COVID-19 is rapidly spreading across the globe, and as cases rise, most people are being urged to follow social distancing guidelines and remain at home as much as possible.
Although social distancing is helping slow down the spread of COVID-19, it can be stressful, and it’s not uncommon to experience fear and anxiety about you and your family’s health.
Our team at Care& Family Health wants to help you get through this outbreak. We share ways to manage stress, fear, and anxiety until COVID-19 starts slowing down.
Telemedicine can help you manage fear and anxiety.
People often experience fear and anxiety when outbreaks like COVID-19 sweep the globe. While the thought of ongoing social distancing --and not knowing what comes next-- is troubling for any person, it can really impact those with mental health illnesses.
If you manage an anxiety disorder or other mental health illnesses, the uncertainty of an outbreak in your community can cause overwhelming fear and worry.
But, with Care& Family Health’s app, you can schedule a telehealth consult with a Nurse Practitioner (NP) and get treatment and advice for your anxiety without ever leaving home.
Even if you don’t have a mental illness, the COVID-19 outbreak can make anyone feel anxious and uncertain. But quietly dealing with anxiety only makes it worse. That’s why we encourage you to set up a mental health consult via telehealth, regardless of your current mental health.
More importantly, telemedicine provides contact-less care keeping you and your loved ones healthy while remaining at a safe social distance.
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, many people are hesitant to have an in-clinic health check-up.
When outbreaks like this occur, virtual care is one of the keys to slowing the spread of the virus. Virtual care can limit your exposure to the virus while still allowing you to get the treatment you need.
Care& Family Health’s app is built around virtual care and access, we want to put your health back in your control.
With telehealth, you can speak to an NP about your symptoms and get appropriate advice on what to do next. Your NP can determine if your symptoms warrant a trip to the ER to minimize your potential COVID-19 exposure.
Our app provides seamless integration of your assessment, plan of care, and accompanying documents including lab requisitions and prescriptions.
During the outbreak, this comprehensive access to your health record gives interdisciplinary healthcare providers such as your family practitioner or specialists the ability to provide efficient continuative care.
