Programs and Services

Providing medical support and empathetic caregiving is paramount to extending and enriching resident’s lives. By creating this baseline of health, each resident has the opportunity to reach for goals and dreams.

Our dedicated staff uses person-centered plans to help residents achieve optimal health and maximum independence. Just a few of the Hillside programs and services we provide include: Physical and Aquatic Therapy, Independent Living Skills Training, and Recreation Therapy.



Aquatic Therapy

Hillside has an indoor, aquatic therapy pool that offers a great source of physical therapy for the residents in a fun environment.

Physical Therapy

In addition to participating in our formal physical therapy program residents are welcome to enjoy the beautiful backyard on our ADA accessible paths where they can play shuffleboard, basketball, and ride the adaptive bicycles.

Recreational Therapy

Hillside’s grounds, indoor fitness center, and activities provide the perfect environment for stimulating recreation and fitness.

Sensory Motor Training

Our busy activity room includes a computer lab, a large library of books on tape, a big screen TV, and other adaptive equipment. 

Independent Living Skills Training

Residents attend schools and day programs, community integration programs, and engage in supported employment and community access programs. Transportation is easily accessible to residents through the Santa Barbara MTD bus (#5) as well as scheduled rides with Easy Lift, a private transportation company. Our residents attend religious services, enjoy musical performances, movies and the many activities our community has to offer.

Occupational Therapy

Modifications to every day equipment enable residents to actively participate in a variety of activities of daily living including, creating art, playing interactive games, computer use, and cooking. We also offer integrative technology programs to enhance communication skills.
