Please join us for pictures on Wednesday, June 18th at 12:30PM! We want to get some great shots of our staff, volunteers and members, to freshen up our website, social media pages and our brochures.

  • Try to wear plain clothes and solid colours. Avoid logos or advertising on shirts, it distracts the photos.
  • If it rains we will find a spot undercover
  • You are welcome to bring your ‘support system’ for the photo shoot, e.g. family, friends
  • You will be asked to sign a Photo Release Form

See you on the 18th!

We are so grateful to Harbourside Rotary for renewing funding for our Music Program. This program has become one of our most popular, to the point where we can barely fit all of the participants in one room!

The Music Program has numerous benefits for brain injury survivors. In terms of physical rehabilitation, using rhythm, pitch, vision and hearing enables clients’ brains to sing words that they aren’t able to speak. Music therapy also has the unique opportunity to focus on the client as a whole person with many abilities and strengths. This program provides clients with positive, successful...

We would like to thank Island Savings Credit Union for continuing to fund our Families First Program.

Families First provides family members with a comprehensive opportunity to become further educated about the issues they and their loved ones will be facing as a result of a member of the family experiencing a brain injury. The program supports family members as they learn about rehabilitation, legal issues, financial issues, services and resources available and the long-term implications of the injury.

The overarching goal of our society is to lend a supportive and helping hand to those...

The Northeast Center for Special Care has released a document that outlines some of the benefits of music therapy session for those who have suffered from a traumatic brain injury.
