Benefits of Virtual Health Care

Did you know that Revive Wellness has been doing virtual video appointments with our Registered Dietitians and Registered Psychologist since last summer and phone appointments for many years?

With everything that has happened with COVID-19 and the inability to do appointments in person we were ready to be here to help you!

What are the benefits of virtual care?

  • Saves time – this eliminates the need for commuting, travelling or taking time from other activities to get to an appointment. A virtual appointment can easily be added in the middle of the day on a break or lunch hour.
  • Removes potential obstacles – such as rescheduling appointments due to bad weather or traffic, or being held up somewhere else.
  • Expands geographical horizons – virtual care opens so many opportunities for people living in rural communities who may not have certain services in their area.
  • Provides more options for people whose work schedules often don’t allow easy access to appointments such as shift workers, people who are onsite for work or people who travel for work.
  • Includes the comfort of having care in your home – for people with kids, this can remove the hassle of dragging them to appointments or finding childcare while you have your appointment.

 

We do know that right now with everything going virtual it is normal to be reluctant and hesitant.  And yes, health care is looking different right now, but it is not a reason to stop checking in with your health team or from seeking help from a health care professional.

Here is what we can promise:

  • Virtual care may feel foreign and uncomfortable at first, but we will help you navigate the technology and set your mind at ease.
  • Our passion to help and our ability to coach/counsel you virtually are the same.
  • We have the knowledge and expertise to manage all your health concerns and needs as well as work with you on sustainable behaviour change.
  • Client confidentiality and privacy remain a top priority to us. We use software that meets government guidelines for privacy and security. We conduct an annual review and audit of our practices with an external third party to ensure we are up to date and compliant.
  • We have created a digital wellness tool to complement your appointments called My Viva Plan®! It includes your meal plans, exercise programs, handouts, recipes as well as the ability to manage your stress through daily reflections at your fingertips, 24/7 hours a day.

 

You matter and your health is important- we are here to help!

Right now, we are offering a FREE 15-minute phone consult with our awesome Registered Dietitians to go over what your concerns are, how we can help and make sure you are set up in our secure program.
