As part of our Community Talk series, Cura was thrilled to be invited to Hill House in the Riverside section of Greenwich, CT. Lisa Crowley, Residence Coordinator and Pat Speroni, Administrator do a wonderful job arranging for a variety of fun and mentally stimulating activities for the seniors who live there. These activities include discussion groups and trips on the Hill House bus to local stores and places of interest such as museums, movie theaters, and more. Classes offered to residents include massage therapy, healing touch therapy, exercise class, tai chi, chair yoga, art class, and computer Instruction..
In September of 2021, Shivonone Mathison presented facts and guidance to Hill House residents about how to achieve compassionate home care, as well as expert information about fall prevention and access to the different health insurance options. The talk was well-received and a flow of questions made the event engaging and interactive. “The landscape for Seniors is constantly changing, so a frequent review of senior resources, technology, opportunities and new challenges is critical for the best senior care,” says Shivonne Mathison.
Hill House is a non-profit independent living facility with 61 apartment congregate homes for well-elderly people of low to moderate income. Founded in 1978 in response to a need identified by the Greenwich Commission on Aging, its mission is to provide a comfortable home in a safe and stimulating environment that encourages older people to be independent, physically active, and involved with their families, friends and community.
Each apartment includes a living room, bedroom, small kitchen, full bathroom, wall-to-wall carpeting, heat and air conditioning controls, emergency call system, security intercom, and is handicapped accessible. In addition, there is a communal living room, dining room, activity room, laundry room, and storage area. Basic services are provided to help individuals who might be experiencing some frailty and would benefit from meal service, housekeeping, and 24-hour emergency coverage. While personal care or medical services are not provided, residents may arrange to have assistance from outside agencies.
