We’ve earned a reputation for providing top-notch health care residence to Northeast Ohio, and our staff has over 100 years of cumulative experience. With use this experience and expertise to provide the best senior care available to seniors living in Chardon, OH. Learn more about these services below.
After your loved one undergoes a major medical event, recovery should be as seamless as possible. To make this happen, we work with your loved one to make sure they are getting all the assistance they need as part of our post-rehabilitation recovery service. We also offer short-term rehabilitation to seniors who need help getting back on their feet before they go back home as part of a temporary arrangement. Briar Hill Health Care also offers skilled nursing and restorative nursing services by qualified and licensed care professionals. Tracheostomy and wound care are just some of the services our nurses provide.
As part of our post-acute services, Briar Hill Health Care provides palliative care, which is specialized services tailored to the needs of older adults suffering from a serious and life-threatening illness. Seniors in our palliative care may not be in the final stages of their lives, but their care is acute. We also provide all the support their family members may need during this difficult time.
The hospice care services we provide differ from palliative care in that patients in hospice care have received a terminal diagnosis. They are in the final stages of their lives and care focuses on making them as comfortable as possible and tending to their spiritual needs.
We also provide respite care, which is temporary assistance to give primary caregivers a break from their caregiving responsibilities. This helps primary caregivers take some time to themselves and avoid burning out. In the end, getting some time to yourself can make you a better caregiver.
All Briar Hill Health Care facilities were designed with seniors in mind. Our mission is to provide a safe living environment that helps older adults, who are no longer able to take care of their day to day activities on their own, live happy, fulfilling lives in caring and compassionate surroundings. Residents of our independent living facilities benefit from not having to spend so much time during the day looking after their home. Besides being time-consuming, activities, like mowing the lawn, cleaning the gutters, and plowing the driveway, can be dangerous and pose a health risk for many seniors. For example, your loved one can take a dangerous fall while plowing their driveway in icy weather. Such a fall can mean multiple visits to the emergency room and even months spent in and out of hospitals and surgeries. Not having to worry about the upkeep of their home will leave your loved one free to do what they would like with their free time.
As part of our home health care plans, we offer private duty homecare assistance and skilled home health. Our private duty homecare assistance can be provided for any client and deals mostly with non-medical services. This includes personal care, companionship care, incidental transportation, errand services, meal preparation, and housekeeping. Skilled home health, on the other hand, is medical assistance and is provided by registered nurses. Some of the services provided include medication management, chronic disease management, tracheostomy and wound care, and therapies.
Assisted living at Briar Hill Health Care is all about independent living and enriching the lives of our residents. Our residents are free to practice any hobbies they would like, or take part in one of a myriad of activities we offer on a regular basis. We offer gourmet dining from healthy ingredients, tailored to a wide range of dietary needs seniors have. As part of our approach to independent senior living, we develop individualized plans for each older adult under our care. This plan is amended on a regular basis depending on the changing needs of our clients. We involve their family members as much as possible as well in order to make sure seniors are getting a well-rounded experience.

Our occupational therapists assist your senior loved one with daily living skills and self-care tasks, such as getting dressed each day and eating meals. Our occupational therapists support seniors with memory loss or other cognitive impairments. We assess and then make recommendations about adaptive equipment, such as wheelchairs, crutches, hearing aids, and dressing sticks.
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.
Seniors with cognitive difficulties or dementia may benefit from speech therapy because it can preserve brain function associated with communication. In addition, it can be effective for older adults with swallowing disorders as speech therapists can suggest a diet plan that reduces their risk of choking while eating.
