Treatment Services

Occupational Therapists

Treatment includes increased participation in return to activities of daily living, assistive device recommendations and home modifications. Our OTs are equipped with the latest assessment tools for the objective evaluation of injuries and care, and are proficient at developing treatment plans for improved function.

Our OTs are CBT trained and conduct this service within their scope of practice.

Case Managers

Provide rehabilitation counseling to the client and family, act as a liaison for the insurer, and ensure effective communication between all members of the rehabilitation team.

Cognitive Treatment

Using cognitive remediation and developing compensation strategies to address cognitive problems demonstrated in the cognitive assessment.

PGAP Certified Occupational Therapists

Persistent pain usually leads to marked restrictions in functional ability, and thus limitations in the individual’s capacity to manage with ease routine household tasks, activities of daily living, participation in one’s normal recreational activities and usually the ability to perform one’s normal work.

Our OT are certified on the PGAP (Progressive Goal Attainment Program)  and are assisting clients in reducing disability associated with pain, depression and other chronic health conditions.

In-Home and Community Neuro-Physiotherapists

In addition, the PT develops an exercise program at the gym, which is then facilitated by the RSWs.

Social Workers

Supporting clients and families with their emotional reaction to the trauma and assisting them to develop coping strategies related to the client and family function.

Readiness to return to Work

This assessment is completed by an OT and establishes the client’s current functional abilities in relation to his or her essential work duties at the pre-accident workplace. The OT develops a return to work plan that may start with a volunteer placement and will gradually develop to a full return to work in collaboration with the client and the employer.
