Advocacy

In addition to Independent Mental Health Advocacy or Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy, Elysium Healthcare can enable access to Independent Advocacy services to visit the sites on a regular basis or on request. Each site will tell your loved one about the availability of these services. An Advocate is independent, they are not a member of the Elysium Healthcare team and they play no part in treatment and care. The ways in which an Advocate helps patients, residents or service users can be:

 

  • Helping your loved one to have their voice heard and supporting them whenever they need it.
  • Explaining and exercising the rights of your family member, in relation to the Mental Health Act 1983 (amended 2007) and the Mental Capacity Act.
