In addition to the GF Strong ABI Program Outreach Team we pointed out earlier, the Vancouver Coastal Health “Vancouver Community Rehabilitation and Resource Team” is another resource for those living here in the Vancouver area. The team provides short, 6 month rehab programs for those living with complex disabilities. They provide assessment and treatment for individuals who want to improve their ability to function and have specific goals they would like to achieve. Rehab sessions may be in your home or in a nearby community location. The teams goals are to increase independence, community participation, and life satisfaction.
To qualify for this rehab program, you must reside in Vancouver, be between 19-64 years old, be eligible for Community Health Services and be living with a complex disability. The program is targeted at those who do not have third party insurance or working with Community Living BC.
