One day my wife and I decided that it was time to move to an adult home/assisted living center. We shopped around and decided on Whittier Place in Ghent. The food is great, the staff is good, and housekeeping is wonderful, nursing staff is attentive to all the resident’s needs. Activities are available, we have numerous events throughout the year. The home is run by a vibrant, remarkable, caring Administrator, Meghan Kelley. If you want to get things done go to her, her door is always open. We are pleased with our decision thus far, we have resided here at Whittier Place going on 3 years now, and highly recommend to anyone looking for assistance to look into this home. A plus is that they also have a Skilled Nursing Center and rehab on the premises should you need it. Cordially, Doris A. W. & Joseph W.

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Bradford

Heroic Haverhill mom who risked her life to save her baby is improving tremendously at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital.

We are so proud to report that Christina Simoes is now able to move both of her legs and recently sat up for the first time since she was hurt.

Christina broke her back last Wednesday when she jumped three stories from a burning building to save her little boy after a fire engulfed her Haverhill apartment building. She spent the past week confined to a bed, but with the help of her therapists twice a day at Whittier, she can now visualize the realization of her two goals: to walk again, but first and foremost to hold Cameron, in her arms standing up, once again. 

I know that even if it takes a year, you know, I’m going to be able to hold him and pick him up and do all my mommy duties,” she said.

We are honored to help her achieve her goals and get on track to getting back to her life!
