Vocational Therapy In Metro Vancouver/Greater Vancouver And The Fraser Valley
Struggling to find work or return to work after an injury or illness? Our vocational rehabilitation experts can help you succeed in your career goals.
What Is Vocational Rehabilitation?
After an injury or illness, a common goal is to return to our previous lifestyle, activities, and routine. Returning to work facilitates the recovery process and adds significant value to our lifestyle balance, mental health, and financial wellbeing. However, returning to a previous job is not always suitable or available for everyone after an injury or illness.
Vocational Rehabilitation can assist you in finding employment that is suitable to your abilities, is meaningful to you, and reflects your highest earning potential. Vocational Rehabilitation can find volunteer opportunities that help to develop industry-leading skills required for competitive employment or recommend appropriate continuing education to further your development for work-related goals.
If returning to your pre-injury job is available, vocational rehabilitation can facilitate the process of returning to work. Our rehabilitation experts can meet with your employer to discuss options for returning to work, suggest modifications in your workplace to better support your ability to complete job duties, and implement and monitor your return-to-work program to ensure a successful return to pre-injury job duties and work hours.
If you are searching for a new career, vocational rehabilitation can assist you in interest exploration and assist you in planning the steps needed to increase your skills and overall employability using their expertise of the job market.
Vocational Rehabilitation collaborates with you to return to or find a career that you find meaningful and can be successful in, with long-term sustainability.
