Few family decisions can be more painful than the recognition that a loved one needs to be placed in a nursing home...In the last eight years, our family placed its faith in Sippican Healthcare Center in Marion. We entrusted, until their deaths, four critically ill family members: an aunt, a father, a husband and most recently our beloved mother. It is difficult to find adequate words to describe our connectedness with Sippican. In the case of each family member, our faith was well-placed.

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!
