  • As a kick-off to the holiday season and to show appreciation to its hard working employees, the team at Chelsea Place Care Center held a Spirit Week November 14-20th.  The Week included, as it always does at Chelsea Place, plenty of music, dancing, food and fun. The different theme days included Twin Day, Sports Day, Crazy Hair or Hat Day, Throwback Thursday and more.  Nice work, Chelsea team!
  • To celebrate its hardworking staff, the team at Touchpoints at Chestnut threw an Employee Appreciation Day. No better way to show appreciation than serving some delicious food. The spread was mainly East Indian cuisine prepared by Dunns River, a Jamaican Restaurant in Hartford. The event was a big success and an excellent way to kick off the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday. Chestnut’s Dwayne Mullings, Cori Knutsen and Jennifer Oliveira served the staff.
  • During the month of November, the home care and hospice community honors the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers who make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve. These heroic caregivers play a central role in our health care system and in homes across the nation. According to the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) website, to recognize their efforts, we call upon all Americans to commemorate the power of caring, both…
  • On the November 16 episode of PBS NewsHour, 60 West was featured and profiled in a segment titled “America’s prison population is aging, but care options for older parolees remain limited.”  The segment featured two residents describing how 60 West has impacted their lives and Administrator Jessica DeRing detailing the impact of the care center’s mission on individuals and public policy.
  • On November 11, 2021 the team at Touchpoints at Manchester took a moment to celebrate a big achievement: the care center’s return to Five Star designation with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)! According to the CMS website, CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify areas about which they want to ask questions. The Nursing Home Compare Web site features a q…

“Rated 10/10. The care and the professionalism exhibited by the staff, was the best that I ever encountered, and I had spent 18 months at Yale New Haven Hospital. Given my status, and the status of this facility I would highly recommend it as a 5 star facility for individuals looking to pursue getting their health back to the point it was before the catastrophic event that put them in this place.”

“I just wanted to let you know what a great team of staff you have at 60 West! Your staff have been amazing, going above & beyond to help my brother and to be supportive of me as well. Your social worker Emily has been a tremendous support to [resident]. Anytime I reach out to her she always follows up and gets back to me. She has also helped me navigate some rough patches with him which I found very helpful. Your nursing staff is always updating me as needed. They have been professional and willing to listen to my input which I so appreciate. I know that in the day in and day out of working in a nursing home it can be very challenging. The staff can struggle with making a difference, especially this year! Please know that you and your wonderful team have made a difference in my brother’s quality of life! I can not thank them enough for all that they do! You are all heroes and May God Bless you!”

“In July 2017 I toured 60 West with our daughter and was immediately impressed with the facility and the compassion and care I observed in all the staff I met. I knew this was the place for Ken. My husband was transferred to 60 West later that July in 2017. I was happy that Ken would have a chance to rehabilitate and receive the care he needed. From the beginning of his stay all of the staff, from mental health to dietary, made us feel like family. Kyle was there for me 24/7 with any questions or just to listen when I needed someone to vent too. With hard work, patience, and a caring team, my husband started being himself again. Ken was ready for discharge. Emily (social worker) set all the appointments for doctors and home care services. It was a very organized process and I was very grateful for that. On January 13, 2020 Ken came home. Thank you ALL for your support and care for Kens stay to be a success!!!!”
~ Kim Sabatino (March 2020)
“I like the individualized aspect of my time here. Staff worked with me on the areas I struggled in. My memory was very poor and the staff here worked with me to improve that. This place helped me in so many ways and gave me a new perspective on life. I appreciate everything 60 West did for me.”
~ Resident JA (December 2018)
“Can I convey to you the feelings of gratitude and relief I felt each time he was acknowledged by staff members at 60 West with not a whiff of judgment, but with sensitivity, compassion, gentleness and kindness.”
~ Holly G, Family Member of Greg R
“Living here has re-established my connection to the community and given me a deeper sense of self-worth. It has rehabilitated me in ways the prison system could not because of the outstanding services provided.”
~ Resident JD (March 2018)
“60 west is very nice and very comfortable. The help is very understanding and very thoughtful. I finally found a place that I can call my own.”
~ Resident EB (March 2018)
“The place means a whole lot, the aides are nice to me. I’ve been in six nursing homes and this is the best one I’ve ever been in.”
~ Resident RF (March 2018)
“I have a great roommate and all the nurses, aides, and volunteers are helpful. They help me pursue my goals. When I was in other programs I bounced around, it was uncomfortable, dirty, and devastating. Here, I have an awesome clean bed. It is awesome, perfect, and clean.”
~ Resident FG (March 2018)
“I am a far cry from where I was this time last year. I am feeling extremely blessed and cared for. I currently reside at a nursing home in Rocky Hill where the care is phenomenal. Even though my family is scattered about, I felt like part of something tonight. Amongst residents and their family and friends we we’re treated to a five course meal. They really went out of their way and went above and beyond, making us feel special. I thank them for choosing me to come here and making me feel like part of something really great. I am thankful and grateful for all of the staff here and the amazing job they do.”
~ Resident LA (March 2018)
“A place of hope, and a new beginning.”
~ Resident RJ (March 2018)
“A brand new opportunity to better myself. Without this place I would have been released into the community with nothing. This is the only place of its kind that would give me a chance to establish myself into the community.”
~ Resident MJ (March 2018)
“I love morning walks because I get to be out in nature. I love Bingo, Cardo, and the many activities they put on. I love it because I am good at them. I enjoy the music group on the evening because it is fun, it means friendship, laughter, and camaraderie.”
