Why is Advocare’s South Florida Care Management Unique?

Geriatric Care Management services can vary quite considerably from one agency to another. As leaders in the field, we believe that it is important for the consumer to understand what makes one agency different from another, especially in a field where such differences may not be apparent at first blush.

Here are some key differences that we believe sets Advocare apart from others:

1. OVER TEN YEARS EXPERIENCE
Our Director of Care Management is a Certified Case Manager and Certified Rehabilitation RN. Our Care Managers have the most extensive experience in the industry.

2. MORE EXPERTISE – MODEST RATES
Our Care Managers are more MEDICALLY FOCUSED than the “average” Care Manager (Translation – YOU GET MORE FOR YOUR MONEY). Check out our impeccable track record and read the client comments on our website – including the many medical professionals who have chosen Advocare Elder Care Management to manage their parent’s care.

3. COMPREHENSIVE SUPPORT
We can manage medications, providing instructions to client and caregivers on proper administration. We coordinate efforts of multiple physicians – to minimize potential drug interactions. Because our Care Managers are trained in both medical and psycho-social issues – we can support you on a diverse range of issues from spot checks at home or facility, to alternative living options to hurricane planning.

4. WE ARE REAL LOCAL
We don’t run our Care Managers around the map. They work in zones. The benefit to you? They REALLY know the local resources in their area. Also by being close it helps conserve your resources. We can also help you find other reliable professionals in the area such as elder attorneys, transportation, and bill payers.

5. UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY
Our proprietary Virtual Medical Chart documents all time, activity, and case notes – we will always be able to be accountable to you for detail of any services. Your Care Manager can securely access history and update status – anytime, anywhere in an emergency – even right at the hospital. Advocare is also a technology provider of 24/7 live operator staffed care monitoring and medication management systems. These systems greatly increase medication compliance and the response time in an emergency – weaving a safety net for independence.

6. SAVE TIME
Just one call does it all – Our Care Manager will always keep you informed by phone or email. We will help you find the best physicians, provide personal advocacy at appointments, and liaison with medical providers for continuity of care. We can assist to pay bills, coordinate contractors, and handle administrative issues.

7. FIND BENEFITS
We will help you to maximize government and insurance benefits. We know how to help you obtain the maximum amount of Medicare resources to pay for care, and we can then wrap around additional private care as needed. We can provide guidance in obtaining Veteran and Medicaid benefits.

8. ALWAYS ON – AND BACKED UP BY OUR TEAM
Care Managers are available for emergencies 24/7 for crisis intervention & support at home, ER, or hospital.. And if your Care Manager is sick or on vacation? Every Care Manager has a designated backup with secure access to the client’s key medical and care information.
