Why do people choose Telehealth?
Telehealth provides a combination of a treatment and consultative model including resources to address urgent needs. Parents are supported and equipped to manage their child’s needs better from their own home without having to travel into clinic.
Research has shown that Telehealth can be just as effective as face to face services. We are experienced in delivering successful Telehealth sessions due to the COVID lockdowns and now have many client who opt for Telehealth sessions rather than in-clinic appointments to enjoy the flexibilities that this service delivery method offers.
How can Telehealth benefit you?
By providing Telehealth services to rural and remote areas we are making quality OT services accessible to you. You are able to get immediate help for urgent needs as well as ongoing support.
There are many benefits that Telehealth can offer, including opportunities to interact with your child in their normal environment, with their own toys and comforts. For some kids, this might be a less stressful experience than coming into our clinics, There is no need to cancel due to mild sickness so last minute cancellation fees can be avoided and traffic/transport issues are not a consideration.
