“What they promised was not what they delivered.” We felt this way years ago when WE needed services for our loved ones. We heard the same from those like us as all of us were trying to find reputable and affordable help for our loved ones.
We got through it and did it mostly ourselves. Others asked our help seeing we were succeeding through the maze. After it all we saw a huge hole in the level of affordable care. It was that epiphany (and soon to be clients insistence)that we then decided to start Advocates On Call.
We are the home companion service that listens! We are here to help “Watch List” and “Surveys”?
We have experienced first hand, the fear, confusion and stress facing seniors and their loved ones.
Don’t be a victim!
Dad was not satisfied with his care! We strongly agreed. Managing elder affairs is extremely time consuming, difficult and challenging. From afar, it only becomes more complicated.
We faced daily nightmares:
Elaine’s father was hospitalized after a bad fall. Before we even got to Florida, Dad was released from the hospital and sent to a rehabilitation center. No time to plan and research… The facility was selected based solely on availability of a bed and location.
What do you do when many of the doctors and medical facilities, don’t accept your health insurance or long term care insurance? Try getting your prescriptions filled…
Together, we provide solutions and proactively handle your needs. We adhere to highest professional standards.
We have decided to stay permanently in Florida and to help others like we helped our parents. Our goal is to help you live the best quality of life possible.
