56-year-old Coral was born in Walgett, New South Wales and has spent most of her life in opal mining town, Lightning Ridge, New South Wales.
Living in a small town can present challenges in terms of access to healthcare, which Coral started to notice more in recent years.
After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and hypertension two years ago, Coral became frustrated with the inconsistency of health care professionals in her town. “Doctors often come and go in this town, which can make it difficult to take control of your health."
After recently discovering the Telehealth Home Monitoring service provided by LiveBetter, Coral says it’s allowed her to make better health decisions, giving her greater confidence with self-care. Telehealth allows Coral to track her blood pressure and crucial observations at home, helping her to monitor her diabetes and stay in control.
“Having a nurse to talk to also helps hugely. I feel like I can talk about anything – it’s like having a doctor there for you constantly."
54-year-old Shelley is chronically ill and has been using LiveBetter’s Telehealth service for some time. She said it has given her more control over her own health and wellbeing.
“My life has definitely improved. Before I was crook, down and overweight. Now I am feeling better and have a more positive outlook.”
“I can now read my body better and pick up problems more easily without running off to the doctor all the time. I can ring the Telehealth Team and knowing they are there is a big relief.”
According to Shelley anyone who is worried about their health should give Telehealth a try. “Telehealth has helped me in so many ways. I know it is going to help so many other people as well.”
55-year-old Louise from Bourke, NSW has always thought of herself as ‘bullet proof’ and with a background in health, says she’s always been more concerned about the health of others, rather than her own.
But when she was diagnosed with cancer in 2015, while also suffering from diabetes and hypertension, Louise realised she needed to take control of her own health.
Having used LiveBetter’s Telehealth Home Monitoring system for the last two months, Louise says it’s the best decision she’s ever made because she can keep an eye on her health daily.
“I actually believe Telehealth saved my life because I had really high blood pressure and if it wasn’t picked up I could’ve been in a bit of trouble”.
“It’s made me much more aware of what’s going on with my body which has made me more proactive when it comes to my overall health and well being”.
Louise says she would recommend Telehealth to anyone who needs it because “it allows you to take control of your health, without relying on GPs and hospitals so much”.
Barry and Irene live in Orange, NSW and have been married for 48 years. Their two children live in Perth, along with their four grandchildren – whom they are very fond of.
The couple enjoy travelling to Perth to visit their family but haven’t been able to do so in the last year due to some health obstacles the pair have experienced.
With Barry being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in addition to having suffered a stroke, the couple recently turned to Telehealth (as part of Barry’s level 3 Home Care Package) to assist with monitoring and recording his vital signs. Irene says, “Having access to a Registered Nurse at the touch of a button is a huge relief to us”.
Irene is Barry’s primary carer and says Telehealth helps her better manage his health and well-being. For example, she can keep a close eye on his blood pressure fluctuations and work closely with their local GP and Specialists to keep it in check.
Irene says, “I couldn’t recommend Telehealth highly enough. It’s great having peace-of-mind that someone is keeping tabs on your health and knows when to intervene. It’s also great that we can take the system on our trips to Perth (as it’s portable) and still talk to our regular nurse. I would recommend it to anyone who needs it.”
