Over 20,000 Canadians are hospitalized each year with an acquired traumatic brain injury (as per the Government of Canada), so there is a huge need for education around the prevention and impact of traumatic brain injuries.
May is Caregiver Awareness Month in Alberta! One in four Albertans is a caregiver for a family member, friend, or someone else in their community. CABIS recognizes the need for education and awareness, so we provide caregiver support + workshops to manage stress and balance relationships.

Our staff and volunteers offer Understanding, Empathy, Compassion and support for persons with brain injury, their families and caregivers.
CABIS was created in 1991 by concerned family members who were caring for children and adults who suffered a Brain Injury. At the time there were no services for individuals who were living with a brain injury in Central Alberta.
We provide support for individuals living with brain injury, their families and caregivers, while raising awareness within the community
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals to support our survivors, caregivers and school programs
