The Community Support Program offers outreach services provided to support individuals who are affected by brain injury and who have the capability of living independently, or who are being supported by family / others in the community.
- After undergoing a comprehensive ABI Intake & Placement process, individuals with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) are paired with a dedicated Client Service Coordinator (CSC) who will assist them in setting priorities and developing an individualized service delivery plan. The plan will be regularly reassessed and adjusted as necessary.
The CSC will also offer supports in areas such as:
- Developing skills in planning, organizing, and completing important paperwork
- Assistance with accessing coordinated care and income support services like ODSP, CPP, CPP-D and OW
- Support in accessing healthcare services and following up with primary care practitioners and other healthcare providers
- Referring, linking and staying connected to community resources for further support
- Supporting food security for individuals in need through connection to local food banks
