Dear Stacy: It’s difficult to find the right — or even enough — words to express how thankful my wife and I are for the wonderful care your staff provided to me during my recent month’s long recovery from bladder surgery. From Day 1 every single person with whom we came in contact treated us with respect, patience and kindness and always made us feel that my return to good health was really important to each of them! And, even on days when I took a little step backwards, along with professionalism, everyone brought cheer and even more encouragement...and this was from every level of your staff. It’s just really nice to be able to say, “If we had to go to rehab at any point in the future, Nemasket would be our first choice!” Thank you again for all that you and your staff have done for us! Yours truly, Russell L.

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Bradford

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.
