"...the emphasis at Robin Hill continues
to be one of family living away from the more traditional institutional
approach. In what's know as the 'White House' one gets the feel
of a 'country inn'."

Hill Farm by the Dept. of Veteran Affairs (VA)
the full report...
The original "Robin Hill" program
The WHITE HOUSE is located on the main campus in West Deering,
NH, and is home of the original "Robin Hill" program.
The White House offers 24 hour supervision in a non-institutional,
community based environment.
Residents of this program should be independent in their mobility,
able to navigate some stairs independently, and possess the ability
to exit the building with minimal verbal cueing.
The White House Program provides:
A structured, low stimulus environment for 8 residents
Daily cognitive rehabilitation services
Assistance with ADL's (activities of daily living), range
of motion and community reentry skills
Skill building based upon a written rehabilitation plan,
with definable goals and objectives
A homelike atmosphere coupled
with modern life safety features such as central alarms, sprinklers
and emergency exits.
The White House is staffed on a 24 hour basis, and is licensed
by the State of New Hampshire as a Residential Treatment and Rehabilitation
Residents of this program should be ambulatory, and typically
are fairly independent with ADL's. Being a community-based program,
residents of the White House are assisted by staff with banking,
shopping, leisure activities and off-site
therapeutic recreation such as pool therapy and horseback
All of our programs are designed to offer the resident maximum
independence in the least restrictive environment. Conversely,
staff are present to provide a "safety net" for the
resident, as he or she attempts to negotiate community inclusion.
