Contacting Best Care is convenient and confidential
Call Best Care to schedule a confidential, cost-free appointment:
When you contact the FSEAP, a qualified Best Care staff member will speak with you to assess the nature of the problem and to identify the best course of action to be taken. In most instances, problems can be resolved within a number of confidential and private sessions with a Best Care Professional provided at their location.
If a referral to a community resource is necessary, the FSEAP staff will refer you to the most appropriate resource available.
