Community Therapists is pleased to announce the launch of our Post COVID-19 Treatment Program (PCTP). The PCTP is Community Therapists’ response to the needs of clients who have recovered from their COVID-19 illness but continue to experience functional limitations which impact their daily functioning, sometimes referred to as Long COVID.
This community-based program combines the efforts of our Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Kinesiologists working in close collaboration with community health partners including the client’s physician and specialists. Recent evidence indicates approximately 80% of clients who have recovered from COVID-19 continue to experience persistent symptoms including fatigue, cognitive limitations, shortness of breath, weakness and activity intolerance. Our program includes supervised exercise when appropriate and a range of self management strategies which target improvement in home, community and work activities depending on the client’s unique circumstances. For more information, please contact 604-681-9293 to speak with a service coordinator.
