The ABI Day Program offers outpatient therapy groups for people who have an acquired brain injury. The program is for people who want to learn more about their injury, take part in meaningful activities, explore their strengths, and learn skills and strategies to manage symptoms.
People who may benefit from attending the program includes those with an acquired brain injury who:
- Need education about acquired brain injury and related symptoms and could benefit from support from peers going through similar experience
- Have cognitive (thinking) difficulties such as trouble with memory, paying attention, being organized, initiating or following through with tasks, or problem solving.
- Have trouble managing fatigue related to their ABI.
- Have emotional/behavior challenges related to their ABI (anger/irritability, mood swings, stress/anxiety)
- Have social and life skill challenges related to their ABI (social isolation, decreased interest/opportunity for leisure, lacking daily structure)
