What We Do

​We offer a full range of inpatient therapies to patients who have a significant injury to the brain du​e to trauma or illness. We provide intensive treatment during your hospital stay, which may be as short as 3 weeks or may be longer, depending on your health care team's assessment.

As part of our care, we will work with you and your loved ones to plan your discharge to help you make a safe and successful transition to the next stage of your rehabilitation at home or in your community.

Neuro Cognitive Service

We provide rehabilitative care to patients whose primary needs relate to thinking and behavioural skills. Typical goals of our patients might include:

  •  About Brain Injuries

    ​Each year, 50,000 Canadians experience a brain injury (often called an acquired brain injury or ABI). The injury may be the result of a ​​car accident or a fall, or it may be caused by a medical problem, such as a stroke, brain aneurysm or cardiac arrest.

    A brain injury can change people's lives dramatically – and the lives of their families and friends. A brain injury may affe​ct how a person moves, thinks, talks, feels and behaves, and can cause a loss of memory.

     Individualized Care

    ​A brain injury will affect each person differently. Our interprofessional health care team works with you and your family to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs and goals. ​
