Life can become frustrating and discouraging for people who have difficulty perceiving, communicating, or travelling – especially when circumstances are unfamiliar. An advocate can provide valuable assistance by clarifying options, helping their client or loved one make their own choice based on their own values, communicating that choice, and doing the practical things necessary to implement the choice.
In the article at this link, the geriatric care managers at Care is There discuss how to be an effective advocate for your client or loved one.
