– Neurologist Dr. Deborah Boland Answers Call for Home Health Care –
When Americans started calling for the return of doctor house-calls during the COVID-19 pandemic, one Florida neurologist stood ready with a rapid response for home health care.
Dr. Deborah Boland, founder of Be Mobile Neurology, has spent years expanding patient access to mobile medical care and at-home neurological visits around the Greater Tampa Bay area. As a licensed Neurologist and one of few local Movement Disorder Specialists, Dr. Boland paved the way in delivering in-home neurological care across Tampa, St. Petersburg, Bradenton, Sarasota, and surrounding regions.
In recent months, Dr. Boland has witnessed an increase in in-home appointment requests and a virtual demand for extending her telemedicine and telehealth services far beyond Florida.
“The immediacy and flexibility of home visits and telehealth are meeting patient needs during this healthcare crisis,” said Dr. Boland. “Be Mobile Neurology satisfies safety demands, while also promoting care access by removing barriers due to distance, mobility, disability, anxiety, or impairments.”
Treating Neurological Conditions and Neurodegenerative Diseases
At-home healthcare care and telehealth services offer affordable, convenient, and focused care for many types of neurological conditions. Plus, there are exponential benefits for patients with neurodegenerative disease processes, such as Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, and dementia.
For example, there are no office distractions and no time wasted in waiting rooms. This is beneficial for those uncomfortable leaving their home setting and those prone to anxiety issues or outbursts. Home visits are more productive because patients receive individualized care in a calm setting.
“Healthcare systems are evolving, and top medical experts are finally addressing the limitations and safety concerns in traditional medical settings,” said Dr. Boland. “Through innovation and portable technologies, patients are receiving state-of-the-art neurological care in the comforts of their home.”
Raising Awareness for World Alzheimer’s Month this September
In recognition of World Alzheimer’s Month, an international event to address the challenges of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, Dr. Boland urges patients and caregivers to consider the modern conveniences of telemedicine, video consults, or in-home medical care.
With Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, early identification is critical. Cognitive evaluations, medication management, treatments, and neuro consults are a simple phone call away for mitigating risks, delaying progression, and improving patient outcomes.
