Each Resident is unique.

Testimonials & Awards
A small reflection of what makes Quabbin Valley Healthcare so special.
- "The two weeks I spent at Quabbin Valley, I was treated extremely professionally, but also like a guest in someone's home and returned home healthier and in less pain than I have been in, in over two years. I really cannot say enough about how pleased I am with my experience at Quabbin Valley Healthcare. Should I ever need any rehab or longer term care, I will undoubtedly choose your facility."Alan T.
- Dear All, Thank you so much for all your tender loving care and aid to walk again. When I arrived at your facility, I never thought I would be able to move, sit or be so independent after such an extensive surgery. You all showed me your professionalism and compassion. I appreciate and will never forget how you helped me to believe all can be better again. Thanks to all of you,Sherry H.
- To everyone on the staff of QVHC, I deeply appreciate the care and concern you all extended to my mother, Sophia, during her illness and residency at QVHC, My family and I are grateful for the quality of care at your facility. Thanks to all of you,Linda M.
- We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for the care you all gave to our mother, Helen. It's always upsetting to admit that family is no longer able to care for a loved one. After observing your respect, concern and care for the residents, we knew it would be o.k. to put her in your care. We could see that she was very content. We'll always be grateful to everyone at Quabbin Valley Healthcare. Sincerely,Barbara, Leo, Ron & Grandchildren
- Your names are too many to mention but the love and kindness shown to our Mom are recorded on and in our hearts. Thank you for all the hugs mom received on a daily basis - we know she appreciated your care and concerns far more than she may have voiced. May God bless you all with His immensurable blessings. Our condolences to each of you who cared and ministered to Mom in your own special way. With all our Thanks,Susan & Leo
- To all the dear folks in Prescott, I had to write and thank all the wonderful people that took care of me. Your compassion and understanding was greatly appreciated. Your love and help is something we don't see or get everywhere. Thank you so much and love to everyone,Carolyne L.
- Dear Marie I've just returned to Virginia after a holiday visit to my mother in Orange. You'll be pleased to know she's doing very well and is happy to be back in her home (with some extra help). I never properly thanked you - and the other members of the QVHC staff for taking such good care of her last spring and summer. Please share my gratitude with Sharon & everyone else who were all so helpful, compassionate, tactful and professional (I'll be sending a separate thank you to Jackie. She was also great with my mom.) Thanks again and best wishes to all.Anne H.
