Health care practitioners and case managers have often queried how best to serve clients who require significantly more expertise than an attendant care provider can offer, but who do not require the training and experience of a Rehabilitation Therapist. “Rehabilitation Assistants” are Brainworks’ answer to this long-time dilemma.
Brainworks’ Rehabilitation Assistants provide one-to-one therapeutic intervention and support to clients of all ages and with varying levels of ability and disability. Intervention occurs in whatever location it is required: Homes, schools, work sites, hospitals, rest homes, and other locations as appropriate.
Rehabilitation Assistants follow clear direction from treating professionals regarding their specific role and purpose with any client. They complete feedback keys or interim reports provided by the treatment team and submit them to the team on a weekly basis. Additional telephone and/or written updates are provided at the discretion of the treating professionals. Rehabilitation Assistants do not complete formal reports. Brainworks provides administrative supervision and support to all its employees, including Rehabilitation Assistants.
Brainworks’ Rehabilitation Assistants are all employees of Brainworks who have successfully passed a rigorous hiring process. While they have varying educational backgrounds, they all have experience working with people with disabilities, and have demonstrated the ability to provide support from a client-centred perspective.
