Guide Dogs SA/NT remain committed to ensuring our clients receive the best possible support and care during these unprecedented times.
To protect the health and wellbeing of clients and staff, we are using ‘Telehealth’ to safely deliver services, and enable our clients to continue to achieve their goals using technology.
Telehealth is the distribution of health-related services and information via electronic communication ‘at a distance’. It is an effective way to continue to support clients while following the health advice of the Australian Government during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The majority of our services can be adapted to Telehealth, which also provides clients with the ease and convenience of receiving services in their own home. The methods of communication may include telephone-based appointments, video conferencing using Skype and/or FaceTime and Email/SMS.
As always, we will work with our clients to determine which technology will be best for them, their program and their individual goals.
