NBC Connecticut shot a commercial for iCare and Touchpoints Rehab to air in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. It featured the very photogenic staff and residents of Touchpoints at Farmington, shot in the dining room, rehab gym, lobby, spa and resident rooms. Narration and framing came from Touchpoints at Bloomfield’s talented Director of Nursing, Shanta Griffiths. Keep an eye out for the commercial to roll when the Olympics kick off on February 9th on NBC.

But in a short time, due to all the great care from Rehab, Nursing and the onsite Respiratory Therapist, I gained strength and most importantly the confidence to do more and more each day.
