Recipient of the 2021 REHABILITATION COMPANY OF THE YEAR

Wright Rehab

Wright Rehab

Nominated For: REHABILITATION COMPANY OF THE YEAR

Wright Rehab is proud to be nominated as 2021 Rehabilitation Company of the Year, and we humbly and gratefully accept the nomination on behalf of all our team members, who empower clients to be their best, right now. This year has marked a year of change, growth, and strength for Wright Rehab. We have been mindfully focusing our effort in doing what is [W]right for our clients, our team members, and our company.

In 2021, Wright Rehab renewed our vision: To Empower People to be their Best, [W]right Now.

We know that, through empowerment, everyone wins – the power hierarchy is lessened, and voices are heard. Our leadership team works diligently to share tools, resources, coaching and regular clinical support and supervision to Rehab Therapists, Social Workers, and Attendant Care Specialists based on principles of empowerment that foster connection and an intense sense of community. This is especially important, in times of isolation through the COVID-19 Pandemic. We offer company-wide, virtual connection weekly, through a one-of-a-kind, Professional Empowerment Program (PEP). We celebrate and recognize accomplishments in team members’ professional and personal lives and have a newly appointed Coordinator of Client and Associate Happiness. Our associates are invited to participate in Wright Now and Beyond – where we discuss ongoing strengths and challenges and build a collaborative plan based on their desire for professional development. Aiding our associates to spend their time supporting clients, and less administrative tasks – our own, user-friendly software program captures session details, allows for transparency, simplicity in note keeping, and adheres to privacy and confidentiality.

Our mission: To cultivate the right team to provide compassionate, clinically strong, customized, client centred experiences is being realized through the above programs, as well as our Recognition Program and our Scholarship Program. In our 20th year of providing best in class support to clients impacted by acquired / traumatic injury, and their caregivers / families, we know how incredibly important it is to recognize and show appreciation and support to our valued associates. We truly applaud the incredible and tireless support our team members afford to clients.

A team that is clinically strong, professional, diligent, creative, and client-centered, as well as mindful of the ongoing need for self-care, in turn, displays and works within those strengths when engaging with clients. Our associates support and empower clients within a framework of resilience, focusing on Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely (SMART) goals that are within the clients’ reach.

We are grateful to our clients for trusting us to support them in their rehabilitation journey. We hear repeatedly stories of team members learning from their clients. We know that clients are the experts on themselves, and we are part of that journey, only for a brief of time. Developing rapport and professional relationship based on mutual respect is key.

Thank you to all those who ‘let us in’ to support their journey. As a family-run, rehabilitation company, we realize that we are not all things to all people, yet, to a lot of people, to our clients, we are a lot of things – and we truly are passionate about being part of the journey!

Empowering people to be their best, right now….it’s what we do!

We congratulate OBIA, the PIA, and all nominees for this year’s awards. It is an honour to be nominated alongside these reputable companies, rehabilitation professionals and organizations.

    Wright Rehab continues to provide best in class service that is respectful, creative, empowering and client centred. Since I have started my role as a Rehabilitation Therapist I have grown in my position in a personal and professional way. Our leadership team offers incredible advice and insight on how to support clients to our best capability through weekly PEP talks and Yammer. Its a privilege to work for Wright Rehab and I always enjoy it when I’m asked what company I work for when in the community.

  • Tiana Cortina says:

    When I began working with Wright Rehab I was welcomed into a family-owned business that put clients and their workers well-being above all else. This company renewed my passion in the field and encouraged me to seek continued education to better myself and enhance the care I provide to my clients. Wright Rehab is unparalleled in their commitment to their clients and the education, care, and resources they provide to the team of workers. I thoroughly enjoy being a part of the Wright Rehab team and aim to continue working under their guidance for years to come!

    At Wright Rehab their employees are treated with respect and like part of their family. We are provided with ongoing opportunities to enhance our abilities on a personal and professional level and empowered to make decisions to support our clients in the best ways possible.
    The clients are treated with dignity and respect and Wright Rehab always puts their needs first ensuring that our team can do all that we can to support them in their journey. I am grateful to work for a company that truly has the best interest of clients and associates at heart.

  • Christine Court says:

    I have now worked with Wright Rehab for three years as an MSW. This is an agency that I love working with because of its supportive environment and its strong ethical foundation. All clients are provided with practitioners that best suit their individual needs and if we do not have someone to meet their needs, we refer them to outside practitioners that will. This, to me, is what makes me proud to represent this fabulous agency that TRULY put the needs of their clients first.

