Briar Hill was founded by our family 50 years ago, and our family is as hands-on and involved in our community today as we were more than 5 decades ago. 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.
Our senior rehabilitation services offer respiratory, occupational, physical, and speech therapies by fully licensed practitioners. Our passion for serving seniors in Chardon and the surrounding areas has driven us to ensure that our staff and team members are fully committed to helping each resident return to his or her highest quality of life, with the highest level of function, possible. That’s why we create programs that are custom-tailored to each individual to that ensure appropriate functional skills are identified, learned, and reinforced by our Restorative Nursing programs.
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, chest trauma, emphysema, pneumonia, or similar ailments.
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.
