The centrality of the individual, understood as the subject of its own recovery and/or protection process, and the humanization of taking charge are essential elements for obtaining the proposed qualitative result. Respect for the person, whatever the physical state, psychic or sensory and whatever the margins of reversibility of its pathological status, combined with the professionalism of the operators and compliance with current legislation for taking charge, care and protection of "weak" subjects are the cornerstones on which to base the socio-medical process aimed at maintaining the level of self-sufficiency achieved and at the prevention of complications.
