Physiotherapy Assessments are also completed by qualified Physiotherapists who specialize in brain injury. Services include:

  • In-home physical therapy assessments with detailed physical programs for optimal recovery.

Rehabilitation Support Services are offered with or without the direct involvement of an Occupational Therapist from Block Building Therapies, however all Rehabilitation Support programs are directly supervised by an Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist. Rehabilitation Support Services are offered at a reduced rate in comparison to a therapist and can therefore be a cost effective way to achieve rehabilitation goals. Services include:

  • Community Outings, such as medical appointments or social outings.
  • Meal planning, including grocery shopping, teaching healthy nutrition planning & pacing strategies.
  • Money management, such as budgeting.
  • Home management, such as learning independent ways to organize & declutter.
