Althea_635662733.jpgFor over 20 years, I have been advocating for the vulnerable and the dying.  Most recently, I became a Board Certified Patient Advocate. I mediated elder disputes for the LA County Dept of Consumer Affairs, helping seniors challenge bill collectors and negotiate fair settlements. As a Long-term Care Ombudsman, I advocated for and educated seniors.  I mediated disputes between the residents and administrators or fellow residents.  I helped them draft advance care directives and final wishes. As a hospice volunteer, I sat at the bedside of many dying people.  In addition to supporting their families, I helped tie up their final loose ends so they could pass in peace. I have training and experience in bioethics disputes and sat on a committee that made recommendations for treatment of the "unbefriended" solos in their final days.