  • Brandy Cericola says:

    I have had the pleasure and honor of working with Wright Rehab for a little more than 11 years both professionally and personally.
    In my transition through three law firms and now an insurance company I have remained true to referring my clients and customers to Wright Rehab due to their incredible passion for providing exemplary customer service. Their work with people from all walks of life, all injury levels and complexities make them a rehabilitation company that stands above the rest.
    By far, they are the most professional, courteous, kind, compassionate and knowledgeable group of rehabilitation providers that I have had the privilege of working with in my 20+ year dealings in accident benefits claims.
    I have also had the pleasure of having their support on a personal level from MVA related injuries. My clinicians were so easy to work with, made me feel most comfortable and supported and always showed a tremendous amount of empathy and provided me with so much knowledge regarding what was going on post-accident. They take pride in matching their clinicians with clients to ensure the best fit.
    Thank you Wright Rehab for all you do.

  • Sherry Hall says:

    The Wright Rehab team is very supportive, is very informative, and are wonderful to work with. From coordinators to rehab therapists and social workers, they have always been there to help and support us and to help us deal with the struggles we face with brain injury. I would highly recommend them.

  • Kelly Smale says:

    Wright Rehab consistently provides excellent care and support to clients. They also keep regular communication with the rehab providers and are an important piece of our interdisciplinary teams.

  • Billy Doxtator says:

    I have been with Wright rehab for over two years. I had a MVA accident which resulted in a brain injury. My life changed, I don’t know how I would have dealt without the support of my rehabilitation workers Karen and Michele. Dana is a great person too; she treats me like a person. There are not enough words to express my thanks! So glad they are in my life!

    • Dana Kinchen says:

      As a director, it is important that we connect with all our clients. We are thankful that you have allowed us to support you on your journey Billy!

  • Bernadette Geniole says:

    Wright has looked after my great nephew for some time now. At all times, he is given the best guidance and assistance. All well showing him the outmost respect. He is encouraged to try new things and teach him some independence. He has come a long way under the guidance.

  • Colleen Boyce says:

    Congratulations to Wright Rehab for this nomination and recognition. I have worked with Wright Rehab for many years and they provide excellent care, support, very dedicated and committed to standards of care. The clinical expertise and leadership is outstanding. Wright gives back to the brain injury communities, ORA and goes above and beyond in every regard.

    • Danielle McFadden says:

      Colleen, such kind words! You were one of the first professionals in the industry Barbara introduced me to at a conference, when I was a MSW student, and you marked a great impression on me. We all absolutely are passionate about what we do at [W]right, most importantly, putting clients first, always!

  • Danielle McFadden says:

    I found my way to Wright Rehab as a student completing my Master of Social Work (MSW) practicum through Barbara Ibbitson & Associates. I LOVED every minute of it – absorbing training like a sponge. Though I had thought I wanted to pursue a career in mental health and addictions, my passion for the rehab world grew, as I worked with clients impacted by trauma, physical injury, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, as well as mental health and addiction. What I took most notice of, was Barbara’s passion to support, working collaboratively with other rehab professionals and always doing what is best for the client/couple/family. She continues to mentor all of us today with her many years of clinical expertise.

    When Barbara merged her companies and I was offered a role in Wright Rehab, I jumped at the opportunity. Operated by Barbara, her son, Brent and daughter, Dana, Wright Rehab truly has a small, family-owned business feel (though we make a BIG impact and cover a lot of ground in Ontario!) As a director, I am welcomed as part of the Wright Rehab family, and am able to continue to practice clinical excellence on a more macro level, supporting associates, who, in turn, support and empower clients and families. The core values that we bring to our practice, in terms of giving back to the community, sponsoring events and conferences, and organizations like OBIA are remarkable. We are passionate about providing ongoing training and learning opportunities to our associates and clients; many of us that volunteer in our communities, as well as corporately donating to various charities and hospitals are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to why Wright is the right place for me!

  • Mary Anderson says:

    I have worked with Wright rehab for many years and have always been so impressed with the high level of care provided to my clients. The clinical knowledge of their staff, compassion, and commitment is clearly evident when providing services to clients. It is always a pleasure working with you. Congratulations on your nomination!

    • Dana Kinchen says:

      Thank you Mary for your kind words- always a pleasure for our team to support your clients on their rehab journey.

  • Dana Kinchen says:

    I was embraced by the Wright Rehab Family over 7 years ago. I instantly knew that I wanted to build roots into an organization that was passionate about helping people on their journey through recovery. I was gifted an opportunity to be mentored by a family (Barb, Brent & Dana) whose company values aligned with my core values- strong teamwork, passion for helping, high standards for doing what is right, giving back to communities through sponsorship and volunteering, recognition and opportunities for growth and development.

    I am proud to be a part of a rehabilitation community that is focussed on partnership and collaboration to ensure the highest standards of care is provided daily to our brain injured clients. It is an honour to be a recipient this year- together, we all make a difference.

  • Pam Griffiths says:

    I’ve had the honour of working with Wright Rehab’s leadership team over the past year. I’ve experienced firsthand a passionate, competent team committed to living their mission, vision and values.

    Their dedication and unwavering commitment to the growth and development of the people they serve, is infused in who they are.

    Congratulations on this well deserved nomination!

    This leading edge company is breaking new ground and is one to watch out for!
