To Hannah Duston Staff: Mom was admitted to the hospital - She had a bad spell. She needed much care - she didn’t feel well. After a time, her condition changed to fair. She was almost herself - but not quite there. She couldn’t stay at the hospital, yet couldn’t be alone. What could we do until she was ready for home? We looked around almost everywhere, For a placed that offered specialized care. We searched high and we searched low. Then decided Hannah Duston - was where she would go. We were nervous when she arrived - didn’t know what to expect. She was immediately welcomed with the utmost respect. We were afraid this place would make her feel blue. We were pleased to find the opposite was true. Everyone was so friendly from each nurse to those who clean. The atmosphere was the cheeriest that I’ve ever seen. Each OT, PT, each nurse, every food service worker every CNA Receptionist, hairdresser, social worker, the administrator went out of their way, To make mom feel comfortable and welcomed from the very first day. She has improved tremendously - due to Hannah Duston’s care When mom needed you - we are glad you were there. She is headed back to her home - Many thanks to ALL of you, We are eternally grateful for all that you do. Many thanks to one and all - you work so hard and I must confess In the entire world - YOU ARE THE BEST!!! With much gratitude, Judith Z., Marion H.’s daughter

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Westborough

Whittier offers the only comprehensive neuro-focused day rehab facility in the Metrowest area. 

 

 

We are now offering admission to our Neuro Day Rehab Program, an intensive stroke and brain injury recovery program that offers physical, occupational and speech/language therapy, as well as regular visits with a Nurse Practitioner focused on care coordination, education, support, health promotion and stroke prevention. 

Available Monday through Thursday from 9-2, our program provides personalized, rigorous rehabilitation combined with social and recreational opportunities. Upon referral, patients are assessed and a program created that accommodates their needs, including frequency and duration of attendance. 

The program is designed to promote independence and functional recovery, and our team works closely to assist the patient to meet their personal rehab goals. Using the gym, the pool and our simulated environments, which include an apartment with a kitchen, a movie theatre, an ATM and a supermarket, each person’s functional progress is carefully tracked and the program adjusted as their skills improve and goals change. 

Treatments are both one-on-one and in groups, and our team is dedicated to the program, so that patients work with the same therapists during their entire enrollment.

• Available Monday - Thursday 9am-2pm
