Stories of Inspiration
A workplace accident
A workplace accident left their son with a catastrophic brain injury, NRIO helped rehabilitate him so he could go home
Our son, JC, suffered a catastrophic brain injury as a result of a workplace accident. It was the beginning of a traumatic and difficult journey for him and ourselves, as parents. In his early thirties, it was shocking and so stressful to cope with the situation our son was in. Luckily, NRIO was recommended to us for follow up. We spoke to Colleen, the director, who was not only supportive & easy to talk to, but experienced and knowledgeable about the path ahead for JC. She clearly described NRIO’s approach and predicted prognosis after a stay at NRIO … accurately as in turns out. Read More
An inspiration to many
Cameron O’Hanley – an inspiration to many
Cameron O’Hanley, a promising soccer star and high school student living in Prince Edward Island (PEI), suffered serious injuries after a car accident. He came to the Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute of Ontario (NRIO) in Toronto, a division of Bayshore Therapy & Rehab for a multi-disciplinary, intensive, 6 month brain injury programme including attending school. He is an inspiration to those who have gone through a difficult recovery period. See more.
A motor vehicle accident
A terrible motor vehicle accident leads to help to recovery from NRIO
Our son was involved in a catastrophic MVA in Alberta when he was 24 years old. Diagnosed with TBI and associated quadriplegia he remained comatose for an extended period of time. After repatriation to Ontario he was admitted to NRIO Mississauga and upon his arrival he was clinically “vegetative.” Today, four years later, due entirely to the dedication, care and compassion of his entire NRIO team, SM has progressed to a “conscious” state and continues to improve at a cognitive level.

My wife, RL suffered a stroke 5 years ago while travelling in Europe. Initially, the German doctors told me, “Your wife does not have a 5% chance to live another two days.” For 4 years I struggled to give her a higher level of medical care that she deserved. This all changed when our family physician recommended that my wife should go to NRIO for an assessment. In December 2016 my wife started treatment at NRIO. My family, friends and I have seen such phenomenal progress in RL. She has progressed more in 8 months at NRIO, than in the previous 4 years. I am grateful to Colleen Boyce and the entire team at NRIO for their incredible care of my wife. I highly recommend NRIO to anyone considering neurological rehabilitation for their loved one.
