Active Rehabilitation

Work with our rehabilitation Kinesiologists who understand the difficulties related to recovery.  Our active rehab programs begin with a comprehensive assessment, and result in a customized exercise program tat helps you meet your physical goals. 


You can complete your program in your home, our clinic or a community gym.

Assistive Technology

After an injury, illness, or other functional interruption or setback, there may be a need for extra equipment and technologies to help compensate for the loss of function in certain areas. These can include:


  • memory aids: timers or alarms for cooking or medication reminders, calendars or day planners for scheduling, posted checklists for routines, portable voice recorders 

  • hearing aids: assistive listening devices that amplify sound, computer programs that synthesize speech to text, picture boards, alerting devices for when a doorbell or telephone has rung 

  • visual aids: glasses, braille reader and embosser, screen readers (reads computer content out-loud), personalized keyboards

  • walking aids: crutches, wheelchairs, rollators, canes


Our Occupational Therapists identify and prescribe the types of assistive technologies you might need to help you participate more fully in your life. This form of assessment and written report includes:


  • Gathering background information on the individual

  • Identification of the tasks the individual needs to accomplish

  • Matching the individual with equipment features

  • Analyzing equipment considerations

  • Arranging trial usage of equipment, when possible

  • Developing training plans for use of the equipment

  • Arranging follow-up activities

Cognitive Functional Capacity Evaluation (Cog FCE)

A Cognitive Functional Capacity Evaluation (Cog FCE) is for individuals with physical and cognitive deficits.


A Cog FCE is a 2 day standardized evaluation of an individual's cognitive abilities, tolerances and limitations. This evaluation is usually conducted to inform return to work planning, including matching an individual against a specific occupation or appropriateness of training and likelihood of success in cognitive components of future employment.

Cognitive Rehabilitation

Cognitive rehabilitation is an individualized treatment program for people who have suffered a traumatic head injury, psychiatric illness, or stroke. The goal of cognitive rehabilitation is to restore normal cognitive functioning (normal memory and reasoning), or to compensate for cognitive deficits.  Each cognitive rehab program consists of specific skills training and practice plus metacognitive strategies, depending upon your needs.

Cost Of Future Care / Life Care Plans

When a individual has had a serious injury or is living with a life-altering illness, planning for their future is complex. Our Cost of Future Care – Life Care Plans address the individual’s specific medical conditions and their emotional and financial needs, and balance these with their strengths and current supports. We work with each individual to prepare a detailed, long-term medical and wellness plan that identifies the needs that are likely to arise during the rest of their life. We identify resources in the individual’s community and itemize these in a comprehensive written report with detailed costing tables. When we have completed the work, each individual will know what their future care needs are likely to be and what they are likely to cost. These reports are often used in:


  • Determining settlement awards following catastrophic injury

  • Facilitating retirement planning for people living with chronic illness

  • Identifying future costs for those who may not be able to live alone during their adult years


Our Registered Clinical Counsellors provide 1:1 counselling therapy for such issues as mood disorders (anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder), ADD/HD, post-trauma, grief and loss, parenting issues, and adjustment to disabilities or new health conditions as these relate to the workplace. Every session focuses on distress tolerance and interpersonal skills training; homework is always assigned and reviewed in the next session. Sessions can be delivered either face-to-face or via e-Counselling using a secure, confidential web-video platform.



Ergonomic / Workplace Assessment

Ergonomic assessment is performed by one of our Kinesiologists or Occupational Therapists at your client or employee's work or training site, whether at your office in their homes. We review the ergonomic health of the training or work station, then use the findings to make recommendations that prevent or resolve injuries related to poor ergonomics. Several factors are considered, including the job activity being performed, the demands on the individual, any furniture and equipment being used, and the information used to perform the job (how it is presented, accessed, and revised). Upon completion of this assessment, a written report details the ergonomic strengths and difficulties, and recommends needed assistive technology or equipment to ensure the individual's success on the training or work site. A follow up visit to the work site, once recommendations are in place, is available.

