Searching for services to support recovery from a brain injury can be overwhelming. We’ve created an online list of resources to help people recovering from brain injury access the supports they need. You can find this list of 300+ services (we call it a “Repository” for short) by clicking on the Resources menu item. You can search for information on a wide variety of helpful services ranging from support groups to rehab services, to housing options and financial assistance. We have also included services that help individuals return to life, such as social, leisure, sport, exercise and work related activities. But this is just a snapshot of the listed services….there is much, much more!
How to navigate through brain injury resources
You can navigate this list a number of ways. You can click on each of the categories to see the services they include. You can enter a keyword. You can enter the specific name of a service to search for it. Or – one of the most popular ways you can find services close to you – is to enter your postal code.
How to find a brain injury organization in your area
Another good first step is to click on the category “Brain Injury Organizations” to find one in your local area. They are very familiar with services in your community and are excellent sources of support and advice.
With input from partners, service providers, brain injury survivors and family members like you, we have added even more services to the list in the past month. Now you can:
- Explore some of the clinics across the province that offer concussion management services
- Find a longer list of stroke services, programs and rapid access clinics available to BC residents
- Review the types of ABI services offered by Providence Health Care
Please share the Resources page with all those in your professional, client, family and friend networks! We want to spread the word about the wide range of services available to support individuals with brain injury. Our goal is to support brain injury survivors as they strive to improve their health and well-being, make and keep relationships, and build skills and confidence as they return to their community and reinvent their life.
And please do contact us if you would like to suggest that a service be considered for inclusion in the Repository – We are keen to keep adding to this growing list!
