The Acquired Brain Injury Program supports people over the age of 15 who have a brain injury that is impairing their independence and ability to function in the community.
Participants in the program enjoy goal-based activities that include arts, woodworking, gardening, music therapy, cooking, and educational games. The group takes a hands-on approach to activities of daily living including meal planning, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and clean up. Participants benefit from companionship, peer support, assistance with personal goals, and community interaction.
There are beautiful gardens for participants to visit throughout the day. Those interested in gardening have the opportunity to get involved in its design, development, and maintenance.
Staff also assist participants and their families to cope with the stress and challenges they encounter in their home, educational, recreational, and work lives as they adjust to their changed circumstances.
The program can accommodate up to 15 people. Participants are required to be medically stable. The program is not staffed to support high complex needs where 1:1 support, or 2-person support is required, or where behavior risks are too high for a group setting. Participants must meet program capacity in level of supervision/ support required in eating, mobility, washroom use, and peri care needs. Participants must present to be capable of safely and successfully benefiting from the social recreational goals of the day program.
Cost: $5 per day
