Kaleido adds new services to support families and now offers subscribers access to telemedicine

December 9, 2021

Kaleido firmly believes that all young people can succeed if they are given the financial and personal support they need to reach their full potential. With that in mind, Kaleido is pleased to announce new additions to its lineup of support services for families, including preferred access to VIP webinars and telemedicine, in cooperation with TELUS Health.

Kaleido clients already benefit from a wealth of free or paid family accompanying services and related resources, all in one place. Today, the company is adding new health and well-being services to its existing menu of useful and relevant content that includes tutoring, academic support, and coaching for parents.

Making life easier with preferred access to telemedicine

Starting today, Kaleido RESP subscribers can sign up for an app that gives families access to telemedicine. This special gateway to the TELUS Health virtual care app comes with 24/7 access to healthcare professionals and a host of other resources.

“The pandemic has highlighted the importance of quick and easy access to high-quality healthcare solutions, 24/7,” said Isabelle Grenier, Kaleido President and CEO.

She added that this new feature is consistent with Kaleido’s mission of helping each child reach their full potential by offering comprehensive support that promotes health and well-being for children and their families. “Health and peace of mind, just like financial planning, are an important part of the journey to academic success,” according to Grenier.
