Learn about our Wellness Advocates and what they do to help.
The Wellness Advocate addresses the full spectrum of patient’s social determinants of health and works with clinical staff to provide an envelope of care with a broad focus on wellness.
The Wellness Advocate:
- Engages patients and provides assistance to them by assessing their environmental and social settings to identify obstacles which may be present, preventing them from following their ongoing care plan(s) and are interfering with their day-day healthy living.
- Establishes culturally appropriate and trusting relationships with patients and their families through advocacy, patient education and successful warm hand offs in accessing community-based programs.
