The D’Amore Gracious Redundancy Handbook

At D’Amore Healthcare, every patient embarks on a journey of recovery. During this process, we treat the senses and personalize care in a way that speaks to patients of all different learning styles. The result is a comprehensive treatment program that improves mood, behavior, and cognition.

We use the Gracious Redundancy Patient Handbook to catalog this journey.  Instead of taking notes and doodling in a journal that falls apart after a week or two of use, we designed our Patient Handbook to serve as a guide for our guests, not just during treatment, but as a foundation that will inform their healthcare planning for years to come. This Handbook will guide our patients from their first-day introduction to D’Amore through their Aftercare planning and eventually back out into the real world.  Our Handbook will be with our patients throughout the day as they solve puzzles to reduce anxiety, practice grounding exercises to center their mood and journal to prepare for individual therapy sessions. The material in our carefully crafted Handbook provides patients with the daily practices necessary to achieve a higher quality of life.

My Supports | You’re not alone, we can prove it and so can you!  This section illustrates all the ways that you can depend on new resources and let new people depend on you.

Education | Our brains and bodies have an amazingly intricate design. You deserve to learn more about who you are and how to change your habits and thoughts.

Creativity | A little daydreaming and doodling are necessary to improve your mental health. We made plenty of space to journal, to dawdle over a thought or leave behind an image that doesn’t serve you anymore.

Daily Pages | Jot down thoughts and feelings that connect our lessons to your emotions and experiences.  Take note of encouragement, spend a moment enriching your self-awareness, and be mindful of building new relationships.

Aftercare | The First Year Plan is a launchpad for great things big and small.  However, nothing meaningful is ever gained easily. We begin discharge planning even before you arrive to give you the best snapshot of healthy living uniquely tailored for your diagnosis and history.
