Activity coaching is a reactivation program to help a worker:

  • Increase their quality of life.
  • Resume activities that once gave their life a sense of meaning and purpose.
  • Recover from an injury or illness.
  • Return to work.

Activity coaches use the Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP®) to help an individual regain control of their life and increase participation in daily activities.

Activity coaches:

  • Meet in person or over the phone.
  • Meet weekly for an hour for up to 10 weeks.
  • Work with the individual on their personal goals.
  • Help the individual transition back to work and/or return to meaningful activities.

Workers may benefit from this service when they:

  • Have a longer than expected recovery time (more than 4 weeks after work injury).
  • Have not improved with early interventions.
  • Are not working or not working usual hours.
  • Their schedule allows enough time to participate.
