Rehabilitation Support Workers

Block Building Therapies is committed to providing support and rehabilitation to our clients at the highest level of professionalism and care. Along with individualized programming designed by our therapists, we also provide one on one support through our Rehabilitation Support Workers (RSW).

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.

Our RSWs have the skills necessary to provide a safe and competent standard of rehabilitation care to clients and their families under the supervision of an Occupational Therapist (OT) and/or Physiotherapist (PT). Our RSWs can provide supervision, follow OT, PT and SLP programming and assist clients in the community. An RSW enables a client to develop, maintain or restore physical, social and cognitive skills according to the treatment plan. Our RSWs are available 7 days a week, days and evenings.

Services include:

  • Community Outings, such as medical appointments or social outings.
  • Meal Planning, including grocery shopping & teaching healthy nutrition.
  • Money Management, such as budgeting.
  • Home Management, such as learning independent ways to organize & declutter.
  • Time Management, following daily routines and schedules/checklists.
  • Exposure Therapy (see below)
  • Support for completing therapy assignments (OT, PT, Psych, SLP, etc.)
  • Supervision or support at the gym, following or completing an exercise routine.
  • Social Skills Training such as 1-1 or group based social training opportunities.

Exposure Therapy

Block Building Therapies offers an Exposure Therapy Program that is carried out by an Occupational Therapist and Rehabilitation Support Worker. All the direct work is collaborated with the treating Psychologist (if applicable). Our program focuses on providing education, relaxation strategies and real world exposure.
