History and Mandate
Brain Care Centre is a non-profit organization stemming from the merger of NABIS (Northern Alberta Brain Injury Society) and EBIRS (Edmonton Brain Injury Relearning Society). Brain Care Centre offers programs and services at no cost to adults who have sustained an acquired brain injury, and their families. Services are offered from offices in Edmonton and Edson. Through service coordination, counselling, occupational therapy, electronic device training, and volunteer programs Brain Care Centre strives to empower others to Defy Limitations!
As the leader for excellence in brain care, we Defy Limitations!
Brain Care Centre exists to give those impacted by acquired brain injury the supports they need to overcome limitations, reconnect, rebuild, and thrive in the community.
In its work with clients, families, caregivers, staff and the greater community, Brain Care Centre commits to the following core values:
Compassionate | We understand that those we serve are the experts of their own experiences and we deeply respect their individual journeys.
Collaborative | We work as a team to solve problems and invite partners and agencies to work alongside us.
Professional | We strive to ensure anyone who interacts with BCC has a high-quality experience and that we operate with integrity and transparency.
Innovative | We are attuned to the needs of those we serve and our programs evolve to reflect the current trends in our sector.
