Briar Hill Healthcare Residence was founded over 50 years ago, and our family is as hands-on in our community today as we were in our beginnings. We’ve earned a reputation for providing top-notch care to Northeast Ohio, which is complemented by our staffs 100 years of cumulative experience. Read more about the services we offer to elderly residents in need of senior care in Burton, OH below.
All of our care is individualized, which means it is tailored to your loved one’s needs. This is very important following a medical event when everything should be done to make sure a senior get back on their feet as soon as possible.
We offer a wide range of services as part of our post-acute care. Our post-hospitalization recovery is focused on helping seniors transition back to independent living in a safe environment following a major medical event. Our short-term rehabilitation is similar but is provided on a temporary basis. Many of our services, like wound care and tracheostomy care and IV therapy, is performed by our licensed nurses who are skilled and trained in restorative nursing residents in a caring and compassionate environment. We also offer long-term care (which entails both medical and non-medical activities to make sure seniors stay healthy and safe for a prolonged period of time), palliative care (specialized care for seniors living with a terminal illness or condition focused on comfort as opposed to finding a cure), hospice care (similar to palliative care but patients here are in the final stages of their lives), and respite care (developed to help primary caregivers of seniors manage their responsibilities both towards their loved ones and their job and other family members).
At Briar Hill Health Care we want to provide older adults with a dignified way to continue living independently. With the tasks of everyday living taken care of, seniors can live their Golden Years on their own terms, safely. There is a tremendous benefit to being able to let go of worries concerning taking care of one’s home, cooking, cleaning and everything else a senior may not be so able to do on their own. Besides the fact that many of these activities take up a lot of time, particularly for seniors, they are dangerous and put older adults at risk of serious injury. Falls are the number one cause of emergency room admissions of seniors and should be avoided at all cost in order to help seniors lead enriched independent lives.
We take home health care seriously here at Briar Hill Health Care. That is why we provide both private duty homecare assistance and skilled home health. The major difference between the two is that the former is concerned with non-medical activities, whereas the latter is provided by licensed nursing professionals. Private duty home care assistance includes services like personal care, companionship care, incidental transportation, errand services, meal preparation, and housekeeping. Skilled home health, on the other hand, includes medication management, chronic disease management, tracheostomy and wound care, and therapies.
Our assisted living services are tailor-made to make sure seniors are living life to the fullest. Not only do we provide a safe environment to help seniors live independently, we work on making sure they are staying active and participating in activities that enrich their lives for the better. We also provide delicious, gourmet meals seniors can enjoy in a communal environment, helping seniors stay socialized. We include family members in the development of an older adult’s plan with us here at Briar Hill Health Care.
Our senior rehabilitation services offer respiratory, occupational, physical, and speech therapies by our full team of licensed practitioners. Our passion for serving seniors in Burton, Ohio and the surrounding areas ensures that our staff and team members are fully committed to helping each resident return to his or her highest level of function possible. We create custom programs that are specifically tailored to each individual, ensuring appropriate functional skills are identified, learned, and reinforced by our Restorative Nursing programs.
Our occupational therapists assist your senior with daily living skills and self-care tasks, such as getting dressed each day and eating. Our occupational therapists also support seniors with memory loss or other cognitive impairments. We assess each individual, and then make recommendations about adaptive equipment, such as wheelchairs, crutches, hearing aids, and dressing sticks, if and when they are necessary.
Our physical therapists diagnose physical issues that restrict movement in your senior loved one, and use exercises and/or other techniques to ease any pain and increase mobility and muscle strength. Our physical therapists also create custom fitness programs designed to help seniors prevent injuries and illnesses and live a more active lifestyle.
Respiratory therapy can help seniors and older adults breathe easier with treatments specially designed to preserve or improve pulmonary or lung function. It is ideal for seniors who are living with ailments and conditions such as congestive heart failure, emphysema, pneumonia, chest trauma, or similar conditions.
Seniors with cognitive difficulties or dementia may benefit from speech therapy treatments for a number of reasons. Speech therapy can preserve critical brain function associated with communication. In addition, it can be effective for older adults and seniors with swallowing disorders, as speech therapists can suggest a diet plan that reduces their risk of choking.
