Group Name: Community Head Injury Resource Services – Adult Social Club
Description: CHIRS (Community Head Injury Resource Services) is a registered not-for-profit charitable organization primarily funded by the Central Local Health Integration Network and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. CHIRS has earned its fourth three-year accreditation award from Accreditation Canada. To earn this award, the agency is assessed against national acquired brain injury (ABI) service standards set by Accreditation Canada in collaboration with the health care community and related stakeholders. CHIRS, formerly known as Ashby House, started in 1978 as the first community-based brain injury rehabilitation program in North America. From its origins as a transitional group home, CHIRS has evolved into a multi-service agency that provides a broad range of supports to a clientele with diverse and complex needs.
One of the most common issues an individual may face after sustaining a brain injury is difficulty reconnecting socially with others. CHIRS offers three social groups that provide participants with opportunities to meet others in a safe and supportive setting. CHIRS offers afternoon and evening social clubs. Members are involved in planning and researching activities for the season.
When: All Adult Day Service programs require registration. Please contact the CHIRS Intake Department to register. Participants accessing Adult Day Service programs need to be independent for all transportation and personal support requirements, as one to one assistance is not available. Participants who require additional support are welcome to bring a family member or attendant. Please note that programs may be added or changed in response to participant feedback.
