Welcome To TideWay on Galveston Island


The Transitional Learning Center (TLC) recognized years ago the growing need for long-term supported living for survivors of brain injury.  As a result, TideWay was born.  This 32 bed facility offers nearly 40 thousand square feet of living and activity space and sits on 3.5 acres of prime real estate one block from the beach in the heart of Galveston Island.

In designing the facility, TLC drew upon it’s nearly 30 years experience as a PIONEER in the field of brain injury rehabilitation to create a program in which we would feel comfortable having our loved ones reside.  In doing so, we created an environment that replicates a normal home lifestyle for our patients with acquired or traumatic brain injury.  There is no dormitory feel. 

In keeping with TLC’s mission of providing a truly community integrated program, we built a facility and developed a program that does not isolate our residents from the community; a program aimed at reducing medical recidivism and increasing functional skills while at the same time addresses the wishes of families who want their loved ones to be involved in the community as often as possible.  TideWay is only minutes away from TLC, a major medical center in the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and a myriad of other community activities.  Its central location provides our residents direct access to the community and the resources it has to offer every single day.
