Neuron™ provides virtual counselling & home-based therapy to Alberta residents with acquired brain injuries and neurocognitive disorders.
In this combined tele-health and home care program, a Mental Health Therapist cross-trained as a Registered Nurse (RN) works through difficult situations with you. We are Edmonton-based professionals dedicated to improving your overall mental and physical health.
Our Edmonton-based home care team has completed added training in psychological counselling, health coaching and primary care behavioural health. They stand ready to enhance your psychological well-being at home.
Call us at (780) 851-9717, or
Virtual care uses secure videoconferencing and electronic communications (e.g. secure e-mail) as an alternative to an in-person visit with your health care provider.
We may talk about how you are feeling, review your treatment plan and care options, or share health information and education. During the virtual care appointment, we will also clarify what services are available and which cannot be provided using electronic means for your particular health concern.

If you are experiencing distress or a medical emergency, please immediately call 9 1 1, Edmonton’s 24/7 Mental Health Distress Line or go to your nearest Emergency Room.
This home care stream was designed to support people living at home with:
- Traumatic brain injury including post-concussive syndrome
- Mild cognitive impairment resulting in reduced working memory, attention deficits or reduced ability to speak
- Major neurocognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s Dementia
Prior to admission to this specific stream of home care, a phone and/or video call with a Registered Nurse is required. There is no cost for this call. During this call, the nurse will review your brain health concerns, answer questions about this program and discuss other options for community care.
What is Neuron™?
|Designed to build upon your strengths.|
|Focused on your goals.|
|Focused on your environment.|
|Dedicated to improving your psychological well-being.|
The Neuron™ program was founded on the premise that past experiences shape what is possible for your mental health. For example, your life can inspire hope or it can trigger hopelessness. The environment in which we live can also sustain or deplete us. The human brain is highly diverse. As a result, each person we meet has unique strengths and weaknesses. From this, we either seek connection or disconnection in specific settings. These lived realities both enable and limit future possibilities for health change, shaping our future experience of mental health. With an expert guide on your side, you are supported in re-formatting life’s patterns to uncover new possibilities for health.
This home care stream provides a psychologically-enhanced home care service, including:
- Mindfulness-based approaches
- Adaptive nutrition
- Exercise prescription
- Mental health counselling
- Health coaching
- Functional rehabilitation
What Neuron™ is not
