Our Grand Canyon state provides us with vast expanses of beautiful outdoor scenery. However, the gorgeous drives also mean that quality healthcare may be miles away. Here at Gagne Behavioral Health Care, we provide Arizona seniors with premium telepsychiatry healthcare regardless of where they live. Whether it is distance, transportation, or mobility issues keeping you from receiving good healthcare, we can bring the healthcare that you need right into your home.
Arizona Telepsychiatry has incorporated a technologically advanced care concept through our telemedicine services. Ideal for seniors who live in rural areas, assisted living communities, who are unable to travel, or who don’t have the time to wait in a medical center, Arizona Telemedicine allows us to give everyone the opportunity to receive quality evidence-based health care.
Mental health affects all aspects of a person’s life. Addressing mental health concerns is our primary focus at Gagne Behavioral Health. Unfortunately, there are only 12 in-person psychiatry professionals to every 100,000 Arizona residents. This shortage of psychiatric professionals within the state of Arizona reflects the need to find new ways of reaching those who don’t have easy access to a health professional.
The introduction of Arizona telepsychiatry into the state’s healthcare system provides new opportunities for people to receive consistent and convenient healthcare.
Seniors over the age of 60 make up 14% of Arizona’s population and 24% of those seniors are living alone. Seniors are one of the most vulnerable populations when it comes to mental health. Throughout Arizona, telepsychiatry will bring mental health care to all areas of the state, especially to our senior population.
Mental health is an important component of overall good health. Providing psychiatric care to seniors can improve their quality of life. The services we provide for seniors include Alzheimer’s and dementia treatments such as medications and CBD. We also include care for depression, anxiety, and therapies for memory loss in older adults.
Senior patients require quality mental health care as they age, because the mind affects how the body functions. Memory loss in seniors and depression in older adults can compromise life satisfaction. At Gagne Behavioral Health Care, we recognize how important our senior population is and we aim to help them through telemedicine. Arizona’s senior population can receive mental health care right in their own homes through telepsychiatry.
Rural and remote areas are also affected by a lack of access to healthcare. Gagne Behavioral Health Care seeks to assist in revitalizing these areas by providing quality mental health care that is accessible anywhere in Arizona.
Through our video teleconference technology, we can reach out to patients anywhere and provide evidence based assessments, therapies, patient education, and medication management. Video teleconference brings our licensed mental health professionals to patients at the press of a button.
The availability of video-based telepsychiatry benefits patients in a number of ways. Telepsychiatry reduces the need for costly and time consuming trips to the ER or physician’s offices. Telepsychiatry also guarantees quick mental health care for senior patients, ensuring safety and quick interventions for any situation.
Video teleconferencing services also helps to make psychiatry and mental health visits more affordable, especially for those on a fixed income. Through telemedicine in Arizona we hope to meet the needs of the senior residents throughout the state.
