Since 1988, we've been serving the Cochrane-Timiskaming area, with assistance and resources for those with both epilepsy and acquired brain injuries. We offer a number of programs including New Beginnings (a day program offered to those with epilepsy or ABI, that assists with learning how to use computers, cooking, a walking program and much more), Peer Mentoring (for those who choose not to participate in the day program but would still like someone to be there if they need some advice or guidance), and plenty more.
We have also begun to work with Dr. Blume, a neurologist who comes to Timmins from the London University Hospital to look after clients that cannot necessarily make the trip or those who'd just like to ask him questions. In order to make an appointment with Dr. Blume, you must ask your physician for a referral.
We're here to ensure that epilepsy or an acquired brain injury is not the deciding factor in ones life.
