WellQor Behavioral Health Launches Telehealth Services for Seniors
Melville, NY – April 1, 2020 – WellQor, the leader in behavioral healthcare for older adults, recently announced the launch of nationwide telehealth services covered by Medicare. Clients can now conduct sessions with WellQor’s Licensed Psychologists and Clinical Social Workers who are trained experts in the needs of the seniors – all from the comfort of their home.
Older adults often face extremely stressful events including the death of a loved one, loss of independence, and declining physical abilities that necessitate attention from mental health professionals. The Center for Disease Control estimates that more than 20% of people aged 55 years or older experience some type of mental health concern. Without proper care, seniors are at risk for heightened anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and a number of other serious issues.
Recent events have exacerbated these issues. State and local stay-at-home orders have put many older adults in a position of complete social isolation as feelings of fear and anxiety increase and remain unmitigated. Older adults who rely on friends, families, churches, and caregivers for support have been left to navigate the new normal independently. Seniors report feeling lonely and anxious as they miss out on time with their loved ones and fear for their own safety.
Luckily, getting help for your loved ones has never been easier as WellQor’s telehealth services are now available nationwide. Through these services, family members can arrange online consultations with mental health professionals to set up counseling appointments, receive important updates, and get peace of mind knowing that their loved one is receiving the best possible emotional, cognitive, relational and behavioral care available. Meanwhile, clients can enjoy the benefits of quality care such as better relationships with loved ones, fewer hospital visits, and an overall improvement to quality of life.

WellQor provides comprehensive emotional and cognitive care programs for the older adult. Our trained and licensed professionals develop long term relationships with individuals, their families, and their care team-helping clients cope with issues related to the aging process.
