How I Can Help
When I work with families to help them navigate the healthcare system for their aging parents, what you get is someone who has "been there, done that" and who understands your questions and concerns about doing the right things at the right times to make sure your loved ones are getting the care that they need and deserve. What if you had one person to call that handled all the details that you shouldn't have to deal with so you can concentrate on being a son or daughter?
As a registered nurse and a board certified patient advocate, I have an intimate understanding of how hospitals, nursing homes, hospice and healthcare team members function and communicate with each other as well as a vast network of professionals to call on for additional expertise in all areas of care management.
Look, it's not as if you couldn't figure this all out on your own and you don't have to! You'll definitely save precious time and money by asking for and accepting the help of someone who knows the path you are walking and the route to take to avoid any dark caves along the way.

Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
My mom had Alzheimer's and lived across the country with my step-dad who was my mom's high school sweetheart that she married at the age of 72. When it came time to hire in-home care for her, I conducted all the necessary interviews and unfortunately, the home care agency put a felon in my mom's home as her caregiver. I was able to figure out what was going on within a few months and moved my mom to a facility where she thrived until the end of her life. In the meantime, the "caregiver" remained in the picture, financially exploiting my step-dad for $1.5 million and everything he owned. After my mom died, she tricked my step-dad in to marrying her, getting her name on the house and the will and taking out a life insurance policy on him when he was 86 and she was 35.
My mission is to provide families with the objectivity they need to avoid this type of situation or any clinical problem from escalating. As an RN Senior Advocate and having experienced the same types of things you are going through now, my role is to be the thread that binds everything together in order to see the entire picture and make everything a little bit easier.
