Fred Andres is a Telecare Hero!


Fred, the STAGES nurse, is Telecare Hero for his amazing work with our STAGES partners. Ever since Fred started with STAGES, he has taken off running. Fred’s skills have particularly stood out through his work with one of our partners that has difficulty managing his diabetes. Fred has gone above and beyond to coach our partner around the management of his diabetes while managing his psychiatric symptoms. Although our partner may not always accept assistance, Fred is always there to provide his advocacy, support, and encouragement.

Fred also makes sure that our STAGES partners receive the medical and psychiatric care that they need. His commitment and determination have made a difference in our partner’s lives, as he truly does “Whatever it takes” to aid in their recovery.

Fred always has a smile on his face. Being the only nurse for STAGES, Fred may be swamped at times, but that doesn’t stop him from saying hello to everyone he sees. He is a lively addition to our office and can always get you to laugh and have fun.
