Healios provides family psychoeducation which includes skills training and support to caregivers through highly trained healthcare providers. For ease of access, the caregiver has their sessions with the Healios practitioner via user-friendly video conferencing.
We work with the caregiver, and if possible, with their loved one's treatment team, to re-establish or improve those lines of communication that are necessary to optimize treatment success and recovery.
