Welcome to Touchpoints at Chestnut
Dear Residents and Family Members,
I would like to introduce you to Touchpoints at Chestnut. Our facility offers a variety of clinical programs to meet your individual needs. Touchpoints at Chestnut is a 60 bed facility that reflects a quaint Victorian bed and breakfast style home. We recently renovated the suites on our rehabilitation unit with individual HD televisions, private phones, recessed closets, and hardwood floors. We offer a Touchpoints Therapy Program, which is available to those who are recovering from an orthopedic procedure, cardiac recovery, pulmonary recovery, general medical or surgical procedure, wound care, intravenous (IV) therapy, or pain management.
Touchpoints at Chestnut partners with many healthcare providers in the community to provide consistent care from your hospital stay until the time you are discharged home. The clinical staff at our facility is well trained and delivers the most current and highest level standard of care. The Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists provide services seven days a week in our newly renovated rehabilitation gym. Continue reading