Equipment Prescriptions

When you need to purchase medical equipment, and you want your extended health provider, such as Blue Cross, to pay for it, you will need an equipment prescription.  Our Occupational Therapists can provide you with what you need, in the format you need it, to ensure timely reimbursement for medical equipment.  

Exercise - Customized

You want to get back in shape, but you have a chronic health condition or a disability.  Our rehabilitation Kinesiologists can help.  You will begin by meeting with one of our Kins to complete a comprehensive physical and medical assessment.  A customized exercise plan is created for you to share with your physician or nurse practitioner to ensure your safety. 


You can complete your program in your home, our clinic or a community gym.

Family Compensation Act

In BC, the Family Compensation Act is the legislation under which claims are filed when a loved one has died through the fault or negligence of someone else. Compensation under the Act requires a determination of the type and level of support the deceased person was giving to his dependents. Support may be financial, which determines a cost; it may also be care-taking and emotional support, the cost of which to replace is sometimes more difficult to quantify. If the claim is to provide for the care of a child, the costs are extended until the child is able to care for himself.


At Seasons, Family Compensation Assessments are conducted by Occupational Therapists and Social Workers and focus on identifying the family’s values and various roles, especially the role played by the deceased. The final report includes detailed costing related to continuing the support the deceased had provided.

File Review and Rebuttal

Completed by any of our therapists, according to the type of file to be reviewed, a medical file review and rebuttal provides a professional “second opinion” prior to mediation or settlement of a personal injury claim. This service is most often requested by either plaintiff or defense counsel in complex cases where medical conditions were present prior to the accident or illness.

How will the individual’s head injury, mood disorder, or learning disability affect their ability to retain employment? A cognitive assessment helps answer this question by using standardized testing for cognitive functions, including attention, memory, executive functioning (organizational skills), language, visuo-spatial, and life management skills, among others, as needed. The written report identifies cognitive deficits that may affect training and/or employment, and makes recommendations for strategies and accommodations related to these, as well as any additional services needed.

For any individual with mood disorder or de-conditioning that is likely to affect employment, a Fitness Assessment is the first step in recommending the appropriate exercise program. Beginning with individualized assessment through medical review, consultation with other professionals as needed, and physical testing, the Fitness Assessment provides the data needed for the Kinesiologist to determine if the individual requires a gentle, progressive physical program, either pool or land-based or both through our Kickstarter program.  If the individual is ready to begin conditioning related to specific occupational demands, part-time and full-time Conditioning for Work programs will be recommended.

Fitness Assessment

A Fitness Assessment is conducted for any individual with a mood disorder or de-conditioning that is likely to affect employment. Our Exercise Program Development service provides individualized assessments through medical review, and consultation with other professionals as needed, and the Functional Movement Screen™ leading to design and written report outlining an individualized physical program (pool or land-based) to enhance each individual's physical function.

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)

The Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a standardized evaluation of the individual’s physical abilities, tolerances, and limitations when performing work-related tasks and activities. Conducted at Seasons Health Therapies clinic in Kamloops, BC, over 1 or 2 consecutive days, these evaluations are completed by Matheson-trained Occupational Therapists or Kinesiologists.  An FCE is usually conducted to inform return-to-work planning by determining the likelihood of the individual's success in regards to the physical components of future training and/or employment. An FCE is also frequently  used during legal discussions for settlement or during court proceedings.  The written reports, either Summary or Comprehensive, include the individual’s maximum safe working capacity, limitations and restrictions, and recommendations for activities to enhance the individual’s physical status, if appropriate.

A 1 Day FCE is suitable to determine an individual’s current physical abilities, limitations, and restrictions in relation to career decision-making. A 2 Day FCE is suitable when complex health concerns or chronic pain affect stamina and recovery from one day to the next for a individual (ie: “Can this individual work 8 hours/day over several days?”).

For both a 1 Day FCE and 2 Day FCE, either a Summary Report or a Comprehensive Report can be provided. A Summary Report provides a response to the referral question(s), data regarding functional limitations and restrictions, and maximum safe working capacity. If appropriate, it can also include recommendations to enhance an individual’s physical status. A Comprehensive Report provides all information included in the Summary Report, but it also includes the raw data collected during the FCE.

