Occupational Therapy

Our clinical Occupational Therapy services are evidence-based, goal-oriented, and client-centred in order to promote successful outcomes in rehabilitation. Our OTs use meaningful activities to guide individuals through recovery from injury, disability, and/or illness back to the activities they want or need to do to achieve a better quality of life. Services are offered in the home, hospital (discharge planning), community, and/or workplace. 

Occupational therapy services include:

  • an individualized assessment, during which the client and Occupational Therapist collaborate to determine the therapy goals

  • customized intervention to improve the client’s ability to perform daily activities he or she would like to do and/or need to do to reach the goals 

  • an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or to modify the intervention plan.

Occupational therapy services also include comprehensive evaluations and will assess and address the individual’s physical, cognitive, sensory perceptual and emotional functional status, and determine barriers preventing participation in his/her normal activities of daily living.

Assessments include:

  • Comprehensive OT In-Home 

  • Home Safety

  • Home Accessibility

  • Assistive Devices Program (ADP) 

  • Attendant Care Needs

  • Housekeeping and Home Maintenance 

  • Caregiving 

  • Catastrophic (Situational and GOS-E)

Case Management

The role of the Case Manager is to access and coordinate all necessary services for individuals in order to facilitate optimal recovery in their rehabilitation. A Case Manager can become involved at any point in time. Ideally, a referral is made during the acute stage. Often individuals will be seen while still in hospital or inpatient rehabilitation.

The Case Manager performs the following:

  • Meets with the individual client, family members and health care providers and gathers information through available medical reports to assess their needs and the most appropriate therapy and services

  • Determine most suitable therapists based upon injury type and expertise, and facilitate referrals including providing all necessary information to the clinicians

  • Maintain communication with treating physicians, rehabilitation professionals, insurers and lawyer to ensure they are up to date regarding individual’s injuries and prognosis and ensure establishment of mutual rehabilitation goals

  • Monitor progression of rehabilitation and address issues as they arise to ensure the most timely and optimal recovery possible.

Skilled case management ensures rehabilitation is goal-directed, cost-effective, individualized and client-centered.


Rehabilitation Support Services

A Rehabilitation Support Worker (RSW) is an unregulated care provider who implements functional rehabilitation goals prescribed and supervised by regulated health professionals such as an Occupational Therapist (or physiotherapist, psychologist, SLP, etc.) when working with clients.

They are a vital component to the treatment team as they provide consistent, frequent and cost-effective care.
