A Word from the Administrator: Why choose Fairhaven?

Hi. I'm Tom Gomes, Executive Administrator at Fairhaven Healthcare Center.

Why choose Fairhaven?  There’s no need for a lengthy discussion here. The answer is simple: Our amazing staff of caregivers is the overwhelming reason why families choose Fairhaven as a long term care or rehabilitation facility for their loved ones!

Often family members find themselves in an extremely difficult situation of choosing a rehabilitation or long term care center for a loved one. This is a daunting responsibility—and is all too often associated with an abundance of guilt—as you likely promised Mom/Dad that you would never send them to “one of those places”.

While selecting a facility based on its physical appearance might make you feel a little less guilty (‘the chandelier syndrome’); it does nothing for the quality of care for your loved one. It’s all about the staff! Period. Please don’t misunderstand me: Fairhaven Healthcare Center is an exquisitely beautiful facility nestled on three acres of meticulously landscaped property in an historic, rural area of Lowell. And while our building is beautiful, it pales in comparison to the elegance of our staff.

I’m often struck when I hear a family member say “Oh, it’s so beautiful here. Mom will love it!”. While the compliments are appreciated, it’s not about the ‘chandeliers’. It’s about the quality of care, and more importantly, it’s about the individuals who are delivering that quality of care—the staff here at Fairhaven!

Come tour our gorgeous campus! Meet the members of our Leadership team! Meet with the Administrator! Chat with the Nurses, Therapists and Aides when you meander through the halls. If you’re not totally captivated by their kindness, compassion and dedication, then perhaps we’re not the right facility for you. While fancy chandeliers may cause a sparkle in your eye, it’s our glowing staff that will ensure Mom/Dad will be happy, healthy and socially engaged during their stay with us.

We hope to see you soon!
