Our NeuroRecovery Centre in Kelowna offers committed and personalized support for brain injury and concussion recovery with a program powered by ABI Wellness. Our evidence-based model has shown a high success rate in restoring quality of life for our clients with acquired brain injury and persistent concussion. The program is offered in-person and virtually.
The main focus of our program is cognitive rehabilitation with the goal of stimulating neuroplasticity in clients with acquired brain injury and persistent concussion. This means rebuilding cognitive capacities such as energy management, problem solving, organization, goal setting, working memory, and time management. We use computer-integrated tracking to monitor progress and make real-time adjustments to meet individual needs.
Aerobic exercise releases chemicals in the brain that enhance cognitive function, especially memory and concentration.
Counselling helps manage anxiety, depression, and feelings of being overwhelmed. This brings clear thinking and more balance in life.
Mindfulness reduces stress and fatigue in patients with brain injury. It can also help improve attention, concentration, and mood.
