E144 - What you need to know about Virtual Health Care with Dr. Alissia Valentinis | Parent Talk

January 12, 2021

Have you used Virtual Health Care for your family? If not, you might be wondering how it works and what is available. Due to COVID-19, most Doctors are not seeing their patients in person as often and are taking most appointments over the telephone or by video chat. Here in Canada, we are also very fortunate to have a Health Care App, ‘Babylon’ by Telus Health! This is a great option for the whole family if you don’t currently have a family doctor or you need to see someone sooner then your own Doctor can see you.

Today Dr. Alissia Valentinis, Family Physician and the Ontario Medical Director for Babylon by Telus Health is here to let us know all about it! How to schedule an appointment, how and what to prepare for our virtual visit, and of course what to expect. 

After listening today, you will feel confident and ready for your next virtual appointment!

Happy listening!

Episode 141: Play with a Purpose

Guest(s): Traci Costa, CEO and Founder of PK Beans

 

How does your child process their feelings, especially during these difficult times?

Unstructured play for both physical and emotional development is so very important.

Calming and nurturing, helping to heal and communicate what sometimes can be too difficult to put into words. We must keep things simple, carve out those moments, and give children space and time to be bored. 

On today’s episode of ParentTalk, Traci shares why she believes play is so important, and how we can make space for play with a purpose.

Let go of the negative connotation that play can have, and that it’s just a waste of time. Embrace the the simplicity and joy that unstructured play can bring while watching your children create and explore.

Everyone will feel happier and naturally less stressed.                                                     

 

Happy listening!
