“When my husband went into the hospital recently, I was overwhelmed by the situation and trying to navigate today's health system is just too much for me.  We're so glad we called Hepworth & Associates as they did the navigating for us and made sure we didn't get lost in the shuffle.  I don't know what we would have done without them! ”

Inclusions for Personal Advocacy

Upon becoming a client of Hepworth & Associates, the “personal” component of Personal Advocacy begins, with your own, dedicated Senior Advisor.  Your advisor will listen to you, your situation and provide counsel, advice, options and considerations that are current, thoughtful, practical, doable and most of all, personal.  Your urgency is our urgency.

Much of our advisory and advocacy work is “communications”.  Communicating with your family, healthcare professionals, other service providers and professionals and of course, you!

Personal Advisor & Advocate

Sometimes you can’t do it all by yourself.  It’s frustrating to admit, but there are times when you can’t be there or speak for yourself when situations arise, and having an experienced voice there on your behalf could make all the difference.

Whether as your personal advocate or your personal advisor, we’re there to protect and advance your interests, both as a senior and as a family member who cares for you.  At moments like this….it’s all about you!

  • Being ignored in emergency room or being rushed out of your hospital bed
  • Dealing with today’s healthcare system (LHIN's, etc.)
  • Helping your mom or dad through a crisis event
  • Recognizing your caregiver burnout symptoms
  • Dealing with family issues and challenges…..the do’s and don’t do’s
  • Starting the “conversation” with your parents or your children
  • Managing key legal documents and decision maker selections
  • Learning to live alone again
  • Selecting a home care provider and how to manage them
  • Elder abuse in hospital or nursing homes
  • Speaking and advocating for you or your loved one, when they can’t
  • And many, many more.......
