Pediatric / Academic Program
Nothing prepares you for being seriously injured in a car accident and having to relearn or find new ways to do everyday things – like managing your self-care and household chores, getting around, communicating effectively and successfully returning to caregiving, work, academic and leisure activities.
As one of the largest private community rehabilitation companies in Ontario, NRS is here to help – through every stage of your recovery.
Quick Response Program (QRP)
Because children are being discharged from hospital earlier than ever before, we have developed the Quick Response Program (QRP)
- It is designed to get in place the equipment, therapy and supports your child urgently needs to safely go home. You can expect that:
- within 1 or 2 days, your QRP coordinator (who may be a Case Manager, Occupational Therapist or a Social Worker) will contact you and the hospital to identify your child’s needs
- within 2 or 3 days, urgent equipment and services will be delivered to your home. Your QRP coordinator will also work with you and your hospital team to:
- develop a comprehensive discharge plan, including what services and supports your child will need in his or her ongoing recovery
- help you choose the best providers
- handle the necessary reporting and funding approvals from your insurer.
Meeting your child’s long-term needs
Our caring professionals have extensive experience in the treatment of children and adolescents with brain and spinal cord injuries, orthopaedic injuries, amputations, burns and other complex injuries.
They will educate you and your family about your child’s condition, offer the most up to date treatment options and help you make informed decisions.
You and your child will be the center of the team – it is your unique goals and priorities that will drive our program! With your consent, our professionals will also maintain open communication with any other individuals who are involved in your child’s recovery – this is likely to include doctors, teachers, employers, lawyers, funding sources and legal representatives.
Finally, NRS is committed to the provision of culturally sensitive programming and is pleased to offer services in a number of languages.
For over 30 years, NRS has provided a full range of rehabilitation services to children and youth with serious injuries. We have helped thousands of young people to successfully rebuild their lives. Our secret? Local teams of compassionate and competent professionals who, inspired by the courage of kids and their families, know that there is a world of possibilities.
