Would you recommend Illinois Guardianship and Advocacy Commission?

by Maria R. from Villa Park, IL (October 10, 2019)
I have been volunteering with them since last fall and it’s very interesting. There is a degree of traveling to various health care clinics and hospitals. I recommend some knowledge in health care, as you are investigating allegations of abuse/restricted rights of mentally ill consumers.
