Orlando, FL (Patient Advocate Conference)-December 5, 2011
Aging Wisely, LLC was chosen as the 2011 winner of the Patient Advocacy Award in the category of “Patient Advocate Organization”. This award is presented by the Professional Patient Advocacy Institute, which is “a member organization and a community aligned around the common cause of providing advocacy for consumers as they strive to secure their healthcare needs and cover their insurance and financial matters”. These awards are intended to set the benchmark for recognizing those who provide leading patient advocacy on behalf of patients and their families.
Aging Wisely has been serving elders and a variety of clients and their families since 1998, providing care management and advocacy services. Aging Wisely serves clients in the Tampa Bay area, as well as consulting with families all across the country.
Aging Wisely not only assists clients and families on a daily basis with advocacy, but also reaches out to improve broader advocacy efforts in the community and improve overall healthcare and eldercare. Aging Wisely’s advocacy efforts also go beyond the local community and clients served. From an early stage, Aging Wisely focused on having a strong educational component in its website and other communications. Aging Wisely’s blog presents advocacy topics on a regular basis, which are also shared through social and traditional media to benefit consumers as well as professional colleagues. Aging Wisely’s blog and email newsletter were recognized as finalists in SeniorHomes.com “Best of the Web” last year, among many well-recognized national organizations. Over 2,000 people receive Aging Wisely’s monthly newsletter, keeping them apprised of recent healthcare news, eldercare resources and tips.
