Health Care Advocacy
Integracare doesn’t just provide home health care in Toronto and Mississauga. We’re also your advocates in health care. Being an advocate means standing up for what’s best for you or your loved one. It means listening to your needs, learning about your pain, worries and recovery, and making sure we are there to speak on you or your loved one’s behalf. Home health care should include health care advocacy.
Health Care Advocacy Is Part of Nursing Care in Toronto and Mississauga
The definition of advocacy is “the act or process of supporting a cause or process.” When it applies to nursing care, advocacy is about standing up for the rights, dignity and comfort of our Clients.
In today’s health care environment, where dollars, health care professionals and resources are severely limited, anyone ill or unable to speak up for himself or herself must have an advocate to ensure that the most is made of whatever resources are available.
Private nursing care from Integracare includes health care advocacy with other health professionals. A Registered Nurse is there not only to provide treatments but to ensure our Client’s health care needs are also being prioritized and met by their Physicians and other medical professionals. Integracare can also decode the jargon of the medical practice and speak up for Clients. The knowledge that you or your loved ones have a health care advocate available 24/7 is invaluable and can bring great comfort.
Health Care Advocacy in Hospitals
Hospitalization is an emotionally draining situation for you and your family. In most hospitals, Doctors and Nurses are overstretched and often have limited time for each patient, and it can be infuriating dealing with the public health system. Private nursing care in Toronto and Mississauga fills the gaps left by the public health system to make sure you or your loved one is comfortable, pain-free and closely monitored.
