About Us – South Florida Geriatric Care Services
Advocare geriatric care services roots took hold in 2001 when Amy Seigel began her private medical advocacy work. Amy is a graduate of University of Miami Nursing School, and is a Registered Nurse (RN), a Certified Case Manager (CCM), and a Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse (CRRN).
Born and raised in New York, Amy found that she was receiving phone calls from extended family and friends in the northeast, asking for geriatric care services when senior parents and grandparents became ill. As a rehab nurse with elder care expertise and knowledge of South Florida health care resources she was able to intervene and get results. She realized that, with her unique skills, she was able to help families get to best doctors, facilities, therapies and other aging life care services in a timely manner. Her proactive style of diplomatic advocacy helped families to cut through the red tape of the care and recovery process. Her watchful eye not only saved time and money, but also resulted in significantly more positive medical outcomes for clients.
With a mission of “advocacy for optimal care,” Amy formed Advocare. Her passion began to attract a team of like-minded, credentialed geriatric care services professionals who shared her enthusiasm for assisting the ill and elderly and optimizing the care and recovery process. In 2005, after three years of working weekends to handle the operations side of Advocare, her husband Marty became sufficiently enthralled with the Advocare mission to leave corporate America and become a full time business partner in Advocare operations.
We are proud that Advocare’s team of Professional Care Managers serves all of South Florida with the highest level of professional care management and aging life care services. Our team member’s credentials far surpass the “average” care management industry minimum standards. Advocare offers a wide range of geriatric care services ranging from light care monitoring and senior fitness programs to complex medical care management.
