TCC has 7 rooms with adjoining doors so that we can easily accommodate couples. We are pet friendly and we have resident birds, fish, and cats. All exit doors are secure (and some in-house doors) with swipe cards that are used by staff to access locked doors. The wander guard system is in place. A call bell system has also been upgraded (2012) so staff and clients can communicate to the nurses station while in the clients’ room.
