Posted: March 9, 2022


Join our team to make a difference to people living with acquired brain injury and stroke!

As a Life Redesign Coach, you will work in partnership with the individuals who live at CONNECT. You will work in a house with up to seven residents, who are redesigning their lives after brain injury or stroke. Using coaching methods, you will help residents set and achieve goals based on what is most meaningful to them. A typical day can include helping residents with: Getting ready for the day, completing exercise programs, personal care, getting out into the community, participating in recreation and leisure interests, meal preparation, and, most importantly, helping them reach their individual Life Redesign goals.
