Transitional Living - Kitchener - for people with an acquired brain injury
Traverse Independence
Category: Transitional Living Home
Target Population: Acquired Brain Injury
Service Details

A significant injury challenges your ability to reclaim your independence. Whether you are coming from the hospital or from living with caregivers, the first step is a 12-week assessment in a fully furnished apartment. It includes heat and hydro, cable, local phone and internet and is equipped with basic kitchen wares and everything you need, except your clothes, toiletries and personal items. We provide a weekly allowance to buy your groceries items, cleaning supplies and other items. Public transportation passes are included if needed.
Once an independent living skills assessment has been done, you and your team will establish which skills you need in order to accomplish your personal goals. The plan is designed to take you to independence in the community with the appropriate supports.
