Like you, we believe that supporting our Veterans in a cause to get behind! In order to offer them the best support possible, we need your help!
Donating your time or money to Partners for Telehealth Solutions means you desire to help Veterans financially, with employment, with education, with wellness, or any number of challenging areas of life they face after returning home from service. While our focus is on the health and wellness of our veterans, we know that an improvement in their well-being increases their education and employment prospects.
With approximately 1.64 million U.S. troops deployed since late 2001 in Afghanistan and Iraq, there has been a steady flow of soldiers returning home and returning to civilian life. They face many challenges as they adjust and many find themselves vast distances away from the military healthcare they are entitled to.
Some soldiers struggle with lost limbs as a result of overseas combat injuries. But some wounds are invisible.
One of these “invisible” wounds is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Another “invisible wound” is traumatic brain injury (TBI). Alarmingly, these conditions can be just as debilitating as losing as limb. What’s worse, they may even end in veteran suicide, if left unchecked.
For Veterans who have a health problem like diabetes, chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, getting treatment can be complex and inconvenient.
For some, especially older Veterans, conditions like these can make it difficult for them to remain living independently in their own home and make it necessary for them to go into a nursing home where their symptoms and vital signs can be checked frequently. Having this information means physicians and nurses can change medications or other treatments and prevent serious health problems from developing.
Fortunately, telehealth resources can connect a veteran to a VA hospital or medical expert directly from home.
Our goal is to increase Veteran awareness of these resources and to make them more accessible to Veterans across the country. Additionally, we are striving to partner with the VA, local hospitals, and clinics to further develop their telehealth services, thereby increasing Veteran options.
Your time or money can help us achieve these goals and support our Veterans in need!
