The Family Difference

A Letter from The Lescaults

At Grace Barker, we have evolved over the past five decades and feel that we have made our founder proud of what we are today.  Since 1966, we’ve been on Barker Avenue, providing patients with top-notch medical care and keeping our founder’s dream alive for generations past and present.
The founder is my mother and Mark’s mother-in-law Linda Machado. Her high standards of nursing care are instilled within us and are at the heart of what drives us every day to excellence. 
Because we have been, and will continue to be, a business owned and operated by our family, this is what sets us apart from other healthcare facilities.  We don’t have a faceless corporate headquarters located somewhere else; this is our home. We’re here on the premises every day, making sure that every resident, every staff member, every visitor is treated with the hospitality, respect and care they deserve, and that Linda’s mentor, Grace Barker, would be proud of the legacy she inspired.
We have a unique atmosphere at Grace Barker Health. We treat your loved one and our staff as our extended family. It’s this personal commitment that makes the real difference in someone’s life. This is our life’s work, this is what we do and this is who we are.  
We invite you to come experience this difference yourself and see why so many have chosen Grace Barker Health.

~Mark, Mary Beth and Ben Lescault