Graduated Return To Work Planning

GRTW Planning allows an Occupational Therapist or Kinesiologist to work with you and your employer, either on your worksite or in our clinic, to plan for your return to work in a gradual manner in order to ensure you are successful.  Getting back to work early and successfully is a critical part of managing post-injury mood changes, and reducing de-conditioning.

Home Safety Assessments

If you want to stay in your home safely, and you're wondering how to arrange things easily so that you can, an Occupational Therapist will give you the best advice.  Whether you need structural home modifications or easy fixes such as the installation of grab bars, you can stay longer and more safely when you have the right environment. 

Hospital Discharge

The time of discharge from the hospital can be a very stressful time for the individual and their family. They may wonder how they will manage at home, what equipment they need, how to get to medical appointments, and much more.  They may wonder what services they need, and how to access these.  Our Occupational Therapists at Seasons understand these complex challenges, and assist with Hospital Discharge coordination regularly.  They contact the hospital staff familiar with the individual's medical status and needs, and conduct a home assessment to ensure accessibility and safety. They arrange for necessary home support and appropriate equipment prior to, or immediately after, an individual’s discharge from the hospital. The Occupational Therapist usually conducts a full Occupational Therapy Assessment, including providng required reports to the funder. 

Job Accommodation Assessment

This is a comprehensive evaluation performed by a Seasons Kinesiologist or Occupational Therapist. Its purpose is to evaluate the changes needed at a worksite to accommodate a worker’s limitations. The accommodations could include physical, supervisory, or work condition changes, among others. The worker is present during this assessment.

Job Coaching

Job Coaching is appropriate for individuals who, due to their injuries or illnesses, have difficulty either understanding the essential demands of a new job, or staying motivated and on task in completing those demands. This service is provided on the work-site by skilled Rehabilitation Assistants and Job Coaches. Education and support, as needed, is also provided to the individual’s employer to ensure employment sustainability.

Job Demands Analysis

The Job Demands Analysis consists of a visit to the individual's worksite by a Seasons Kinesiologist or Occupational Therapist to systematically evaluate the physical, cognitive, social and other demands of all essential and non-essential job tasks. This analysis leads to a functional job description, having objectively measured workplace risk factors to assist with return-to-work planning. During this analysis, the worker is not present.

Job Development / Job Placement

Job Development / Placement services are appropriate when marketing the individual directly to potential employers is the most effective way for the individual to enter,  or re-enter, the work force.  Placement may be for volunteer placement, unpaid work trial, during  which the individual is covered by Seasons' WSBC coverage, or paid employment, either part-time or full-time. Job Development / Placement services are provided by coordinators with extensive connections to, and knowledge of, the employment market in Kamloops and the surrounding communities. 

Job Search Skills Training

Job Search Skills training and support is provided to individuals who are ready to look for work, but lack the basic skills to conduct an effective job search. Training may be provided either 1:1 or in groups, and includes, as needed by the individual, creating targeted resumes and cover letters, developing interviewing, cold call, and call-back skills, applying both in person and via the internet, and organizing an effective job search.

Job Site Assessment

A Job Site Assessment is provided to individuals who are ready to return to work but may be apprehensive about conditions of the job. One of our practitioners will meet with each indiviual and the Employer on the job site to determine the accommodations and/or modifications that will contribute to success in a new job.  

Job Site Visits

Similar to Job Site Assessment (above), a Job Site Visit allows your therapist to understand the full intricacies of your job, and make recommendations for accommodations or modifications in order to keep you in your job, or return you to it after injury or illness. 

