NORTHBOROUGH – Whitney Place at Northborough – a SALMON Health and Retirement community – is celebrating 20 years of high-quality senior living and health care.

Employees, staff and SALMON executives gathered at Whitney Place on March 27 to commemorate the anniversary, reflect on the last two decades and honor staff members. The building, located at 238 W. Main St., was built in 2004 and delivers “the right balance of freedom and senior care with on-site services, premium amenities and exceptional programming,” according to SALMON’s website.

“It’s amazing,” said Executive Director Scott Bullock, who also manages the adjacent Beaumont Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center. “What sets us apart is our staff and the relationships they have with residents and other staff members.”

Throughout the celebration, speakers were quick to mention that the staff truly makes Whitney Place special. According to Bullock, 65% of Whitney Place staff members have worked at the company for over 10 years.

“It makes a world of a difference. Families feel comfortable; families feel good having their loved ones being cared for by somebody who has been here for that long… I think it is important to give back to our staff, to recognize our staff — especially the people that have been here from the beginning. I’m very proud,” Bullock said.

Five employees – Mary Benson, Patience Ntim-Gyakari, Wilhelmina Quist, Debbie DeZutter, and Charlotte Mensah — were honored at the event for working at Whitney Place for 20 years. The honorees received a plaque for their two decades of dedication and service.

Outside of the event doors, Whitney Place displayed notes of gratitude left by residents and loved ones.

“I’m not sure where to begin to thank you for all you did for our family over the last 6.5 years,” one note read. “Your true caring made all the difference.”
