Our facility was the place to be on June 10, 2011, as over 60 people gathered for breakfast and a discussion of senior care issues. Hosted by Bill Ring, Administrator of Bear Hill and a Mass Senior Care ambassador, the event was attended by several area nursing center administrators and associate members, as well as residents and staff of Bear Hill and honored guests Representative Jason Lewis and Chairman of the Stoneham Board of Selectman Paul Rotundi.

The event featured a facility tour, a full breakfast and a program with comments by Representative Lewis, host Bill Ring, and Tara Gregorio, Mass Senior Care Director of Government Relations. Representative Lewis, a frequent visitor to Mass Senior Care facilities in his district, shared his views on Massachusetts health care and his belief that health care is a basic human right.  Tara Gregorio outlined the Commonwealth’s plan to create Accountable Care Organizations and the need for a cooperative effort to reduce costs and improve quality of care by reducing unnecessary hospitalizations, and also stressed the need for adequate funding for quality nursing home care in Massachusetts.  The Breakfast is one of many events hosted by Mass Senior Care members with a goal of educating and informing the public about critical senior care issues.

Bear Hill Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is a community of caring individuals eager to welcome new residents and their families.

Established in 1983 by the Franchi family, our facility is not chain affiliated. This affords us the opportunity to provide the highest in quality care and attention to personal detail for each and every one of our residents. Some of our residents make Bear Hill their permanent home, but we also offer comprehensive programs for those in need of sub-acute care, rehabilitation or skilled nursing services on a short-term basis.

We also recognize our role as resident advocates, and seek to ensure that each individual is treated with dignity and fairness. Family members are welcome at all times and are viewed as an integral part of our plan of care. Our services are provided in the spirit of teamwork and strength through service to others.
