Cognitive Impairment, Deterioration, and Injury Rehabilitation

If an employee has sustained any of the following, they may experience some degree of cognitive impairment or deterioration:

  • Concussion
  • Aneurysm
  • Traumatic brain injury (e.g. due to accidents)
  • Stroke
  • Heart Attack
  • Severe illness
  • Serious Medical Condition
  • Specific Psychological Conditions
  • Aging

There could be a noticeable weakening of their concentration and attention, memory, learning and retention, self-regulation, speech and language, information processing speed, reasoning, planning, problem-solving speed and/or decision-making ability. Aging individuals, even without any brain injury or medical condition can also experience cognitive deterioration where a slowdown in cognitive function is noticeable.

Such impairment or deterioration can in turn affect one’s ability to work, communicate, maintain relationships, and/or carry out daily tasks that were once routine. When an employee experiences some of these challenges, their mental health may also be affected. 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 or shame and embarrassment, 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 mental health care as soon as possible is essential in facilitating the employee’s recovery process.

In consultation with their medical care givers and using state-of-art perceptual-cognitive equipment and tools, we can help your employee to assess, re-train and re-build, as much as possible, their cognitive and functional abilities. In addition, we will help them to deal with the mental health and relational impact of their impairment. Ultimately, we aim to help your employee/member regain a noticeable degree of their cognitive functions and their independence.
