“My family have been fans of Touchpoints at Manchester for many years, so when I needed rehab after my open heart surgery Touchpoints was my only choice. I experienced many complications but the amazing nurses and therapists were on top of things every step of the way…I am so surprised that I am going home so soon after all I have been through. My family and I feel confident that I am ready, and we all have the education and services I need to continue my recovery.”
