Who we are
As social workers, we support individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. We work with people to develop their skills and enhance their ability to use their own strengths and resources, and the resources of the community, to resolve problems.
What we do
- Assist clients and their families to acknowledge a new diagnosis and to develop a plan of care best suited to individual needs.
- Help clients and their families adjust to changes in lifestyle, life roles, and functioning due to physical injury or disability.
- Provide clients and their families with tools and coping strategies that address psychological stress during the rehabilitation process.
- Share relevant information with clients and their families regarding the rehabilitation and recovery process, and available community resources.
- Refer to, and advocate for, community-based support services to enhance quality of life.
Who we see
To be eligible for outpatient social work within the rehabilitation program, a client must have been diagnosed with a neurological condition or is involved in active recovery from a recent, debilitating injury or condition that impacts the psychological and/or emotional well-being.
