Your Health is a Gift. None of us can predict when our health may change unexpectedly. At any moment, you may suddenly require an emergency- room visit, hospitalization, unplanned surgery or simply the need for additional in-home support. A change in one’s health can often result in a new diagnosis, new medical specialists, new medications or even a short rehab stay after hospitalization. Where can you turn for help to navigate today’s complicated health care system and find the help you need?