Kinesiology Assessment & Treatment

After suffering an injury that is affecting an individual's physical activities in some way, a Kinesiologist, sometimes in partnership with Physiotherapists or Chiropractors, can assess, develop, and coordinate a customized, clinically-based exercise program. Beginning with an individual, full-body assessment, conducted by a Seasons Occupational Therapist or Kinesiologist, includes testing the specific areas of injury and others, such as: 


  • Range of motion

  • Flexibility

  • Strength

  • Muscle endurance

  • Cardiovascular fitness

Labour Market Survey

Before an individual registers for additional training, a Labour Market Survey (LMS) should be conducted. This survey encompasses research of the labor market specific to the individual’s occupational goals and geographical location, looking for current job openings, employment prospects, salary ranges, qualification requirements, and work conditions. A written report includes copies of current openings in the occupation being considered, and is essential for making informed decisions regarding career decisionmaking and training.

Medical - Legal Assessments

A wide range of Medical-Legal assessments are available, conducted by experienced, Expert Witness-qualified Occupational Therapists. Contact us regarding what you need. 

Mobility Assessments

When you need equipment to help you get around, you may find your extended health (Blue Cross) or accident insurance provider (ICBC, WSBC) may pay for it.  Our Occupational Therapists can visit you in your home to assess you for your mobility needs and provide you with a written prescription to support your request for funding. 

OT Assessment

If you have suffered an injury, serious illness, or setbacks in normal functioning, an Occupational Therapy Assessment can help guide you in returning to a more independent and functional life. An OT Assessment, the essential 'first step' in determing the individual's customized rehabilition plan, allows the OT to establish a comprehensive profile of the client in order to inform the interventions, professional opinions, or recommendations for service needs for the client. In order to support and enable the individual to perform the tasks they deem necessary, or to address their daily functioning priorities, in their home, community or work settings, our Occupational Therapists assess the following domains of functioning for both strengths and difficulties:


  • Activities of Daily Living (ADLs): personal care daily activities, such as eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, walking (transferring), and others

  • Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs): activities related to independent living, such as shopping, cooking, managing medication, performing chores, driving, or managing finances, among others

  • Physical: physical abilities including strength, range of motion, and endurance, among others

  • Emotional: symptoms of depression, anxiety, and post-traumaic stress, and others

  • Cognitive: memory, processing speed, ability to divide attention, task flexibility, and others

  • Social: social network, soial skills, behavioural patterns, and communication skills and styles

  • Leisure: preferred leisure activities and participation in leisure activities 


A written report is then provided to the funder, outlining the results of the OT Assessment and the customized rehabilitation program designed for the client, building on areas of strength and supporting areas of difficulty.  This may include recommendations for additional services, in order to support all areas of difficulty.  

Outplacement Counselling

Outplacement is a post-employment (whether voluntary or involuntary) support service that responsible and ethical  organizations use to help former employees transition to new jobs and help them re-orient themselves in the job market. These services can take place on the job site at the time of termination OR in our offices post-termination.  


Outplacement Counselling (post-termination) begins with an Intake appointment where our therapists work to understand your outplacement needs.  You may be provided with emotional support, updated resume / cover letters, review of current effective job search skills, including new employer research, interviewing skills, online job search, and job leads. 


Physical Demands Analysis (PDA)

The Physical Demands Analysis consists of a visit to the individual’s worksite by a Seasons Kinesiologist or Occupational Therapist to systematically evaluate the physical demands of all essential and non-essential job tasks of the individual’s job. A written report is provided. The individual does not need to be in attendance for the worksite visit.

Pre-Vocational (Employability) Assessment

A Pre-Vocational assessment, also called an Employability Assessment, is recommended when the individual is dealing with any number of factors affecting return to work. This assessment identifies the readiness of the individual to engage in vocational activities and allows for recommendations to be made for services and supports for the individual if they are deemed “not ready for vocational activities”. In order to identify and measure the severity of barriers likely to affect an individual’s ability to work, the assessment includes a bio-psychosocial review, standardized Level B psychometric assessment, such as those for cognition (following brain injury), depression, anxiety, addictions, and others, as well as non-standardized instruments testing social and workplace skills, and consultation, approved by the individual, with others who can provide information or opinions in relation to pre-vocational activities. 

A written report includes recommendations for employment-related services and accommodations for employment, as well as the individual’s suitability for an application for Federal or Provincial disability.

Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP)

The Progressive Goal Attainment Program™ (PGAP™) is designed to complement the rehabilitation process by reducing psychosocial barriers, improving independence and quality of life, and facilitating return to work goals. PGAP™ teaches scheduling skils, problem-solving skills, enhancements to motivation, and goal setting. The first week of the program focuses on reintegrating and supporting a structured activity schedule that is graded to gradually reintroduce activities from which the individaul may have withdrawn due to pain or illness. During this reintegration phase, whether it be to family, social, or occupational activities, strategies are used to mediate any psychosocial obstacles to progress that may arise, such as fears and beliefs the individual may have about their own abilities. The final week of the program focuses on return to work reintegration. PGAP™ is the first standardized rehabilitation program to target psychosocial risk factors that may impede rehabilitation and return to work progress for an individual. The psychosocial factors addressed by the program are those supported by research to specifically impede return to work and rehabilitation progress. At Seasons, our PGAP practitioners screen individuals for suitability for PGAP, then conduct this 10 week standardized intervention program in order to maximize rehabilitative progress for the individual and to mediate future chronicity of the individual’s condition. The initial screen involves the PGAP practitioner meeting with the individual to assess the suitability and individual needs of the individual for participation in the PGAP program. The program then consists of once per week sessions with the PGAP practitioner and the individual in the individual’s home or community.

PWD / PPMB Assessments

If you wonder if you are likely able to be accepted for PPMB or PWD designations through the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation (provincial income assistance; BCEA), an Employability Assessment will help you decide.  The written report, provided to you within 3 weeks of assessment, can be shared with your doctor and your PWD assessor, to make the completion of their sections easier.  This assessment may be funded by your EPBC (WorkBC) provider. 

Soft Tissue Release (STR)

Soft Tissue Release (STR) is a "dynamic, highly effective technique that has an immediate and powerful effect on muscle and connective tissue. STR is a combination of Myofascial Release, Therapeutic Massage, and Active Assisted Stretching" ( Whether you are living with acute or chronic pain, and were injured in sports, at work, or just over time, STR may benefit you. Our STR certified Kinesiologist provides this service. 


Transferable Skills Analysis

This analysis, based on Canadian data, identifies the skills the individual has acquired throughout their various "occupations" in life, and provides identification of suitable occupations for the individual going forward, through analysis of skills that have been acquired by the individual over their lifetime. A TSA is often performed when an individual is no longer able to work in their previous occupation (e.g. due to injury) or because the position has been eliminated in the individual’s local job market.


Vocational Counselling

Are you still not sure what you're going to do "when you grow up?"  You may have completed a post-secondary degree program, or you may be considering enrolling. In either case, you may be wondering if you're making the right decision. 

Vocational counselling follows Vocational Evaluation, and helps guide your research so that you can make the best possible career and training decision, BEFORE you spend time / money from which you might not see a return.  Our Canadian Certified Vocational Rehabilitation Professional knows the hot jobs, the ones that will coast along for another 20 years, and the ones that are expected to become obsolete shortly. 

Vocational Evaluation

For individuals who can no longer engage in the work they used to do, a Vocational Evaluation, completed by our Canadian Certified Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals, will determine occupations that are suitable [those in which you can work] and realistic [job openings are available in your target communities]. Protocol consists of:


  • Bio-psycho-social Review: this includes an extensive discussion regarding every domain in the individual’s day-to-day life; medical, social, financial, among other domains, as it relates to career planning

  • Vocational Review: this includes an in-depth education, training, and work history

  • Testing for academic achievement, problem solving, personality, interests, aptitudes, work values, computer skills, and others

  • Additional standardized testing, if determined as needed by the bio-psycho-social review, for assessment of general learning ability (intelligence), depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADD-HD, addictions, among others

  • A written report is provided with all evaluation results, as well as a list of suitable and realistic occupations and recommendations for job search or training.

  • *For individuals with physical concerns or disclosed limitation, a Functional Capacity Evaluation is recommended prior to this assessment.
