Our Mission

To successfully transform the lives of individuals with acquired brain injuries, helping them to live fulfilling and rewarding lives.

Navigating the health care system and getting meaningful support after an acquired brain injury is difficult for individuals and their families. We understand. Loved ones should never have to feel alone. That’s why TABIRS exists. We’re on your side providing continuous assistance. Ultimately, we are here for you. We believe you can have a fulfilling life after ABI with the right support in place.

Established in 2005, Toronto ABI Rehab Specialists Limited (TABIRS) has been making a huge impact in people’s lives. Improving quality of life and providing safety, comfort and purpose, we can give families the reassurance they need when life gets tough.

Working solely in collaboration with Community Head Injury Resource Services of Toronto (CHIRS), we provide a broad range of life-changing services to the ABI community on a fee-for-service basis. CHIRS is a registered not-for-profit charitable organization primarily funded by the Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

With TABIRS, individuals living with the effects of ABI are always in good hands. Compassion, dignity and care underpin everything we do. TABIRS benefits from the expertise and oversight of two professional neuropsychologists working with the most complicated and catastrophic brain injury cases in Ontario.

A gift to the CHIRS Foundation is a wonderful way to pay tribute or make a difference to those living with ABI and their families. Your donations help with undertaking more ABI research, consistently improving care facilities, and employing even more influential members of staff.

For The People, For The Community

Doing good twice is what we do. Your investment won’t simply rehabilitate the individual who sustained the ABI, but helps to continuously support fellow individuals one treatment at a time.

TABIRS operates for the people. This is the way it’s always been. That’s why funds generated for our services are continuously reinvested back to the CHIRS Foundation. This powerful vehicle exists to support community programs benefitting those with ABI. Working collaboratively in this way, we provide continuous support to those affected, because nobody should ever feel abandoned.

Every life matters. Transform one with TABIRS.

ABI is a subject requiring expert attention. Ultimately we want 
everything to be ok. That’s why TABIRS provides life-changing
support, whatever your background.
