Can help with ergonomic reviews at the workplace

Working with clients with mental illness to assist people living with anxiety and depression to manage their symptoms so they can live comfortably at home and in the community.

Working with clients to identify and purchase equipment, such as wheelchairs or bathroom safety devices, to ensure clients can safely return to or remain at home when their physical abilities have changed as a result of a condition such as multiple sclerosis or arthritis.

Working with clients following a workplace or motor vehicle injury to determine what the client may need in the future to be able to perform their daily activities.

Working with clients, who have experienced a change in their physical or mental abilities, to return to work by adapting how they do their job, what type of job they do or making changes to the workplace environment.
