Hilltop Home is a private, nonprofit, Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) with a capacity to support 22 children who have severe to profound developmental disabilities and are medically fragile. We provide a comprehensive habilitative program that includes individualized medical, therapeutic, and developmental/ educational services in an intimate, homelike residential setting. The program is designed to assist children with multiple disabilities and medical fragility to reach their fullest potential.
Hilltop Home admits children, age birth through six years, who have severe/profound developmental delays. Our children typically have pronounced medical complications that require specialized, around-the-clock care by nursing staff. Children admitted to Hilltop Home must be eligible for North Carolina Medicaid.
Operating a residential program requires around-the-clock staffing by a variety of skilled, flexible people who, at Hilltop, are capable of “wearing many hats.” Hilltop’s current staff includes an executive director, administrative assistant, Nurse Administrator, Nurse Manager, staff nurses, special education teachers, Qualified Professional (QIDP), Program Director, Human Resource Generalist, direct support professionals (DSP), dietary technician, and housekeeper. Also on staff is a reliable force of part-time employees. In addition Hilltop has a complete therapy department with physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapy. Hilltop Also contracts with community providers for nutrition and psychological services.
Our staff members have diverse backgrounds, but we are proud of a common thread for many staff—previous experience with persons with disabilities. This experience builds a firm foundation of expertise for our program. Hilltop also takes pride in our low staff turn-over rate. Our families value this stability, often relaying how comforting it is to know that long-term personnel are caring for their children.
