A Second Touch was created to assist individuals and their families to navigate community resources. Our goal is to listen and implement a person-centered plan to meet the individual’s needs. Sometimes caregivers are forgotten; at a Second Touch we understand providing direct care for a loved one can be challenging. As our goal is to assist the individual, we also strive to provide caregivers with the assistance needed to make sure their loved ones are getting their needs met. In everything, we strive for excellence.
