Describing The Importance Of Independence

Posted by

I'm free! senior man get up from wheelchair and throw away his walking caneThere’s a reason that our company is named Independence Incorporated. It wasn’t a name that we just settled on because we thought it sounded “official” or “prestigious”. And it also wasn’t a decision we fell upon because of its cool use of alliteration. At Independence Incorporated, we are firm believers in everyone’s right to be independent. And being united in this belief is what really helps to make our company name so apt.

Take a look at Merriam-Webster’s definition of “Independence”: “Not dependent: as 1) : not requiring or relying on something else : not contingent (2) : not requiring or relying on others (as for care or livelihood)”. Now take a look at Merriam-Webster’s definition of “Incorporate”: “To unite or work into something already existent so as to form an indistinguishable whole: to blend or combine thoroughly: to give material form; to embody.”

The way we see it, our work incorporates the appropriate programs and services that promote statuses of independence among the clients that we serve. Our company’s specialty is vocational rehabilitation. We provide a long list of helpful services that focus on enhancing the overall independence of our clients at both their homes and workplaces. In many cases, we assist those with making transitions from states of illness or injury to comfortable returns to the workforce.

As a result, disability management is a major component to the help that we provide. At Independence Incorporated, we are committed to fully implementing the human approach to all that we do. And that’s because we’re focused on helping people. There is an emotional side to rehabilitation that is as important – sometimes more so – than the physical rehabilitation that often requires assistance.

We are also sensitive to the fact that many of our clients are faced with limited financial resources. Again, considering the emotional side of every client’s situation allows us to manage rehabilitation in ways that are uniquely considerate. We’re happy to report that our services benefit a wide range of people. They include clients, referral sources, family physicians and treatment providers.

Clients. Naturally, our clients are very important to us. We understand that during their time periods of illness or injury, it is imperative that they focus on improving their health. At Independence Incorporated, we make it our duty to assist with this process in the most helpful and attentive manners possible. Our clients greatly benefit from the individualized attention that they each receive.

Referral Sources. We also service insurance companies and employers. Naturally, they each have obligations that they are contractually liable for. Under their contractual agreements, they are required to provide medical and vocational rehabilitation services to their policy holders and employees during their times of need. Our involvement allows for appropriate services to be offered in order to enhance recovery rates and maximize states of independence.

Family Physicians and Treatment Providers. We also must ensure that we are openly communicating with the family physicians and treatment providers that are involved with our clients. With the permission of our clients, we provide progress reports to their doctors and other health care professionals who are involved in the rehabilitation processes. It’s all about promoting their independence together!
