Help clients understand:
We lack the experience and expertise to advise people in the following service areas: mental health-only needs; pediatrics; L+I claims; the VA system.
Advocates serve in an information and facilitation role in health care. We do not make decisions for clients but rather empower them to feel confident in voicing their care goals and choices. We do not provide any clinical services, despite our professional license. We are also barred from providing patient transportation, though we can certainly accompany a client in a taxi or uber.
