Coming Soon: Behavioral Health Specialty Unit


March 1, 2019
Heather Hill Care Communities is proud to offer a full spectrum of nursing services, including ventilator care, on-site dialysis care, and our Dolan Memory Care Program. We are pleased to announce that Heather Hill will soon also offer Secure Adult Behavioral Health Services.

"It only makes sense to continue to expand our offerings," said George Dubic, administrator of Heather Hill Care Communities. "We saw a need in the community, and we want to continue to be the healthcare provider that our community members, doctors, and hospitals can count on to meet their needs."


The unit, which is slated to open in late Spring 2019, will serve patients and residents who require a secure environment while rehabilitating from mental health or behavioral health crisis. The behavioral health programming will focus on medication management; practicing activities aimed at returning to daily life; and, regular group and individual counseling.

"We have a track record of providing quality care, and we know this unit will continue on that track," said Marlayna Olenick, Heather Hill's Director of Nursing Services. "We are preparing to care for these patients and residents by observing similar, successful units throughout the state, and by training our caregivers regularly."

The staff at Heather Hill has recently participated in Physical and Psychological Management Training, which focuses on various aspects of the crisis intervention process. After having undergone training, the staff have a familiarity with many different response options and have skills for analyzing each individual. Management of fear response in a crisis, problem-solving & critical thinking skills, and avoiding the use of physical restraint techniques were all reviewed in training.

"My staff and I are looking forward to caring for these patients," Olenick said. "It means a lot to know that we can serve another sector of our community with the quality care we have always given."
