Experiencing an illness or injury can profoundly impact an individual, imposing limitations on their productivity. The intense discomfort, pain, and immune challenges associated with illness and injury can significantly impede one’s ability to accomplish tasks.

Life can take an unexpected turn when we are in good health and suddenly receive a diagnosis that alters our existence. This is an inherent part of being human, as it can happen to anyone.

If you are dealing with illness or injury and require assistance in finding employment or need support to remain or resume working, we are here to provide help.

What are the benefits?

However, work has its own benefits for our mental health:

Feeling Purposeful and Motivated: Having a job can give us a sense of meaning and motivation.
Creating a Daily Routine: Work helps us establish a structured daily schedule, which can improve our overall well-being and stability.
Developing an Identity Outside the Illness/injury: Having a job allows us to focus on our skills, talents, and interests.
Connecting with Others: Being employed gives us the chance to interact with coworkers, clients, and a wider professional network, helping us feel connected and part of a community.
Financial Security: Work provides us with income, which is important for financial stability and independence, especially when dealing with the expenses of a chronic illness.
