Community Brain Injury Program

An individualized, community-based rehabilitation program is developed based on a comprehensive assessment.

Components of the Brain Injury Program:

The program includes any or all of the following components:

Case Coordination Services:

  • The Occupational Therapist liaises with all other involved health professionals to ensure a collaborative and cost effective approach is utilized.  Relates pertinent information to the case manager; and consults with the family physician.

Life Skills Training:

  • Increasing independence in daily living (home management tasks, meal preparation, and transportation) through compensatory strategies.

Cognitive Screening & Remediation:

  • Providing strategies to compensate for cognitive deficits and exercises to improve areas where limitations have been identified.

Physical Conditioning Programs:

  • Improving general tolerances, physical status, balance, increasing productivity, structure in daily routine, and self-esteem.

Vocational Programs: 

  • Developing work readiness skills and exploring vocational interests through volunteer or work placements.

Community Integration:

  • Assisting the individual in accessing social, recreational and leisure programs.

Benefits of the Brain Injury Program:

The goal is to assist the client to optimize his or her functional ability, promote independence, facilitate community integration, and return to work or productive activities. One-to-one training may be provided by a Rehabilitation Assistant or by a Job Coach.
