Advocare is a team of Geriatric Care Managers (GCMs) integrating the skills of Nurses, Social Workers, and Life Care Planning professionals. Advocare empowers families with the knowledge needed to navigate our health & elder care systems, using a coordinated approach called Concentric Circles of CareTM.
In the Outer Circle, Care Managers serve as the family advisor and advocate. They conduct an assessment and create a care plan orchestrating all the resources to maximize health and independence.
