there's so many new things that we can do all you have to do is be open to it the financial challenges in the Medicare and Medicaid program just add more incentive to try to figure out a different way to do things that is our goal here to come a Lutheran to rehab people and bring them back into their own home environment and help them live safe and independently I think Tacoma Lutheran is a really good example of the not-for-profit mission and focus on doing the next right thing it's real life offerings you know it mimics everyday activities that they're going to be faced with outside of our facility it's been really nice as well as the objective data that we can gain from these tools which is always great as far as documentation and you know charting progress we've got our tech room we've got our therapy gym and we've got our courtyard concepts for those people who can't get out of bed and have mobility difficulties we can bring some of the technology right to the bedside and help them there the time passed passed and its pricing how many muscles it used and I actually felt some benefit from it once they get into the activity they understand the goal and what we're trying to get they often forget about the therapy aspect of it and they're having fun and they're working hard we are so passionate about it here at Tacoma Lutheran because we've seen the progress we want them to remain safe in their homes and to remain active and so that's what we're all about living well staying active being cognizant of your own physical and mental well-being the whole staff has been excellent they've given me a lot of good hints on how to take care of myself when I get home and that's the important thing we've embraced the technology as a central part of our mission I understand why the grandkids like it this is like fun if we have the opportunity to improve someone's life so much the better to watch them take a first step see the smiles on their faces is is really satisfying we're about challenging people to reach their maximum potential getting them up out of that bed out of that wheelchair and if we can get them home safely that's going to be more beneficial for them it's going to be more beneficial for the health care system it's always important to get back home homes home they get that we have to do things differently than we've done things in the past and really have worked hard to develop those partnerships and those collaborative opportunities there's a whole new frontier available technology is going to just open up avenues that are going to really improve the lives of people we come here excited to help we come here with a vision to help seniors improve their lives to give them back on their feet again and get them home you
