Rehabilitation


W hereas treatment focuses solely on symptomatic improvement, rehabilitation focuses on improved functioning. Most programmes are focused on functioning at work. Return to work plans are customised for each person as the timing and nature thereof is crucial. Return to work can occur immediately, following, during or after a rehabilitation programme. Often rehabilitation occurs whilst at work.


For more information on what occupational therapy is, please see FAQ. You can also download our service offering brochures for insurers and employers.



Types of Programmes

Work Rehabilitation.

    The following customised interventions can be offered:
  • Education of individuals, family and employers.
  • Designing a return-to-work plan, taking into account the person’s current and expected level of functioning, and matching this to job demands
  • Work preparation which includes addressing residual symptoms and impairment to ensure readiness for return to work.
  • Work hardening in situ by specific and progressive participation in workplace hours and duties.
  • Vocational support in order to maintain and manage possible difficulties experienced.
  • Case management, a process often required by insurers, which includes managing the above-mentioned interventions

Life Role Reintegration

These programmes focus on “getting your life back” by exploring and enhancing your residual capacity.

The Progressive Goal Attainment Programme™ is one of the standardised programmes offered which spans 10 weeks. It is an evidence-based programme for reducing disability associated with pain, depression, cancer and other chronic health conditions. Please note that this programme is not yet funded by medical aids, however a portion may be claimable. It is often paid for by insurers given the return-to-work focus. For more details on this standardised programme, please see the PGAP website www.PDP-PGAP.com.
