MELVILLE, N.Y., March 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- WellQor, a behavioral health company that partners with leading senior living communities to provide comprehensive emotional and cognitive care programs for the entire community, has announced the launch of support programs for Senior Living Communities, including video and telephone consultation, to assist caregivers and staff members with communication to SLC residents during isolation.
Crisis management in this new era has inspired veterans of crisis response to act with innovative solutions. Candace Williams, the Director of Clinician Development at WellQor, is at the forefront of crisis management amid the COVID-19 outbreak. She is a licensed clinical social worker, who gained widespread praise for her work leading the Disaster Welfare Inquiry Center, a New York-based hotline providing crisis support to the friends and family of the victims of the 9-11 terror attacks. She was given the "Unsung Heroes Award" for her post 9-11 work, and she's set to become an unsung hero once again, as she's developed a suite of unique services through WellQor to help senior living communities deal with the COVID-19 outbreak.
Many providers are scrambling to adapt, but WellQor already has an extensive network of licensed professionals trained specifically in active, supportive, short-term crisis management. These clinicians are mobilizing to administer specific crisis interventions aimed at reaffirming a lost sense of security amongst residents. This involves professional psycho-education, and the re-establishment of social support systems for isolated communities. Residents are reassured of their physical health, and perceptions of safety are reconceived in order to provide a healthy and stable living environment.
WellQor partners with leading senior living communities to provide comprehensive emotional and cognitive care programs for the entire community. Our trained licensed professionals work on-site at each location, developing long-term relationships with individual residents, their families, and staff.
