Vista Centre Brain Injury Services
Vista Centre Brain Injury Services (VCBIS) is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors whose role is to plan and determine policy and be accountable to the community it serves, so that the stated purpose, goals and objectives of the organization can be attained.
Due to the life altering effects of a brain injury, VCBIS has made a commitment to ensuring that the delivery of services is based primarily upon the unique and individual needs of each person. Long term support programs are often necessary and are provided as long as there is potential for goal achievement.
We work collaboratively with persons whose lives have been affected by Acquired Brain Injury through community-based support, service, and education toward maximizing their life potential.
To provide the highest quality services in the field of Acquired Brain Injury.
People First: VCBIS values a mutually beneficial partnership with clients and family members in the planning, development and assessment of supports and services to ensure that they are the most appropriate for their needs. This involves putting clients and family members at the centre of all decisions and ensuring that they are fully informed
Dignity: VCBIS values dignity in care, which means the kind of care that supports and promotes and does not undermine a person’s self-esteem.
