Cognitive and Mental Health Intake Assessment
The focus of this program is to help individuals get back to living following a diagnosis associated with a mental illness, psychological injury, or mild traumatic brain injury. Due to the variety, complexity and individuality of each client, the treatment plan is developed based on the specific needs of the client.
Cognitive Functional Capacity Evaluation
Evaluation and assessment of the functional impairment of an individual’s memory, attention, planning, problem solving, learning, impulsivity, and tolerance for multiple demands following an acquired brain injury, neurological injury, or condition with cognitive deficits. (Available at Moncton location only)
Occupational Therapy Consultation
An assessment completed by an occupational therapist, designed to identify barriers to an individual’s health and well-being. Through engagement in occupation, the occupational therapist will make recommendations to support the individual in achieving what they want to do, need to do, or are expected to do in the workplace.
Cognitive and Mental Health Rehabilitation
This program begins with a cognitive and mental health assessment, in order to identify the individual’s performance strengths and barriers. This information is then used to create a rehabilitation plan to help get them back to living. The individual will be classified into one of the four levels of cognitive and/or mental health rehabilitation:
- Level 1 – Individual Occupational Therapy Sessions
- Level 2 – Individual Occupational Therapy Sessions with Kinesiology Sessions
- Level 3 – Work Readiness Program
- Level 4 – Gradual Return to Work
Cognitive Job Analysis

Transferable Skills Analysis
Assessment of possible job options for an individual, if their previous position is no longer available, or if they are no longer able to perform their last position (i.e. due to injury or illness). Suitable options are determined from the individual’s skill-set and current physical condition.
An assessment used to compare an individual’s functional abilities to the physical demands of a specific job. Please note that this assessment is done through a file review and requires a recent Functional Capacity Evaluation report and a Job Site Analysis report.
Return to Work Coordination
A rehabilitation protocol designed to enable an individual to safely return to work after an injury or illness. The program includes an assessment, an on-site meeting with both employer and employee, and a plan designed to enable an individual’s return to work after an injury or illness. The individual and employer are supported throughout the process.
PGAP – The Progressive Goal Attainment Program
A step-by-step, evidence-based intervention program delivered by trained rehabilitation professionals, focusing on education as well as skill building. It is considered to be one of the most cost-effective approaches for reducing disability and fostering a return to work. This program is aimed at promoting re-integration into life-role activities and increasing quality of life, and is suitable for most chronic health issues such as pain-related conditions, mental health conditions, PTSD, cancer survivors, etc. The ten week intervention program is designed to target psychosocial risk factors for disabilities such as:
- Catastrophic thinking,
- Symptom exacerbation fears,
- Disability beliefs,
- Perceived injustice.
ADL Reactivation (Activities of daily living)
A program to help prepare individuals for a successful transition back to the workplace following a lengthy absence due to injury or illness. The occupational therapist will assist in setting realistic and measurable goals for continuous improvement in health and well-being. Through engagement in occupations, including activities individuals want to do, need to do, or are expected to do, we help people get back to living. Services are offered in either the client’s home, the clinic, in the workplace, or a combination of all three.
Life Care Planning
The Life Care Plan provides a report on what is deemed reasonably necessary, based on provided medical evidence, to preserve and promote a client’s mental and physical well-being. The recommendations seek to identify what is reasonably required to return the client as close as possible back to the position they would have been in, had the injury not occurred. The Life Care Plan is a dynamic document based on published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis, and research. It provides an organized, concise plan for current and future needs with associated cost for individuals who have experienced a catastrophic injury or have chronic health care needs.
