A.B.L.E. (Adults with Brain injury Living Everyday)
This is a support group which is organized and run by Marina White, President of the Newfoundland and Labrador Brain Injury Association Board. The group meets every Wednesday for activities such as bowling, cards, bingo or movies.
A.B.L.E. often pairs with other Community Partners such as Eastern Health to promote healthy living. The group has been visited by experts in exercise and nutrition and participants learned how to shop for and make healthy and delicious food. A survivor summer camp is being considered in the near future.
