For more than 40 years, our vision has been to give each of our clients the chance to live their best life possible. We do this through our primary programs and services:

ON-SITE PROGRAM provides intensive neurorehabilitation therapy delivered by our multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals.

OUTREACH PROGRAM offers one-to-one assessment and treatment tailored for clients requiring intervention from only one discipline.

COMMUNITY INTEGRATION PROGRAM (CIP) offers group and one-to-one opportunities for engagement in meaningful community-based recreational pursuits.

CAREGIVER SUPPORT is provided to clients and their caregivers as they adjust to life after brain injury and reconnect with the community.

Why Support ARBI?

  • Over 5,000 Albertans sustain a brain injury every year.
  • One in 10 people will know someone who will suffer a brain injury this year alone.
  • Every year, over 6,000 Canadians become permanently disabled after a traumatic brain injury.
  • 60% of people who have a stroke report that they need help afterwards.
