The plaintiff is entitled to compensation for the cost of future care based on what is reasonably necessary to restore him to his pre-Accident condition to the extent possible. When full restoration is not possible, the court must strive to ensure full compensation through the provision of adequate future care. The award is to be based on what is reasonably necessary on the medical evidence to preserve and promote the plaintiff’s mental and physical health: Gignac v.

The test for determining the appropriate award under the heading of cost of future care is an objective one based on medical evidence.
