Session 1 - About Me
Part 8 - Advocating for Care
An important practice for carers of a person in care is advocating for them, meaning acting to support them, when they can’t or choose not to speak for themselves.
Guide: Begin to write your advocacy plan by thinking about the questions below.
- What are you hoping to accomplish for your family member/friend? (What is your goal or desired result)
- What is your message?
- Who should you talk to? Who needs to know about your goal?
- Consider the perspective of the person or persons you are talking with.
For tips on advocacy and communicating with staff, see the helpful resources section.
