Support Across the Whole Family
A traumatic brain injury (TBI), or stroke, impacts more than the survivor. It impacts the entire family. Often families experience a wide range of responses after a stroke or TBI because their lives have been forever changed. There is a significant need for longer-term support as clients and their families reconnect into their lives and their communities.
ARBI’s neuropsychologist works with our clients, caregivers, and staff to address the cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioural consequences of brain injury or stroke. Our neuropsychologist assesses the client’s abilities to process information and respond in an appropriate manner. Additionally, the individual’s emotional and social wellbeing are evaluated, and they are provided with recommendations to help them successfully reintegrate into the community.
ARBI’s social worker provides constant support and is involved with our clients and their caregivers from the intake process through to their discharge. This creates a safe and collaborative environment for clients and their families to share, learn, grow and find hope as they overcome the many challenges that lie ahead. Our dedicated social worker:
- Provides supportive counseling to clients and caregivers
- Connects clients and caregivers to resources in the community
- Strengthens partnerships within the brain injury community support network
- Collaborates on client treatment plans, discharge planning, and general well-being
Every client and every family deserves to have hope for the future.
We believe that each client and family that comes through ARBI’s doors have their own unique sources of strength and healing potential. With support, our hope is to help them understand that there can be life after a traumatic brain injury.
