Healthcare Advocates provide one-on-one customized services, offering patients and their families a spectrum of education and guidance; in navigating the complex and often confusing healthcare maze.

Advocates provide services across the continuum of care; which includes the doctor’s office, ED, hospital, short-term rehab, hospice, and long term care nursing home.

Are you one of the 78% of people who are unprepared should a medical issue strike?

  • 116 million people are involved in an accident each year
  • 50% of people suffer with chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure or diabetes
  • 58% of all 911 calls involve a  senior
  • 67% of Americans have taken no steps to create advance directives;
    written wishes, should they not be able to speak on their own behalf


When a person travels to a new place on vacation, they often hire a guide.  This guide is very familiar with the location and can help focus on key points, while at the same time helping  to avoid potential trouble spots.

The Caregiver Resource Center’s roleis similar, in that we guide people of all ages through the often complex and confusing healthcare maze.

Healthcare for seniors and people with special needs often requires a multi-disciplinary team approach that encompasses many aspects of life such as:

  • Health and Mental Health
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
  • Transportation
  • Finances
  • Social Opportunities
  • Emotional Well Being

This process needs to focus on a person’s:

  • Hopes and Desires
  • Short and Long Term Goals
  • Abilities and Needs
  • Spectrum of Resources to address current and evolving needs

Healthcare is a collaborative process that consists of four steps:

  • Needs Assessment
  • Development of a customized Care Plan (road map)
  • Implementation & Monitoring of the Plan
  • Ongoing Review & Modification of Care Plans as needs change
