions may also have consultations with Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and Nutrition.

Our first 7 week session begins on April 25th, 2017.  
Referrals can be made by calling our Outpatient Department at (978) 469-1425 or emailing nmilad@whittierhealth.com for further information.
