Vision Loss Rehabilitation Northwest Territories relies on you to refer your patients to us at the appropriate time in their experience of vision loss.
In most cases, referrals are recommended as soon as a patient has lost enough vision to interfere with their confidence and ability to complete everyday tasks, regardless of whether a course of treatment has been completed. It is also at your discretion to refer a patient to us earlier in the vision loss process if you believe it will be helpful.
Referrals can be made using our online form. By using this form, you are helping connect your patient to our services quickly, and providing our certified specialists with all the information they need to create a personalized rehabilitation plan for your patient.
Once you refer a patient to us, our certified specialists will reach out to them directly within 10 business days. We will work with them to assess their needs and goals, and develop a personalized rehabilitation plan.
This plan may include a range of services, depending on the patient’s individual needs and goals. Services may be delivered over a series of appointments in your patient's home or community, their workplace, or at our Yellowknife office.
Vision Loss Rehabilitation Northwest Territories will follow up to update you on what rehabilitation services your patient is receiving.
