12-Week Virtual Post-Covid Syndrome Treatment

Posted by teacherwife74 @teacherwife74, Jan 18, 2022

How do you request access to the 12-Week Virtual program? I’ve exhausted every local resource and am desperate for help.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Post-COVID Recovery & COVID-19 Support Group.

Following, I am enrolled in that they said someone would contact me. My class was last Friday and 2nd was Monday. I think I'm just antsy to get started

@teacherwife74, You can apply to the Virtual 12-Week Treatment Program at Mayo Clinic by going to the appointment requests page here: http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63

The 12-week virtual program is an extension of the inperson program. First the Mayo COVID team evaluates every person in-person to see if they find anything unusual that warrants treatment before starting the virtual program for treatment. In person appointments at Mayo's Post-COVID-19 Care Clinic are available at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida and Rochester, Minnesota.

Appointment availability may limited as there is more demand than capacity at the moment. I suggest you contact Mayo, Rochester again and ask specifically for the Post-COVID-19 Care Clinic.

Here is a description of the program:
"At Mayo Clinic, the primary treatment for post COVID-19 syndrome is guided rehabilitation. Our team helps participants learn and implement new, simple skills at a graded and paced interval, to improve overall functioning and achieve a better quality of life following COVID-19 infection.

Whether local, or from afar, the 12-week program offers virtual treatment and ongoing support. The program begins with two virtual group sessions hosted by nurses and health and wellness specialist. The sessions help participants understand how COVID-19 has impacted their body and contributed to ongoing symptoms. These sessions also provide simple techniques to incorporate into day to day activities to help participants achieve health and wellness goals. Following the virtual sessions, the program continues with ongoing support from our team, who will work with participants on a one on one basis, to help guide and motivate them. Our expert nursing and provider teams will follow up at several touchpoints to check in on progress made and will modify the care plan as needed to help participants reach their goals. "

Liz, how were your classes? What's your primary goal?

Thank you for this thread. I attempted to enroll in the 12 week program a couple months ago but once I was connected to the covid clinic report I was told she didn't know anything about a virtual program and that mayo clinic was no longer accepting out of state patients in their covid clinic, so this would apply to me. Having seen this post I just completed the appointment request again and hope to be able to join the 12 week program. I am 4 months in to long haul symptoms and would so love to get help from the mayo clinic

I just talked to someone after making an appointment request and she also had no idea what I was taking about with the 12 week virtual program. Is this available to out of state people? Is it provided through Mayo Clinic itself or somewhere else? Is it through a specific clinic? I talked to the Rochester Clinic. I’m getting nowhere with my PCP in terms of building back to regular work/activity because of the fatigue and this sounded like great information.
