Welcome to Touchpoints at Manchester
Dear Residents and Family Members,
Welcome to Touchpoints at Manchester. We are proud to have an outstanding team, evident in our CMS Star rating, American Health Care Association awards and exceptional survey outcomes. Touchpoints of Manchester is a proud member of the St. Francis Hospital Post-Acute Care Network, as well as a partner in the accountable care organization (ACO) of Eastern Connecticut Health Network.
I have been a licensed skilled nursing facility administrator with a successful track record since 1990 and I firmly believe this stems from my philosophy of “always just do the right thing”. Our Director of Nurses, Lori Aquilina, leads a strongly motivated experienced nursing department who treats the ‘whole person’ as we strive to meet the physical, emotional, and psychosocial needs of all our residents. This facility treats resident care with a holistic approach and our team follows the company mission that they will “enrich the lives of the residents we serve”.
The recipient of deficiency-free surveys, AHCA awards and consistently high CMS star ratings, we are a leader in post-acute, rehabilitative care. Services also include a secured behavioral health program with a strong recovery-based model and our signature, specialized program for congestive heart failure rehabilitation. Continue reading
