Brain Injury Association Peterborough Region (BIAPR) is a registered, not-for-profit charitable organization, primarily funded by the Ministry of Health through the Central East Local Health Integrated Care (CE LHIN). We serve the Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton and Northumberland communities by providing non-medical resources and supports.
BIAPR community support services are led by a community support team that begins with a Case manager/Intake coordinator’s assessment of the client’s needs.
Our Community Support Services assist with:
- planning for living arrangements
- providing support for independent living
- referring to other community services
- connecting with ABI Day Services
A Client Service coordinator (CSC) and a Community Support worker (CSW) make up the outreach team. Services are provided to support individuals who have the capability of living independently, or who are being supported by family in the community.
Once you have been assessed and registered in Day Services, you will have the opportunity to try various programs and services according to your needs. Our ABI Day Services deliver a specialized program, designed with you, according to your specific needs and capabilities
Our Services are designed to form the basis of a comprehensive model of community support and service delivery. All clients have opportunities to try out programs and services to determine ways in which specific services could work for them. ABI Day Services deliver a specialized program, designed in conjunction with the client, according to specific needs.
As BIAPR looks to the future, we remain fully committed to increasing awareness of brain injury, and to serving those in our communities who are directly and indirectly affected.
We recognize that:
- the impact of brain injury can be devastating not only to individuals with ABI, but to the family members, caregivers, friends and communities.
- the impact of ABI can affect every aspect of life, often resulting in isolation and the loss of livelihood.
- ABI can cause many physical, emotional and behavioural changes.
