TLC Guidepost is a health care centered blog focused on helping our community and especially seniors to learn about their health care options. While health care is evolving towards more of a patient-centered model, we are not very close to achievement of this worthwhile goal. As a patient, caregiver or proxy you will need to be aggressive in your pursuit of the kind of care that you want in your late years. It is up to you to be the center of your care, not just a revenue center for healthcare facilities and practitioners. It is our aim to help you to advance care plan, to ask the important questions that will give you the answers that you need to be an informed decision maker and how to choose a quality provider.
