Facing a challenge like an illness, injury, or waiting for a diagnosis can take a toll on how you manage your life. New obstacles constantly arise, from the symptoms and healthcare itself, to your emotional and psychological well being, as well as figuring out new strategies for making your way through day-to-day activities.
Heather came to Share Lawyers when she was denied long term benefits after the long process of finding a diagnosis for her rare heart disease. It was an emotional feat to cope with her illness while waiting to get a definite medical diagnosis.
After Her Clam Was Settled, She Still Needed Disability Resources
After Heather’s case was settled by Share Lawyers, Heather still needed assistance with some activities.
Lifting heavy objects and climbing stairs often left her breathless and totally exhausted. Small chores, like grocery shopping, seemed monumental - but that didn’t get Heather down. She found unique ways to solve her problem.
Heather Used The Internet To Find Various Services
For groceries and other personal shopping errands, Heather used an internet search to help her find various services in her hometown of Calgary. She could order the items she needed either online or over the phone. These items were delivered directly to her home.
Sometimes she also felt too tired and sick to make a healthy meal for herself, and didn’t want to rely on unhealthy take-out food. She was able to find services which prepared either frozen or fresh healthy meals and delivered them right to her door. This option was much more affordable and healthy than standard delivery.
When she was up for it, she even felt like she could entertain friends and family without the stress of meal prep. It felt great to be able to do this, as she could sometimes feel too much like the “patient”.
Heather Could Focus On Her Health
Without the stress of shopping and running errands, Heather was able to focus on her health. Finding resources to take away the physical strain of running errands - which left her feeling tired and sick - she could ease that stress and go at her own pace, without sacrificing the things she needed.
If you are dealing with an illness or long-term disability, it’s important to remember that you are allowed - and every much need - to take advantage of the resources available to you to help you on your journey.

A note from our long term disability lawyers
Taking a medical leave from work is not an easy decision to make. Concerns about providing for yourself and your family and keeping your job may cause you to want to push through your pain, but this won’t make your problems go away. Stopping work is often the smartest decision for your long term health and well-being, and your disability benefits are there to provide you with financial support until you can return to work.
If you have made the tough decision to stop working and apply for your short term disability or long term disability benefits, you may feel overwhelmed by the process and have questions that your employer and your insurance company are not able or willing to answer. Share is There to see you through and answer your questions.
Our Disability law firm knows what you have been going through
We understand that things have not been easy for you over the last little while. Your health has been suffering, you are unable to work, and now your insurance company, who was supposed to be there in your time of need, has decided they will not pay your disability benefits or respect your disability claim. These benefits exist to provide you with the financial support you need so that you can focus on your health and rebuilding your life. It is unfortunate that your insurance company has not lived up to its promise. If your disability claim has been denied, we will fight to get you the benefits you are entitled to. Our disability lawyers have helped thousands of Canadians get their long term disability benefits over the past 35 years, and we can help you too.
