KRRC provides In-Centre Client Care to over 170 adults, and to over 40 clients living in the Community. A range of Lifestyles programs are available for both In-Centre clients and Community clients.
Each program is diverse and supports the unique needs of clients living with cognitive and physical disabilities, chronic mental illness, acquired brain injury, or a combination of diagnoses. Care programs continue to promote independence, choice and supported decision–making.
KRRC Youth Program is a community-based child and youth caring program that provides a safe, structured homelike environment for children in the care of the Minister of Community Services who are experiencing difficulty thriving in a less structured environment due to social, emotional, psychiatric or behavioural concerns.

Employee Learning & Development
Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre’s statement of values reflects the importance the organization places on continuous learning and development of its over 600 employees.
The Learning & Development team offers a range of educational opportunities for employees, using a variety of delivery methods. In-house training in a classroom setting is facilitated by both staff and guest facilitators who possess a specific body of knowledge, skills and experience on a given topic. Careful consideration is given to relevant external training opportunities and when prudent, off-site employee attendance is supported by the organization. Employees are also encouraged to take advantage of a variety of on-going web-based educational opportunities. Examples include links to webinars, articles, learning modules and best-practice documents from credible resources.
A comprehensive orientation program is provided to all new employees. In a combination of online learning and a structured classroom setting, employees engage in a general orientation designed to provide a better understanding of the organization, clients, policies and procedures, and fire and safety protocols. All employees are provided with a hands-on orientation to their specific role, responsibilities and work area. Direct client care employees (RRWs, RNs, LPNs, and Youth Workers) participate in a variety of other training particularly relevant to their work, which includes core competencies required by the Department of Community Services.
