Life Redesign After Brain Injury and Stroke

CONNECT’s mission is to Make Lives Better. We do this by providing complex and specialized services for people living with brain injury and stroke in a nurturing and innovative community environment. Our Life Redesign Model™, which was deemed Leading Practice by Accreditation Canada, is what defines our approach to rehab, our services and supports. The Life Redesign Model™ is an innovative functional approach which allows individuals to participate in rehab which is embedded in real-life activities. Through our Life Redesign Model, we empower people by applying our knowledge and experience to coach, challenge and motivate each person to reach their unique personal goals and build a fulfilling life for themselves. CONNECT’s Life Redesign Model is characterized by;

  • A culture of personal accountability, supported risk taking, social capital and meaningful community participation;
  • Service plans leverage neuroplasticity by pursuing individual goals in real-life, non-institutional settings;
  • A “doing-with” coaching approach with blended job roles and a multi-professional coaching team;

Our coaching resource team is made up of professional coaches, resource coaches and Life Redesign Coaches. CONNECT has a whole team of rehab professionals, but we named them specifically to put an emphasis on the coaching aspects of their jobs. For example, our Occupational Therapist is called an Independence Coach.  CONNECT’s Life Redesign Coaches work with the individuals we support in our homes. They coach individuals to work on achieving the goals outlined in their Life Redesign Plans and support them with community involvement, interdependence and maintaining and developing social capital in their lives.
