How would you feel if the clients do not get 100 percent better?

2 Answers

I would expect it but be hopeful for some room for improvement.

The expectation of vocational rehabilitation is not for the clients to get 100% better, our job is to be there to pick up the percentage of the person and help them to find a place in society to bounce back into their rhythm. I believe all people will be 100 percent better at their own time. Clients may leave my care at a given time, but that does not mean the person is done healing. I think as long as people know that, hope will always be in their equation. Less
