Robin Hill Farm offers a community inclusive environment combined with individual treatment programs, focused on improving the quality of life for people experiencing the effects of a brain injury. Our small programs are designed to provide structure and consistency in the daily live of the individuals, while stressing community access and community interaction at every level.
Residents, family members and interested parties, including case managers and advocates, sit down with the staff and help define a program that will address the needs of the individual. This plan becomes the basis of each resident’s program through the year. Depending on individual needs and preferences, residents participate in some manner with the daily events in the home. Each resident completes their morning activities of daily living, receiving assistance and teaching from the staff.
A daily range of motion program and/or a daily exercise program also occurs on a daily basis.The schedule varies on a daily and seasonal basis.
Trips to the community of Hillsborough or Peterborough are a part of each residents program. During these trips each resident does their own laundry, banking and personal shopping. Staff assist as much as needed for each resident. Usually a stop at the local doughnut shop, or a lunch out, is included in this weekly trip.
