  • 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.
