Occupational therapy

We provide Occupational Therapy services for employers, employees and insurers. Employees can also contact us directly if they’re having difficulty completing their work-related tasks.

Occupational therapy for employees

We aim to get your employees back to work and functioning at their best.

Occupational therapy is a branch of health care that helps people of all ages who have physical, cognitive and/or psychosocial problems. At Beukes and Reynders Occupational Therapists, our dedicated, on-site Occupational Therapists can help your employees adjust to working life after an injury or illness.

Occupational therapy can help your employees if they have an injury, pain, illness, or a disability that makes it hard for them to complete specific tasks. The goal is to give them the tools they need to perform better at work and be successful in their daily tasks.

Occupational Therapy services for Insurers

We offer Functional Capacity Evaluations, Case Management and Vocational Rehabilitation to Insurers.

After your claims assessment team determines the validity of a claim, we offer further evaluation to determine the member’s capacity for work.

Our assessment includes a comprehensive physical, cognitive and psycho-emotional evaluation; and results are interpreted to determine the member’s capacity to work in their own or an adapted position, or in an alternative occupation. Our reports include comprehensive recommendations for reasonable accommodations and/or workplace adaptations. Our therapists offer case management and vocational rehabilitation following assessment, should the member be determined well-suited to engage in a rehabilitation process. We offer objective assessments and we provide reports in a timely manner.
