About Beacon Place

Beacon Place began as a collaboration between several caring and motivated people interested in doing something to help the community. Solomon Lebovits and two women that have a long history of developing successful person centered programs- LaDonna Jensen and Marilyn Hartle- identified the need for services for survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury and strokes and began the effort to create what became today's Beacon Place.

Randolph Bleiwas, our Executive Director, joined the effort in 2015. Since that time we have identified gaps in services and worked towards filling those gaps. Our counseling services, and planned medication management and medical services, are an effort to close service gaps in TBI, stroke, trauma and mental health services. We have also applied for the New York State Medicaid Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Waiver to help those elderly or disabled that qualify for the waiver to get services they need.

As those who have survived these challenges and their families know Traumatic Brain Injury and these other events can have a profound impact on our life. As a result of them we may feel confused, frustrated, isolated and alone, unsure what to do.

At Beacon Place we provide a range of services to help. Some services are provided at our Highland Mills, New York, site and others are provided in your home or in the community. Our staff of qualified, trained professionals  evaluates your needs and develops a treatment plan together with you to maximize your potential and reach your goals.
