Dear Patients, Residents and Families
Open to Visitors with Precautions
With few limitations, visitation is now allowed for all residents at all times, while continuing to follow all Core Principles of COVID-19 infection prevention (CMS QSO-20-39-NH REVISED). Outdoor visitation is still preferred where possible, even in lower risk community conditions and even when residents and visitors are fully vaccinated* against COVID-19, because it generally poses the lowest risk of transmission due to space and air flow. Virtual visits using technology (e.g., iPad) are also available to all residents.read more

You’re simply the BEST!!
To Wakefield Center:
Lawrence S. is my brother and has been a resident at Wakefield Center for almost 3 years. I live in Holland and can only visit once a year but am in contact with him weekly. This is what I have to say about this facility... You’re simply the BEST!! No doubt our family has been through a lot trying to get my brother settled. It is so reassuring to see how happy he is in his home there. I am so impressed with your wonderful team of nurses. You have touched my brother’s heart. When I see how happy he is, it puts a smile on my face. Hugs to all of you! All you nurses to be admired, Top Team!
Strong and walking!
When Sam first came to Wakefield in May he was very weak and was a fall risk. Now after working with Therapy he is strong, walking all over the unit. Great job Sam!
