Bringing Innovation To Brain Injury Rehabilitation

The Prince George Brain Injured Group (PG BIG) is a charitable non-profit organization with the mission of providing education, prevention and community rehabilitation to enhance the lives of persons living with the effects of acquired brain injury (ABI), and their families, in and around Prince George, British Columbia.

Brain injury can be devastating to the injured, their families, and to communities. Beyond the individuals’ changes and challenges, there can often be confusion, misunderstandings, doubts and huge changes in relationships. Without help, those living with an acquired brain injury and their families are likely to face a lifetime of frustration, hardship and isolation.

A Place of Belonging

PG BIG provides a place where survivors and family can come and feel at home.

PG BIG A Place Of BelongingWhether coming in for an appointment, to attend a class, or to ask for help, everyone is warmly welcomed. Here is what survivors have to say about The Prince George Brain Injured Group Office:

  • “It’s a place where I can just be myself.”
  • “I don’t have to pretend I’m the person I was before.”
  • “I feel accepted by everyone.”
  • “It doesn’t matter if I forget people’s names or make mistakes. Everyone else does too.”
  • “I can’t tell the survivors from the staff. Everyone is equal.”
  • “We are all like one big family”

Chilling at PG BIGA sense of belonging is extremely important to us all, and it becomes even more so after a life-changing injury. Therefore, the staff at PG BIG work tirelessly to provide a safe, welcoming and nurturing space that welcomes everyone, and belongs to those with a brain injury. Some of the many services offered include:

  • A friendly, open, and very informal environment.
  • Comfy couches, chairs, and corners where one can sit and visit with others, or just relax.
  • Using ComputersCoffee that is always on, and often there are also shared treats to eat.
  • Equipment available for personal use:
    • Computers and telephone use.
    • Photocopying and faxing.
    • Big screen TV with a DVD player.
    • Radio with a cd/tape player.
