About

Health advocates partner with an older adult to help prepare and accompany them to physician's visits, ask questions at the doctor appointment that may otherwise be forgotten or not thought of, and help explain and encourage compliance with physician's directives, such as medications. These volunteers play a vital role in the lives of older adults in need of help understanding their medical needs.

Volunteers must have an advanced degree in healthcare such as medical, nursing, social work, or dietician. Students currently pursuing these degrees are eligible to volunteer as well.
