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. 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. 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 proudly provide individualized customer service to all our short-term patients and long-term residents. This commitment to personalized care begins on the first day of admission when we get your immediate feedback regarding your stay. We follow through with any urgent concerns and continue to get your participation in regularly scheduled care plan meetings. Continue reading

“I will miss all of the wonderful staff at Chestnut. I have loved working with the therapy department and I can't wait to come back to visit and see all of their friendly faces.””
~ Benjamin Sementilli
“During my stay at Chestnut I have been very happy in the beautiful homelike environment that Touchpoints has to offer. The rooms are very comfortable and beautiful. Most importantly I am thankful to have had such kind, understanding, and caring staff, who have helped me reach my goal of returning to my own home.””
~ Ella Chapman
“I am proud to say that I have been employed with Touchpoints at Chestnut for almost 10 years. As a cook I take great pride in each meal I prepare for our residents. I truly enjoy interacting with each resident during their meals.””
~ Francis Henry
“The staff is very caring. I find that I can go to anybody and get my questions answered. If I request them to do something or find something, they come right back to me with it. They work very hard to provide different programs along with the seasons. They bring in people in musical groups. They have craft groups. I believe there are religious times that are part of the program.”
~ Husband of Resident PC (December 2016)
“It is a marvelous place, as far as I am concerned. She loves the décor of the place as it reminds her of my aunt's home, as far as the style and age of it. I feel comfortable with her being there. They always have answers when I have questions. I cannot imagine anywhere better than Touchpoints.”
~ Husband of MH (November 2016)
“Everyone was great. I didn't have any issues. I thought the care was good, and I would go back if I had to. There was a mid-shift nurse there, Lynn Parentau. She stands out the most to me. She went above and beyond, and I felt very comfortable talking to her. They were all very pleasant, but she stands out. If I asked anyone a question, they would always get back to me with an answer. Overall, it is a great facility. If I had to go back there, I would.”
~ Patient SK (May 2017)
“I appreciate how well they treated the residents. I would recommend it to anyone. I would tell them that it's an excellent place to receive great care. If I need someone to help me, It's important that they do. Touchpoints did a great job at that, so please tell them to keep up the good work.”
~ Patient DJ (May 2017)
