Thank You to the Staff at Oak Knoll Healthcare Center Thank you for your care and kindness while I was there to begin recuperating from a stroke I had on October 11, 2016...Whatever your role, thank you for your patience when I had a bad day...your strength when I didn’t have any, your encouragement when I had doubts, your “pep talks” when I was discouraged and needed them most, your sense of humor to add some laughs to the day (laughter is the best and cheapest medicine). Some of these may seem like little things to you, but they make the patient feel more like a person who matters instead of just the occupant of a specific bed. I miss your unique personalities now that I’m home. Thank you. I know you were looking out for my best interests while I was at Oak Knoll from October 18 through December 28, 2016. Carolyn S.

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!
