A fter an illness or injury it is sometimes hard to know how injury restrictions and pain/levels of stamina will affect movement abilities in the workplace and home. The demands of the tasks have to be appropriately matched to ensure a durable, productive role is maintained.
For some people, it is not possible to return to their previous job role, or resume leisure interests or home responsibilities. This can add to feelings of depression or anxiety about what type of work you could possibly undertake now and in the future.
At Coastal Rehab the emphasis is on identifying an individual’s abilities in all areas including:
- Physical skills
- Thinking skills
- Transferrable work skills
- Psychological strengths
By clearly identifying a person’s functional capacities and limitations, an appropriate job match can be made, or alternatively the right amount of community support can be determined.
Functional Evaluations help determine a client’s capacities and limitations, allowing independence and productivity to be maximised.
