Searching for services to support recovery from a brain injury can be overwhelming. We created an online list of resources to help people recovering from brain injury access the supports they need. You can find this list of services (we call it a “Repository” for short) by clicking on the Resources menu item above.
Watch our tutorial to learn how to navigate through our list of brain injury recovery resources
And now…we’ve created a short tutorial video that shows you some of the ways you can search the 300+ services we have listed.
Watch the video to learn how to:
- Find a Brain Injury Organization in your local area. This is a good first step, as they are very familiar with services in your community and are excellent sources of support and advice.
- Search the list by category, keyword or by entering the specific name of a service.
- Use a postal code to find services within a 30 km radius (this is one of the most popular ways you can find services close to you).
- Search for all the services available to you in your health authority. Not only will you find services available in your region, but you will also find provincial and national services that you might find helpful.
Spread the word about the wide range of services available
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!
Please share this link 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 skill and confidence as they return to their community and reinvent their life.
