---Why I think that LHCC was an immediate success is because it was created with success/happiness of the user as being its primary measurement. The quote by Bill Gates goes right in here. The COMPUTER is the most empowering tool there is. It can handle communication, creativity and can be contoured to each individual using it.
---The Computer Club only asks for one thing, ‘’give us an opportunity to make you happy by exploring things that you enjoy...on the computer.’’ You are able to have Maslow peak experiences with minimum effort. In my vision we will increase the times this happens…allowing the patient to, eventually, do the driving when he feels ready. He/she is off and running, pursuing things that were half-heartedly imagined just a short time ago.
---I’ve seen miracles happen in the short time we have been in existence. With the correct coach the mystery and the stigma behind computers has been debunked. The computer is now their raison d’etre [reason to be.] The benefit to the health is positive. Feeling better makes you better. People are able to reconnect with living again…and are taught skills where they can learn to take control of their own lives. They may take control, AGAIN…or, for the first time.
