Richard's Story -- Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program Outcome: 2017
January 11, 2018I went from needing total care to being able to get out of bed myself, move around in my wheelchair to NOW walking with my walker! My family and friends tell me I am a miracle, even Dr. Kruger was amazed at my progress. I went from a future in long term care to now going home, TODAY! I cannot thank enough my surgeon, Dr. Kruger, my family, and the staff at Touchpoints. I have my life back. Home means everything to me. I give Touchpoints a 5 out of 5 rating.

I had only a few hours to decide which rehab to go to. My care manager at the Manchester Memorial Hospital was very helpful in providing information about my options. Due to my illness, I was now on oxygen and needed to make sure pulmonary rehab was on my check list. I chose Touchpoints at Manchester, and I am glad I did. My Touchpoints experiences was wonderful. I feel like I was part of a family here. I will recommend Touchpoints at Manchester whole heartedly.
