Give Em Health

As a patient advocate one of the things I help my clients with is their aging parents and some of the hard conversations they are needing to have. Who wants to give up their keys to the car, independent living, or traveling with the medicine cabinet? No one wants those things, or those conversations, but they are a way of life. I am here to help make them go as smoothly as possible for all parties involved so that we maintain respect and dignity. Take a listen into how some of these conversations can go!
