Online Therapy for Medicare
The stress of life, and now of Covid-19 has made it more difficult for clients to safely come into the office. However, even before this time I knew that it was a matter of time that Medicare would begin to make it easier for my clients to meet with me online. So many of my clients have obstacles that make getting to the office a challenge at times, either because they are sick, have had an operation, or even have weather challenge (Snow, etc).
My older clients often have a hard time trying new things, especially technology.
Sometimes they have told me they are afraid it won’t be the same if they talk via the Phone, FaceTime or Video.
However, the comments I had (even from a 90-year- old who was very doubtful) are the most important thing that continues to help her is CONNECTION. She continues feel that she is heard, she can talk about what is important, and after a while, she forgets that is “just the phone.”
I usually walk my clients through the process and together we find which method might be better that day. Sometimes we just have the picture in Zoom and we are still on the phone as well. We do not have to be perfect!!!!
