Does Your Senior Need a Geriatric Advocate?


We would all need different types of care in our lives. Among such needs is an advocate for our golden years. As a provider of senior home healthcare in Saint Petersburg, Florida, we would often see this need among our clients. However, many families do not know how to go about the need, much less identify it.

Fortunately, there are questions you can ask to find out if they do need a geriatric advocate. Among these include but are not limited to the following:

  • Does your loved one have a complex condition that requires multiple transfers, complex treatments, additional services, and, thus, more paperwork and administrative requirements?
  • Are there age-related issues that you and the rest of the family feel are ill-equipped to handle?
  • Has your senior loved one just come out of long-term hospitalization? Are they having a difficult time adjusting to their new care setting or even the place they’ve called home before the hospitalization?
  • Do you want to ensure that your senior loved one’s options are explored and their rights protected?
  • Are there difficult short- and long-term care plans that may benefit from an expert third-party perspective?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then your loved one would definitely benefit from this type of care.
