Rehabilitation and support

We understand how meaningful it can be to regain your ability to earn a living. So, we’ve created an occupational rehabilitation program to suit your individual needs as part of the TPD Assist process. We’ll work in partnership with you, your treating doctor and your employer to assist you back to suitable work as part of your recovery plan. 

Occupational rehabilitation services may include:

  • an initial assessment with your treating doctor to identify your unique support needs
  • engaging an external occupational rehabilitation provider
  • guidance to help your treating doctor create a personalised treatment plan for you
  • co-ordination of support between your health external rehabilitation consultant treating doctor and employer
  • designing and implementing your own ‘return to work’ plan – which may include re-skilling, retraining and assisting your recovery via regular upgrading of your work hours and duties as you improve
  • work-related counselling and support for secondary conditions (such as those that affect mental health)
  • job-seeking advice and career guidance.

Rehabilitation is not for everyone. Together we can assist you back to work and back to a fuller life!
