Dear Meghan, I am writing this email to thank you so very much for being instrumental in arranging for the private van that allows my sister, Helen, to visit my mother, Marion B. Helen has told me many times that she is happy at the adult home. I feel that this happiness comes from the good care that she is receiving from all the workers at Whittier Place. The caring is evident not only to my sister, but to me as well. Whenever I call with questions, your office staff is always willing to do as much as they can to help me. Your staff has told me often that Helen means a lot to them and shared their experiences with Helen like listening to her poetry, giving her companionship, etc. When I visit Helen many times your staff will come up to us and give Helen words of encouragement about many different things or talk about a shared experience that they had with her. My sister, Helen, means a lot to me as I think you know so it is very reassuring to me that Helen is so well taken care of at Whittier Place. Thank you again. —Mary S., Reading Recovery Teacher, Test Coordinator

New England Aquarium penguin beguiles nursing home residents; tuxedo-clad bird's visit is a first.

Some seniors in a Haverhill nursing home got a surprise visit by a little guy that is normally used to put a smile on kids faces. But he had the same effect on the seniors. Roast Beef is an African Penguin from the New England Aquarium.

The aquarium got a letter from one of the residents asking for the visit, and they were so touched by the letter they brought Roast Beef out for a visit. He was a hit and clearly has the ability to make folks of all ages smile.
