Nemasket Healthcare Center

The family of Elizabeth (Betty) B. would like to thank you for the abundant kindness, care and concern you provided our dear Mom while she was at Whittier. Your jobs and the services you provide are challenging. Not everyone is cut out for that line of work, but we would like to commend you and your organization for putting together a staff to be proud of. While we were blessed to have received excellent care from the staff at Whittier, we would like to give special thanks for the sincere kindness showed to our Mom, Betty, and to our family by Liz and her co-workers. These ladies and men are a true credit to the nursing profession and we wish them the best in all of their future endeavors.
