In 2000 Client A had a brain aneurysm. She was working as a data entry clerk, a job she was not able to return to due to her injury. Since hearing about the day program at the Brain Injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington, Maureen has been helping out with lunch, participating in the glass program, and attending what she calls the ‘math club’ (poker games). Client A feels the program gives her a sense of normalcy, community, friendship, and a purpose in life in a non-judgmental atmosphere. If the program didn’t exist she believes her life would be depressing and solitary. When asked what she would recommend to new survivors of a brain injury she replied “Find something to do; get joy out of it and give into it.”
B.I.A.W.W. values accountability and we recognize that monitoring and evaluation are essential components to our programming and we are committed to being responsible to our service users, community partners, funders, donors and the pubic for the use of our resources.
