What Do Rehabilitation Assistants (RAs) Do?
At Renew, rehabilitation assistants implement therapy programs designed by occupational therapists, psychotherapists, or other regulated health care providers. They help clients implement and integrate strategies recommended by their therapists into daily activities and routines. RAs are a cost-effective resource for brain injury rehabilitation, cognitive and executive function support, mental health support and learning skills support. RAs can work in the clinic or in the community, and have a very practical, real-life focus.
