In the warm, comfortable and home like atmosphere of the REMEO® Centres all patients have an individualized space, where they can bring their private significant belongings. Visits are supported at any time of the day as well as the sleep overs when ever possible.
Our competent healthcare team takes care of the patients’ needs all day long and is continuously on standby to support their return to normal life.
Improving quality of life, example of the US: Road Trip
At REMEO® facilities, we do not believe that ventilator dependency should dictate the quality of life for an individual. We do not believe patients are doomed to a bedridden life. We do not believe patients are sentenced to a view of a traditional hospital room. We do not believe patients are bound to a lifestyle dictated by ventilator dependency.
With a joint venture partnership with Bordeaux Long-Term Care in Nashville, the US, the REMEO® facility was provided access to a Metropolitan Transit Authority service for disabled individuals. Known as Access Ride, the service allows for individuals to travel far beyond the walls of their room—the service allows for the patients to travel to anywhere within Metropolitan Nashville. A 48 hour advanced notice is the only requirement for the service.
Bedridden? Hardly. Our patients will not be confined by any walls. Our patients will not be defined by any condition or any machine.
At REMEO® facilities, patients who suffer from paraplegia or even quadriplegia are able to experience normalcy in life. They are able to venture out beyond the walls of the facility. They are able travel the great city of Nashville. Where did they decide to spend a day out from the facility? The great American event known as Walmart.
Perhaps as individuals we take for granted the ability to shop at a local store. Perhaps we take for granted the ability to eat at a local restaurant. Perhaps we could all learn from the REMEO® patients what it means to appreciate a simple trip to “the Walmart” as they say in the south.
REMEO® @ St. Margaret’s Center of Albany Success Story
On a clear Monday afternoon in March, a special event took place in Albany (NY, the US). Gabriel’s dream to be a fireman was granted with the help of Make A Wish.
The mayor declared March 12,2012 “Gabriel Currin Day” and presented him with a plaque, hat, and fire jacket.
All loaded in the truck, ready to roll with lights and sirens! Two respiratory therapists, three firefighter/paramedics, and Mom made the trip with a videographer along to capture the event.
With the help of Gabriel’s new friends, the “fire” was safely put out and everyone was safe.
It was a moment when all the world was right.
