Respiratory Health Advocacy

Private, professional health advocates are defined as those advocates who work directly for patients, their families and caregivers, and not through an intermediary such as a hospital, insurer, or other person or organization that may have conflicting interests (Alliance of Professional Health Advocates, 2014). Private Respiratory Health Advocates represent those who need assistance with their breathing disorders.  Also called “Respiratory Patient Advocates,” we can help you in many different ways, but in general we help you “navigate” through today’s complicated health care system.  If you have a breathing problem and do not know where to turn for help, a private Respiratory Health Advocate from Select Respiratory Services can act on your behalf.  Our expert assistance ensures that you will be well-informed about your options and will receive the best care Happy Elder Lady and Nursepossible.
