Unwavering Support From a Loving Community
There are a variety of reasons individuals seek out our communities for either long-term care or short-term care.

Here is how we support you and your loved one and how you can support your loved one as well.
First, we encourage regular visits. At Touchstone Communities, our patients are surrounded by loving and caring staff as well as exposed to daily group activities keeping your loved one entertained, engaged, and active. In addition to the skilled care community, your loved one will have daily access to, we also recommend regular visits from loved ones to assist in keeping spirits up and moods high. Your presence also reinforces that you’re always thinking of your loved one.

Moving into a skilled care community for long-term care can be a big transition so we suggest providing all the encouragement a person can get.
One of our favorite suggestions for support is to join your loved one for a meal. Our communities offer fine dining that can be tailored to dietary needs and is simply just delicious!
