West Side House Worcester
Thank you very much for having us over to West Side. Your staff and your hospitality was outstanding and palpable from the moment we came in.
Our team was all impressed at the attention to detail that Westside has, which carries through in making sure veterans are very well taken care of. The stories you shared with us will be hard to forget! They are very powerful.
We would like to especially the team for giving us a tour, Dr. Gottlieb for coming in to give us an overview of his work, and your exceptional behavior team. The impact they have on people's lives is phenomenal (and we only had a small window into their work and how they approach veterans). As Roberta aptly said: "Our golden rule: Approach is everything!"

When is help needed?
Caregivers don't always know when outside help is needed, or know what kind of help to give when they do. While an emergency or accident may be easy to identify, there are other situations that may signal an elder's need for help:
- Sudden Weight Loss
- Failure to Take Medication
- General Forgetfulness
- Singed Items or Burns
- Suspicious Marks/Bruises
- Unusual Behavior
