Ever wish you had someone to help keep the details of life straight? Someone to ask the hard questions? Someone to find just the right person who can help and to schedule your appointments for you? Who wouldn’t love someone like that in their life, especially at a time when life seems to have been turned upside down?
That’s basically what our client advocates do! Many medical centers have discovered that as highly trained professionals, patient advocates can help resolve your concerns about any aspect of your health care experience. Patient advocates listen to any questions, problems, or special needs you have and refer your concerns to the appropriate staff for resolution. LivingWell Medical Clinic knows exactly how important client advocates are: our advocates walk alongside our clients through the entire process of figuring out pregnancy plans.
From the moment a client enters our office, an advocate helps him or her fill out the paperwork, understand our services, process medical information, get clear answers to any questions related to a pregnancy or STI diagnosis, figure out what the options are and the ways that pregnancy plans will affect him or her. But wait! There’s more!
Our client advocates support each client, looking at what community resources are available for that person’s specific situation, letting each client fill out a personal decision-making guide, and helping the client to communicate with key people in their life about the plans they’ve made—never directing a client’s decisions but serving as a sounding board to help a client process.
Our trained, compassionate, client advocates guarantee our clients that they will not walk alone through whatever life has thrown at them. Even if the pregnancy was unexpected, or the financial situation has changed—and along with it resources that our client was counting on, or the questions don’t have easy answers, LivingWell Medical Clinic’s client advocates can help. Our goal is to figure out the biggest hurdles and to help our clients find their way over, under, around, or through them. We have lots of options, even when it’s complicated.
When the idea of a pregnancy seems overwhelming, come in. Let’s talk.
