What is OT?

 

According to the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario (COTO) website, Occupational Therapists (OTs) are health care professionals who help people learn or re-learn to manage the every day activities that are important to them, including caring for themselves or others, caring for their home, participating in paid or unpaid work and leisure activities. The people occupational therapists work with may be having difficulties because of an accident, disability, disease, emotional or developmental problem or change related to the normal aging process.

 

What is a case manager?

 

A case manager helps clients and their families navigate the complex health care and rehabilitation system after a serious or catastrophic accident. The case manager assesses, plans, advocates, researches, provides choices, and coordinates the client’s care and rehabilitation. The case manager will also monitor and evaluate the options and services required to meet an individual’s care needs, while ensuring that available resources are being used in a timely and cost-effective manner. The case manager will monitor changes in the client’s situation, help with paperwork, and facilitate communication between the client, family, rehabilitation team, insurance company and legal representative as appropriate.
