Stories of Inspiration
A workplace accident
A workplace accident left their son with a catastrophic brain injury, Bayshore 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, Residential Rehab was recommended to us for follow up. We spoke to Colleen, the Director, who was not only supportive and easy to talk to, but experienced and knowledgeable about the path ahead for JC. She clearly described the approach they would take and predicted prognosis after a stay in the residential program … accurately as in turns out. Read More

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 Residential Rehab program 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 the Mississauga residence, and upon his arrival he was clinically “vegetative.” Today, four years later, due entirely to the dedication, care and compassion of his entire Residential Rehab team, SM has progressed to a “conscious” state and continues to improve at a cognitive level.

My husband AH suffered from traumatic brain injury in 2004 after being hit by a car. When his case settled with the insurance company in 2008, we were looking for a place where he could do long term physiotherapy. Our doctor gave us a few names, but we chose NRIO as it is relatively close to home. We are however very happy with our choice, as we found the staff at NRIO very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. When AH arrived at NRIO, he could hardly sit straight in his wheelchair. After working with a very personable physiotherapist, he is able to walk with a cane. We are very grateful to have found NRIO.
