Under the supervision of a full-time dedicated Care Coordinator, the Rehabilitation Support Workers (RSW) work one-on-one with clients on a regular basis to support their progress through rehabilitation exercises, activities and other daily routines, as outlined in the rehabilitation plan developed with the client and by rehabilitation team members.

All Wright Rehab RSWs receive specialized training in the support of people recovering from brain injury and spinal cord trauma and the challenges that individuals face post-traumatic injury.  Our team members bring first-hand knowledge, training and professional experience combined with competencies in the following:

  • Compassionate care
  • Empathy and understanding
  • Emotional support
  • Family dynamics
  • Therapeutic programming
  • Psychological disturbance
  • Behavior management
  • Educational assistance
  • Job coaching

RSWs work under the direction and coordination of various treatment team professionals such as occupational therapists, social workers, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, nutritionists, neuropsychologists, to name a few.

The RSW provides the compassion, the empathy and sometimes even the motivation to support you in your rehabilitation goals.  The RSW develops a weekly update form for the rehabilitation team outlining current goals incorporated into each contact session and how the client managed the goal tasks and activities. The monitoring of goals ensures that you receive maximum benefits.

Selecting the right RSW is important. The RSW’s documentation will impact everything from personal interactions with care professionals to health care decisions and could also  impact  insurance and legal outcomes. Understanding the importance of a good fit, Wright Rehab has developed a dedicated matching program to connect you to the right RSW.

Experience and Security

RSWs have an educational background in a rehabilitation certificate program, social service degree, or degree from a related field such as psychology, social work, or child and youth worker program and a minimum five years work experience.

All Wright Rehab RSWs have at least three years experience providing rehabilitation support and are sensitive to client needs and skilled in personal care.  They compassionately, empathetically and patiently face rehabilitation challenges with clients daily. Many speak a variety of languages and are familiar with and sensitive to cultural norms.

All Wright Rehab workers are interviewed and are subject to detailed reference and police checks.  We check that all associates are in full compliance for certifications, vulnerable sector background checks, peer review, client feedback and are participating in continuing education.
