What’s It All About?

In the increasingly fast-pasted and complex world of health services, getting the outcome you wish for and deserve from a medical appointment is more and more difficult.  This is especially true for Elders who may feel intimidated, overwhelmed and hesitant to assert themselves and their needs.  It used to be a good idea to have an advocate with you at medical appointments.  Now, it’s imperative.

How Does It Work?

So many questions, so little time.  Is this how you’re feeling about your next appointment with your doctor?  Would you rather feel  empowered and less frustrated instead? When it’s your health at stake it’s hard to stay calm and focused so you can be confident you are making informed decisions. That’s why people are turning to professional Patient Advocates to help them navigate the arduous road of healthcare and stay healthy. As your Patient Advocate, I will accompany you to appointments with your doctor, help them go smoothly, and result in the outcome that meets your goals.


I will use my training and expertise to help you:

  • Prepare for appointments.

  • Convey your needs and concerns.

  • Stay on track and get your questions answered.

  • Understand the next steps you need to take

  • Follow through on doctors’ recommendations

  • Return home quickly and easily after a hospital stay
