Touchstone Communities®

Caring For Families, One Generation At A Time.®

By definition, the word touchstone is a set of standards by which qualities are measured and recognized. These qualities, linked to excellence and value, are the very same ones we take very seriously at Touchstone Communities.

Our company’s touchstone: Delivering quality healthcare services in a compassionate environment for the elders living in our communities today and every day. As a family-oriented and family-owned business, this is our passion, and our company’s reason for existing.

Skilled nursing and long-term care, rehabilitation services, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, behavioral care and respite care are the critical services we provide at our 14 long-term care communities and eight Veterans Homes.

By incorporating innovative building designs and technology into our daily operations, Touchstone Communities is leading the way in creating healthful, thriving communities where elders feel comfortably at home and always secure.

Using the Neighborhood Model, Touchstone Communities has developed a new community concept called The Heights®. Located in San Antonio, Pleasanton, Tyler, Tomball, North Houston and Gonzales, The Heights® offers elders a fulfilling quality of life by supporting their autonomy, dignity and choice in an inviting, intimate atmosphere. Spacious family rooms, round-the-clock access to food, daily activities and attentive care are some of the many amenities provided at The Heights® that protect the dignity of elders and enhance their quality of life.

Touchstone also manages the nation’s first community based on the Small House Model, for veterans. At Watkins-Logan Texas State Veterans Home, our veterans live in a residential-style home in a community of 10 cottages. Each floorplan features 10 private rooms and bathrooms as well as its own common kitchen and living areas. This community design gives our veterans increased social interaction while maintaining their privacy and independence.

In addition to ease of living and comfortable floorplans, our Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system enables our team members to access health information instantly, allowing us to focus more quality time on caring for residents.

Others say it, but we live it today and every day. We truly care about residents, patients, their families, team members and the communities we serve.

We are your touchstone to better living.

About Our Name

Webster tells us the word “touchstone” has two meanings:
  1. A stone used to measure or test the quality of metals, such as gold and silver.
  2. A means by which to determine authenticity.

Simply put, Touchstone is a measure of quality and value. “Touchstone Communities®” was chosen as our name because it’s the most effective way to communicate the unique characteristics that aptly describe the special nature of our business and our insistence on quality and integrity.

Today, we are a strong and growing regional owner and manager of skilled care and rehabilitation communities in Texas that has proven to be a true community partner. While others say it, we live it: We truly care about our residents, their families, our team members and the communities in which we conduct business.
