[Situation: Harry and the challenges he faces are presented along the video in motion design]
Harry’s healthy, generally speaking, though he has a bad knee and can’t run anymore.
He also has high cholesterol, so he’s trying to eat healthier.
And there’s more: Harry’s son has asthma and his mother, who lives three hours away, needs more care.
That’s a lot to deal with, but luckily Harry and his family can count on the Health and Well-being Platform from Desjardins Insurance.

Thanks to the platform Harry was able to find a physiotherapy clinic for his knee that he could visit during his lunch break.
He read up on how certain foods could help him actually lower his cholesterol.
And he found an asthma specialist for his son as well as a great home care service to help his mother in her own community all with the click of a mouse and a phone call to our health information specialists.
So now Harry and his family have somewhere to turn for answers to their health care questions at home or on the go.
Harry’s feeling better about himself and he’s managing his family’s health with confidence.
The Desjardins Insurance Health and Well-being Platform helped Harry. How can we help you?
