IKOR Advocates are independent professionals looking out for the needs of our clients. We go beyond traditional case management by advocating for our clients in every aspect of their life. Our Life Management Assessment provides the foundation for everything we do. Through this assessment, we gain a holistic view of our client’s life and create a Life Management Advocacy Plan tailored to their needs and preferences. In the Life Management Advocacy Plan, you will find expert, unbiased advice that puts the needs of the client first and foremost. Our goal is to achieve an optimal level of wellness and improve coordination of care while providing cost effective, non-duplicative service. From medical advocacy to residential needs assessments to on-site safety assurance evaluations and routine bill pay, IKOR Advocates are the professionals you can rely on.

We understand tending to the needs of seniors and those with disabilities can be overwhelming. Contact us today to learn how IKOR’s unique approach to life management can help you.
