Cognitive Impairment, Deterioration, and Injury Rehabilitation
Various skills and capabilities are needed to function daily, excel in our chosen endeavours, do one’s job, and/or lead an organization. Central to the execution of these skills and abilities is a person’s cognitive function. Staying “mentally sharp” has been the foundational condition of a successful employee, organizational leader, and entrepreneur. Any indication of cognitive deterioration can be a serious cause for concern not just for the individuals themselves but also for all those whom they work with and lead.
If you or any of your employees, colleagues, family members, or friends have sustained any of the following, cognitive functioning assessment should be completed:
- Traumatic brain injury (e.g. due to accidents)
- Heart Attack
- Severe illness
- Serious Medical Condition
- Specific Psychological Conditions
A person with cognitive impairment, deterioration, or injury could experience a noticeable weakening of their concentration and attention, memory, learning and retention, self-regulation, speech and language, information processing speed, reasoning, planning, and/or problem-solving speed and ability. As one ages, cognitive deterioration may also occur where a slowdown in cognitive function is noticeable even without any brain injury or medical condition. Such impairment or deterioration can affect one’s ability to work, communicate, maintain relationships, and/or carry out daily tasks that were once routine.
A person with cognitive impairment, deterioration, or injury may also experience significant psychological strain. They may feel worried and frustrated with their decreased ability to do some of the things that they could previously do with ease, they may feel more anxious, become less confident in their abilities, tire faster, or they may feel depressed and isolated with the change in their abilities. As such, initiating cognitive rehabilitation as well as psychological care as soon as possible is essential in facilitating their recovery process.
How we can help
Using state-of-art perceptual-cognitive equipment and tools, we can help to assess, re-train and re-build as much as possible, a person’s cognitive and functional abilities as well as help them to gain new skills to compensate for what was lost. We will also help them to deal with the psychological and relational impact of their impairment. Ultimately, we aim to help the person regain a noticeable degree of theircognitive functions and independence.
