Benefits of Telehealth for Behavioral Health Services
Telepsychiatry & teletherapy provides the patient with benefits that may lead to bette care. We understand it can be difficult to take time off from your busy schedule to come to our office. This form of treatment can eliminate your commute time and lead to less stress, especially when you are scheduled to see your psychiatrist/therapist often. For patients who are usually seen in the office but are sick or traveling, this form of treatment allows you to still keep your appointment without interrupting your care.

The time immediately following release from the hospital (also known as the postoperative period) is a critical phase of the recovery process. Studies show a lack of proper care and support after a surgery can lead to slower recuperation. In fact, there is a substantial risk of readmission due to serious complications, such as infection, blood clots, or reopening an incision. This is why it is important to have a thorough postoperative care plan in place before transitioning home.
Postoperative Care Services
Heroes For Home Care caregivers make our clients’ transitions from hospital to home as seamless, safe, and positive as possible. Our caregivers with assistance from our Nurses provide the following postoperative care services:
Having one of our caregivers assist with home care responsibilities provides untold peace of mind for both the client and their loved ones. We actively work with our clients and their families to create a postoperative care strategy that fits everyone’s specific needs.

Alternatively, our caregivers can spend significantly more time with the clients to ensure that every need is met. Our extensive years of post-surgery home care experience prepares us to expertly address every question or concern.
