Environment: One of the biggest challenges that faces those recovering and trying to regain their independence is the "Environment" that people recover in. Typically survivors are in traditional rehabilitation programs as in-patients or are at home traveling to out-patient facilities. The problem here is that these individuals are treated like patients under the control and dictated to by physicians and other medical professionals. TCM Restoration is different in that each individual is staying in a five star hotel facility for the length of the entire program. Next each individual has control over their own schedule and we work together with them to accomplish their daily treatments and tasks.
They each have a full breakfast buffet...not that "complimentary breakfast" that has cold cereal, juice or coffee out of a machine and a piece of fruit. This is a full complete breakfast buffet that has vegetables, fruits, juices, Asian choices, fresh pastries galore, bacon, sausage, juices, coffees of your choice, and multiple chefs to make what you want and don't see. The staff here treat you like family and in the evening there is a happy hour offering, free wine, juice, or beer, two hot dishes, finger sandwiches, salad and a dessert bar. The facility is on the river walk with complete exercise facilities and each client is evaluated for a 24/7 medical personal assistant.
Each of our clients remarks that they feel like they are rehabilitating in a spa and vacation atmosphere. The one thing that they have and need is that level of control of their own lives and schedule. When you have a devastating disease or injury you need to regain that level of confidence that you once had, by exercising control over your own schedule you begin to regain that. Even at an out-patient facility you are dogged with travel and the tasks of daily living in between. In an out-patient facility you are also limited in the amount of treatment you are allowed to seek...and the choice of paying it by yourself is not even an option. Here you are a client not a patient and you are in control of your life and future.
