Our History

Robin Hill Farm was established in 1983 by the Donovan Family, who recognized the need for community inclusive rehabilitation designed specifically for adults who were survivors of traumatic brain injury. With a multigenerational background in extended care, we observed survivors languishing in rehab facilities, who were medically stable, and really needed the next step, community-based cognitive rehabilitation.

Our first program was started in the White House, which was our family home, with 1 resident. In 1985, the house was remodeled and expanded to accommodate 6 ambulatory Residents, and was licensed by the state as a Residential Treatment and Rehabilitation Facility (RTRF). That same year, we were inspected by the Veteran's Administration, and authorized to offer treatment to veterans who had sustained brain injuries while on active duty.

In 1986, an adjacent family residence, the "Blue House", was purchased and remodeled to accommodate those brain injury survivors with mobility issues. It has a capacity of 8, and is wheelchair accessible. The upstairs two bedroom apartment is meant to be a transitional living space, and serves as a step towards living in a less restrictive environment.

In 1989, Jeremiah Donovan Jr., one of the original founders passed away, and responsibility for the programs began to be assumed by the next generation.

The Supported Residential Program was added to the main campus in 1983, after hearing from families of survivors who were medically stable, but had significantly more involved need than those we began serving in 1983.

In 1994, we established the first off-campus program, the Meredith House. It currently serves 5 residents, and is wheelchair accessible. The following year, Robin Hill established the independent apartment program in Peterborough, which combined the least restrictive philosophy with 24-hour on-site support.

In 2006, we opened a unique community-based program in Peterborough, by combining our apartment concept with the original "RTRF" program, in a walk to town location that truly reflects our community inclusion efforts. "Summer Street" has 4 supported apartments, a two bed traditional apartment and 3 wheelchair accessible RTRF licensed beds. It is truly a continuum within a continuum.

In the Spring of 2012, we expanded again in Peterborough, opening Wilton Hill, which has 5 licensed beds. Similar to our Meredith House model, Wilton Hill offers access to the community, and is designed to provide maximum assistance for those with mobility issues.
