You don’t have to recover from brain injury alone. The Neuron™ home care program offers tele-health nursing visits to Alberta residents as well as direct home care to patients living in Edmonton, Alberta. After stroke or brain injury, Neuron™ provides expert care to help patients recover at home. We know it’s critical to get the right care at the right time after sustaining a brain injury. Rehabilitation therapies are most effective in the first six months after a stroke or brain injury, but they can also help later in the healing process. Our home care service connects patients to expert health professionals providing post-stroke care and brain injury treatment in Alberta.

Mood, self-esteem and brain function can be improved by reducing other symptoms of brain injury.

After a brain injury, the Neuron™ home care program provides symptom-based care to help restore independence and self-confidence. It’s hard to feel confident when moderate-to-severe symptoms interfere with daily life. The various symptoms of brain injury can be daunting, ranging from migraines to speech impairments. And, when symptoms aren’t under control, even the most motivated patients may put off seeking care. That is why we look to improve the symptoms of brain injury before starting other therapies that support brain injury recovery.

One of the most crucial predictors of brain health is a person’s quality of life. Unfortunately, the successful treatment of neurological symptoms requires advanced training and experience. This is what sets our home care services apart. All Neuron™ home care staff use a ‘capacity coaching’ approach during care. Capacity coaching is an innovative method to help home care patients recover faster after a stroke or brain injury. This approach works by assisting our patients with the difficult work of controlling daily symptoms.

Symptom-based care can reduce stress, improve overall health and promote a return to daily life.

The Neuron™ home care program tracks changes in daily symptoms, sleep habits, nutrition and physical activity. We also provide on-demand counselling and psychosocial rehabilitation if life gets out of hand. Fatigue and headaches are two of the most common symptoms we manage. However, there are many other symptoms of stroke or brain injury. These symptoms can build up over time, eventually disrupting daily life. That’s why, as part of our stroke and brain injury recovery program, we keep a close eye on symptoms.

Brain symptoms can be complicated, requiring an understanding of the disease’s underlying neurobiological causes. Our home care program was created to help patients cope with neurological symptoms while living at home. We are available most evenings and weekends, and take pride in delivering outstanding care after hours. Anxiety, insomnia and vertigo are common nocturnal symptoms of brain injury. Symptom distress is, therefore, likely to occur overnight after brain injury or stroke. Unmanaged symptom distress may then prolong recovery after stroke or brain injury. In the scientific literature, good symptom control is related to improved outcomes.

It’s time to make your comeback after stroke or brain injury.

As a stand-alone home care program, Neuron™ is built around your patient’s financial resources. We typically seek direct coverage for home care services via provincial and private health insurance plans.

In this way, our home care services can help reduce health-system utilization and improve recovery after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and stroke.

Evidence-based therapies form an important part of our care. We frequently address health-system gaps and improve access to brain injury rehabilitation services in Edmonton. In addition to effective health supports, this specialized program provides cognitive, functional and psychosocial rehabilitation to complement a patient’s existing treatment for stroke or brain injury.
