What We Do

Empowering those affected by acquired brain injuries to Defy Limitations!

Brain Care Centre is a non-profit organization operating out of Edmonton and Edson, Alberta. It provides programs and services to adults who have sustained acquired brain injuries, and their support systems. If you have sustained an acquired brain injury, we are here to help you work toward goals and rediscover your identity.

What is an acquired brain injury?

According to the World Health Organization, an acquired brain injury is damage to the brain that happens after birth, and isn’t linked to a degenerative disease (2007). There are two different kinds of brain injuries (traumatic and non-traumatic), which can happen in various ways, from car accidents, falls, and sports injuries, to violent crimes.

The brain is an extremely complex organ, and every brain injury is different. This means that each person who sustains a brain injury has a different experience, with different symptoms and varying levels of severity. Acquired brain injuries can change how a person functions physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially. Sustaining a brain injury can affect anything from difficulty swallowing and keeping balance, to issues with memory and problem solving.

Anyone can acquire a brain injury at any time. No one can ever be fully prepared to cope with suddenly living with a brain injury, or unexpectedly becoming a caregiver. At Brain Care Centre, we understand the many challenges you face, and we’re here to help however we can.
