If you have sustained injuries from a transport accident and you require the expertise of a case manager, Colbrow Care can guide and support the delivery of a coordinated approach.

Often, the first point of contact with a care service provider such as us happens when you are ready to be discharged from the hospital back home. Transition planning is a process that sees you leaving the secure environment of the hospital or rehabilitation centre to your home in the community. In collaboration with the hospital or rehabilitation facility, you, and your healthcare team, a comprehensive plan will be created to prepare you for the transition home and beyond. The purpose of transition planning is to ensure a smooth transition to home life, that empowers you to embark on the next phase of your recovery.

Once you are settled at home, we assist you in re-establishing your role within your community, at home, in school, at work, and in leisure activities. Being involved and injured in a transport accident puts life on hold. Regardless of age or occupation, your role in all parts of your life will most probably change. A well-documented component of a successful recovery is the reconnection with community, family, friends, employment, and education. Getting back to some semblance of your old life is good for your mental health and wellbeing.

A component of our comprehensive case management services incorporates a plan that identifies possible or anticipated crisis events and the interventions required to manage such events. These events may include a breakdown in accommodation, recidivism, alcohol, and other drug relapses. The contingency plan will include key points of contact such as the police and healthcare support team.

It is essential that you develop self-management skills and strategies to cope with your life going forward. As your care service provider, we can only do so much in preparing you for life post-transport injury.

You will need to be resilient, capable of self-advocacy, and proactive in maintaining the community connections we helped you re-establish.
