As a result of these uncertain times, increased stress levels are taking a toll on everyone’s health and wellness. With additional restrictive measures being put into place, many people are naturally cautious about venturing out. But, when it comes to supporting your personal health, there are so many alternatives to consider without compromising your safety.
In the 21st century, technology continues to lead the charge in finding new ways to live efficiently and safely. Under normal circumstances, our society has enjoyed the benefits of connecting with others in real time online. During this historic pandemic it has become the primary way to conduct meetings, attend classes and stay connected with loved ones. Even within the healthcare industry, many practitioners have switched to virtual appointments to reduce the risk of infection. However, some appointments still have to be conducted in person at some point. With so many people working from home in make-shift offices, work related strains are on the rise. As we continue through another phase of this pandemic, additional restrictions will naturally result in many people feeling even more apprehensive about making physical contact. But, it is important to maintain your health especially with the additional stress of this unpredictable time.
Even during a pandemic there are safe options to access healthcare services at home.
Taking advantage of mobile healthcare services in your home is the best way to maintain a healthy lifestyle while remaining safe. Since you are in control of your personal environment, it is much more logical to have healthcare practitioners come to you. So much seems to be out of our immediate control as this pandemic progresses, but you can take charge of your health at home.
Consider these additional benefits to mobile healthcare at home:
Home vs Clinic
One practitioner coming to your home is more practical than being treated in the same clinic room as numerous patients. The risk of exposure is high when you have to interact with additional people, including: receptionists, various staff members and other patients and their family members visiting a clinic.
If your children are learning from home or childcare centres are closed, finding a
babysitter can hinder your ability to get to your appointment. Also, many clinics only allow one person per family inside which creates a challenging child care dilemma.
Getting to a clinic can be problematic if you don’t have your own car. There is an additional risk of exposure on public transportation or taxi services. Various healthcare practitioners such as physiotherapists, massage therapists, chiropodists and podiatrists can safely come to your home for an appointment.
As the situation continues to evolve, it may be difficult to predict if the additional restrictions will include healthcare clinics. Accessing mobile healthcare services at home is a proactive approach to supporting your well being during uncertain times. To ensure your needs are fully met, it’s important to go beyond an initial virtual appointment. For example, maintaining a regular schedule for massage therapy at home can counteract the physical effects of increased stress. Having a chiropodist come to your home to assess your aching feet or provide plantar fasciitis treatments can be invaluable. Physiotherapists are also making house visits to effectively treat work-related strain and other mobility issues. Your home is the best place for you to get the services you need to maintain your health and wellness.
