Finding the best facility for your loved one can be an emotional and challenging time.
HillHouse serves older people with a wide range of needs: • Those who are independent and only need medication reminders • Those who want to live in a more social environment, and • Those who need hands-on assistance or care, or are nearing end-of-life
Nursing Services RNs and LPNs are on site every day to oversee the care of each resident. They manage changes in a resident’s personal care and coordinate with each resident’s health care provider for appointments, pharmaceutical prescriptions, and treatment prescriptions including physical or other therapies.
In addition to licensed nurses, HillHouse employs Certified Nurse’s Aides and Personal Support Specialists to administer personal care to residents who need it. This includes assistance with bathing, toileting, personal hygiene, dressing, walking, and assistance with eating.
Medication Management HillHouse licensed and registered nurses and Certified Residential Medication Aides (CRMAs) manage and administer each resident’s medications and treatments according to the residents’ prescriptions from their authorized health care providers.
HillHouse uses pharmacy services from Guardian Pharmacy of Maine and Wilson’s Pharmacy in Bath, both of which deliver medications directly to us, but families can also use other local pharmacies and bring medications to HillHouse for management and administration.
HillHouse uses locked medication carts in accordance with state regulations and, when possible, bubble packs for safest storage and administration of medications and treatments. We use the electronic medication tracking program, PointClickCare for recording each medication dose administered.
Pharmaceutical Services Guardian Pharmacy of Maine provides monthly pharmaceutical oversight of each resident’s prescription medications, reviewing prescribed medications and treatments for drug interactions and best practice.
Transportation Services HillHouse provides transportation and accompaniment to medical appointments if family is unable to transport the resident or unable to be in attendance.
One round-trip medical appointment per month within a 25 mile radius is provided free of charge. Additional appointments are billed to the resident based on applicable rates.
Housekeeping Services Daily housekeeping services are provided for every resident room, including room cleaning and laundering of bed linens, towels, and personal clothing.
