Hilltop

CORE Health Care’s Hilltop Treatment Program, a small residential facility, serves individuals who have suffered mild to severe brain injuries. Our goal is to help program participants restore self-directed functional ability so that they can eventually live with as much confidence and independence as possible, with minimal need for support services.

In a beautiful home-like setting, Hilltop residents experience qualitative functional outcomes through a consistent and predictable schedule, peer support, individual and group therapy and multi-level intervention-all in an environment that focuses on optimism and fosters hope. Residents receive physical, occupational and speech therapies, incorporating uniquely beneficial activities such as music, art, gardening or animals. Treatment strategies are specific to the resident’s needs for improved physical, cognitive, behavioral and psychological functioning, and treatment plans also incorporate issues and needs specific to each resident’s family. Each resident has their own private bedroom and half bath.

Since biological recovery of an injured brain continues for two years or more post-accident, the typical length of stay at Hilltop for someone with a brain injury ranges from six to 18 months. Program participants must be medically stable and age 16 or older.

CORE Health Care’s licensed professional staff also provides cognitive testing and therapeutic intervention plans for those with brain injuries. Direct care personnel foster a consistent but challenging therapeutic environment for residents learning a variety of compensatory strategies. CORE Health Care’s staff members are experts in brain injury rehabilitation; many have been certified through the Brain Injury Association of America as Brain Injury Specialists.
