About ARBI

Making life better for survivors of severe brain injury, including stroke.

Brain injury, including stroke can have a devastating impact on survivors and their families. The ARBI approach blends science and compassion to create hope for survivors.

Survivors are your family and friends…members of your community.

ARBI provides intensive community-based rehabilitation and family support in a nurturing environment. With personalized rehabilitation, and lots of encouragement, survivors can once again enjoy fulfilling lives in their communities. Building on strengths, families can pave the way for the future with confidence and optimism.

Dedicated to Making Life Better, our team helps clients achieve meaningful goals so they can attain their best possible quality of life.

We see meaningful relationships develop, independence regained and life after brain injury lived with passion and purpose.

Thousands of individuals from across Alberta have benefited from ARBI’s expertise.

ARBI is the only non-profit community agency that provides longer-term rehabilitation and family support for survivors of severe acquired brain injury, caused by:

  • Traumatic injuries (related to falls, car crashes, sporting injuries, etc.)
  • Non-traumatic injuries (caused by stroke, infection, and lack of oxygen)

For over thirty years we have dedicated ourselves to enriching the lives of survivors and their families.

We believe that every client and every family deserves to have hope for the future. Our expertise and experience has shown us that survivors can regain lost abilities, increase independence and reconnect with their communities. With appropriate rehabilitation, significant improvements can happen years following an injury.

ARBI helps individuals achieve their dreams of re-engaging in the community, and living fulfilling lives. Together, we help families rebuild a life after brain injury.
