Last June the Champlain region’s Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) System Navigator was recognized for her work by the Ontario Association of Community Care Access Centres. In her role, Suzanne McKenna guides ABI survivors and caregivers who are unsure about where to start looking for care during this difficult time in their lives.
Since McKenna began her work in October of 2011, she has helped to connect more than 120 individuals in need of specialized services and supports.
“A brain injury doesn’t just change the life of the individual; it changes the lives of everyone around them. Creating a better life for those who suffer a brain injury, along with their families and caregivers, is my ultimate goal,” says McKenna.
ABI Resources for Primary Care
An ABI Primary Health Care Resource Guide is available to be used as a quick reference tool for ABI support services available in the Champlain region (e.g. day programs, transportation, continuing education, support groups, recreational opportunities).
