A community where members work together towards a common goal of community re-integration.
The ABI Ireland Day Resource Service is first and foremost a community. It is an all rounded model of service which helps you enhance your self-esteem, independence, community involvement and personal growth after a brain injury. The day rehabilitation service provides a range of cognitive, social, educational, creative and rehabilitative activities in a supportive environment. The Day Resource Centre is a place where you can be accepted for who you are and work together with other members towards the common goal of re-integrating into the community.
Day resource services are like a club house model, a place where you can meet others who have also suffered and ABI and work together every day in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere.
Members choose the activities they want to get involved in from a choice of programmes designed to help aid your rehabilitation recovery.
Programmes are changed and varied from time to time, with some of the these including: cooking, gardening, art, yoga, music, computers, creative writing, cognitive skills, drama, photography, social skills, self-advocacy, geographic exploration, arts and crafts, history and art appreciation. You will also be involved in the running of the everyday tasks of the resource centre to ensure to remains a welcome and supportive atmosphere.
The Day resource centre is about encouraging you to form new relationships and find new interests while building on your strengths and capabilities.
