Lindsay Rehabilitation & Lindsay Physiotherapy Services are committed to excellence in serving all clients including people with disabilities.
Feedback Process & Accommodation Requests
The clinic will consider all requests for accommodation. Clients and families can contact the organization in writing, by phone, email or simply drop in.
Annual clinic inspections take place throughout the year. This is an opportunity to identify issues, and for staff to bring forward their concerns.
All staff have an opportunity to raise any concerns or special needs that they may identify.
All requests are reviewed by the organization’s team of Leaders in a timely way to determine if remedial actions are reasonable and appropriate. The team will use criteria including: resources required, achievable given current location and environment etc. If not readily achievable the team will indicate whether it may be achievable in the future or not.
For accommodations that cannot be made the organization will assist clients to find other resources that are accessible given their needs.
We will ensure that our staff are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by clients with disabilities while accessing our services.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them into treatment areas if they desire.
Notice of temporary disruption
In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to services or facilities for customers with disabilities, we will notify customers promptly. This clearly posted notice will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated length of time, and a description of alternative facilities or services, if available.
We will provide training to employees, volunteers and others who deal with the public or other third parties on our behalf. This training will be provided to staff on employment.

Lindsay Rehabilitation welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process. During the hiring process, job applicants when selected for an interview will be informed that accommodation will be provided. If an applicant or successful candidate requests an accommodation, their needs will be discussed with them.
