South Florida Geriatric Care Services

Advocare geriatric care services roots took hold in 2001 when Amy Seigel began her private medical advocacy work.

Amy is a graduate of University of Miami Nursing School, and is a Registered Nurse (RN), a Certified Case Manager (CCM), and a Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse (CRRN).

Born and raised in New York, Amy found that she was receiving phone calls from extended family and friends in the northeast, asking for geriatric care services when senior parents and grandparents became ill. As a rehab nurse with elder care expertise and knowledge of South Florida health care resources she was able to intervene and get results. She realized that, with her unique skills, she was able to help families get to best doctors, facilities, therapies and other aging life care services in a timely manner. Her proactive style of diplomatic advocacy helped families to cut through the red tape of the care and recovery process. Her watchful eye not only saved time and money, but also resulted in significantly more positive medical outcomes for clients.

David, RN, CCM is Advocare’s Director of Care Management. David holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Eastern Michigan University and a Bachelor of Science in Biology and minor in Chemistry from Palm Beach Atlantic University.

David has over 30 years of experience in the nursing profession assisting consumers in meeting their health care goals. He holds a national board certification as a Certified Case Manager (CCM) and has served as Director for Care Management programs for both Medicare and Medicaid.

David began his career in health care in Ann Arbor, Michigan working in a teaching hospital. Since that time, he has gained extensive experience in working with health care consumers and leaders in home health (Medicare and Private Duty), Medical Adult Day Care and Care Management to improve quality of life and meet individuals where they are in their own health care journey.

David’s focus for the last 30 years has been to provide  leadership in his nursing career that supports delivering a holistic, integrated approach to care. He believes that true healing happens when you address the “whole” person. (mind, body and spirit).
