The Yoga and Woodworking Programs are the Things that Really Make Us Unique

April 2, 2024 @ 7pm 

In Person Meeting Longo’s Walkers Line

About the Talk:

Philosophy –We are all people, and it comes down to asking yourself this question, “where would I want to stay if it were me?”  Brain injury can happen to anyone , ourselves included, at any time and so we ask “how would I want to be treated?”

Mission – our mission is to rebuild lives

Our Values – we value people.  Working with someone to rebuild their lives is a work of art.    With a mosaic you start with glass that is broken, and with brain injury you start a life that has been shattered.  Just as with a mosaic, you restart life with creativity, planning, passion and learning to end up with something beautiful. 

Our Beliefs – we believe in something we like to call “real life” rehabilitation.  Meaningful activities are the springboard for therapy that leads to a positive meaningful life.  We also believe in leading towards the most amount of independence possible for each client.  We like to say that our job is to work ourselves out of job.  While it is our job to assist our client’s in rebuilding their life the ultimate goal is to fade support away. 

About the Speakers:

Christina Versteeg

I am a mom and therapist living in Hamilton, Ontario. I like to share what I have learned over the years.  So in addition to working directly with our clients, I have taught behaviour courses around the Province.

Facts About Me: 

I am a Blue Rodeo fan and cyclist, in that order.
I enjoy trying new things because it makes me a jack of all trades, but you know what they say about that!
I speak Dutch fluently, which, yes, means I’m frugal (NOT CHEAP!)


Ted Newbigging 

I am a craftsman and therapist living in Hamilton, Ontario.  I like to make interesting projects in the shop and love working with people.  I believe that doing real things is the best therapy.

Facts About Me: 
I am messy, but organized.
I play guitar and sing and am decent at both of these things or at least I pretend to be.
I spent a good deal of my childhood growing up on a Canadian Forces base in Germany.
