Straight Talk about Standing Firm- Advocating for Yourself and Your Family

As family caregivers, we play many roles: scheduler, money manager, house cleaner, health aide, nurse, navigator, nurturer and more. Perhaps the most important role, though, is advocate, as we ensure the best life possible for our loved ones when they are vulnerable.

About the Event

As family caregivers, we play many roles: scheduler, money manager, house cleaner, health aide, nurse, navigator, nurturer and more. Perhaps the most important role, though, is advocate, as we ensure the best life possible for our loved ones when they are vulnerable.

While we would each like to think that the professionals we encounter in the course of daily life are looking out for our best interest and are there to help us make good decisions, this is often not “truly” the case. Whether it’s for you or a loved one, being an advocate is important.

Even those genuinely wishing to help us are sometimes swayed by financial incentives, lack of available time or even access to needed information.

You might not think of yourself as an advocate, but you already are. Each time you speak up for yourself or someone else, you are an advocate.

Learn why it is so important to become a strong advocate for yourself and others in areas of healthcare, finances, living options, end-of-life wishes and more.
