Welcome to Trinity Hill Care Center
Dear Resident and Family Members,
I would like to welcome you to Trinity Hill Care Center. My staff and I are dedicated to fulfilling our Center’s mission of “Enriching the Lives of the Residents we Serve”. We accomplish this goal every day by teaching our staff to look at our patients as guests and making their stay as comfortable, effective and enjoyable as possible. Our resident rooms have been upgraded to include amenities like flat screen televisions that will make your stay with us more comfortable. Our “Point of Service” dining program is designed to give our Resident’s the widest selection of meal preferences. Our dedication continues even after discharge with calls from our social work staff making sure that discharge arrangements are working as planned.
Selecting a nursing facility can be difficult. Even after visiting, it’s hard to evaluate the care that each location provides. In an effort to help consumers, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid developed the Five Star Quality Rating System to provide residents and families with an easy to understand summary of nursing home quality.

Three veterans who are current residents at Silver Springs Care Center in Meriden took part in an equine therapy program through Manes and Motions, a Therapeutic Riding Center operated by Hospital for Special Care in New Britain. According to the Manes website, “riding a horse gives you freedom and empowerment through movement. A horse can be a powerful motivator in reviewing or reinforcing many behavioral, physical, mental, social and emotional goals.”

The rain did not hold them back.
