Caring For Aging Parents

What is a patient advocate service?

It is an organization, sometimes “not for profit” and other times “for profit,” which for a fee will develop a whole plan of care with you. There are many such companies in every state. Check with your parents’ or relatives’ doctors for referrals, and also ask them if any of it can be covered by insurance. Patient advocate services bring an entire team of people on your side that will help in all aspects of your parents’ or relatives’ care.
