Skilled Nursing for Long Term Care
Notre Dame Long Term Care and Rehabilitation Center offers quality care in a warm, home-like environment that is anchored in spirituality and delivered by a team of caring, compassionate, and dedicated staff who embrace a resident-focused philosophy of mind, body, and spirit.
“Upon my first visit to Notre Dame Long Term Care Facility, while visiting a friend who recently had a stroke, I was blown away by this unique facility. Its beauty and charm are due, in part, to the incredible architectural and horticultural design. The fine art that lines the walls are almost all created by retired Sisters. These paintings and prints are so incredibly powerful and moving they create a supreme healing environment. It is anything but sterile, but rather full of life and energy which is so needed in this type of facility. The staff were equally as impressive. They gave me a tour and shared with me the history of the place. Their energy and passion for Notre Dame was contagious. They were as excited as I about this gem of a facility nestled away in the heart of Worcester. My friend, who is in rehab here, speaks highly of Notre Dame. He is doing quite well and recovering more and more each day. I truly believe it is because of the reasons I mentioned above that he is doing so well.”
Bob Labossiere has been living in the Harmony Village in Long Term Care since September 2017. When living at home was no longer an option, his wife Cathy explored several long-term care facilities in the area. The patient, passionate and kind staff, immaculate grounds, and beautiful building convinced her that Notre Dame Health Care would be a place where Bob would receive excellent care in a safe, warm, stimulating environment.
“The staff at Notre Dame is more like family. They take very good care of Bob. He always has lots of activities to keep him busy. My aunt was a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur and lived here, so we were familiar with the facility. In addition to all the other wonderful things Notre Dame has to offer, we were extremely pleased to find a place that embraces the same religious beliefs that we do. The best part of Notre Dame is its Catholic tradition.”
At the age of 34, Charlotte Fleming launched her painting career after training with a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Now at more than 100 years of age, Charlotte has continued her passion for painting. Despite limited use of one hand, she still creates eye-catching artwork for her personal satisfaction and for the Long Term Care annual art show.
“I stopped painting for seven years to do silversmith work. When I came to Notre Dame, I began to paint again. Art makes me feel like I have accomplished something when I finish a painting.”
