Touchpoints at Bloomfield Celebrates Shark Week
August 16, 2019The staff and residents of Touchpoints at Bloomfield had an outstanding time dunking the “shark”, Administrator Jaime Faucher.

The week included a visit from a shark expert who spoke on a shark’s day to day life, made shark teeth necklaces and of course watched the popular 1970’s film Jaws.
The rain did not hold them back.

It ended up being a beautiful and cool day for the residents on this second annual trip with the Gateman beating the Red Sox 3-2. The residents had a great time and were excited to see the Touchpoints name up on the scoreboard as the park welcomed groups to the game.
