Working and professional life
It may strike you as strange that we will ask you during your initial rehabilitation what your plans are for continuing to work. In fact, the path back to work is an important part of the individual rehabilitation process, as well as of your personal well-being. Work is healthy and helps a person to feel alive and like a valuable member of society.
Considering this early on is fundamental – including involving your existing employer, social security providers and private insurers. Together with ParaWork, a service offered by the Swiss Paraplegic Group, we will sit down with you to explore all the possible options for returning to work.
In addition to alternative working models (home office, part-time), it is possible that the physical restrictions may prevent you from doing the job that you used to do. During the course of a professional work assessment, we will focus on your skills and interests. We will discuss this with you and perform diagnostic tests. You will be amazed to discover the many options that are available to you. Take the chance to embark upon an exciting new career.
Based on our findings, we will devise support measures that are geared to you, we will involve our shared networks and support you during retraining, as well as in the search for a suitable job or training opportunity. During your rehabilitation, take advantage of a number of different training opportunities to improve your chances of employment and to stay mentally “fit”.
We will be only too glad to get you back on a career path and into the swing of life. Our mission is to provide you with prospects for employment and the tools to reach your goals.
