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.

Mike Steiner, Managing Director

Mike’s career is one of service. After college, Mike made the decision to serve his country. While in the US Navy he served on the USS Puget Sound, the Six Fleet Flag Ship stationed in Gaeta, Italy – whose motto was “Standard for Excellence”.  During his service, Mike received several commendations as a result of his resourcefulness, perseverance and reliability.  Those traits made him appealing to Motorola, who recruited him following his honorable discharge. For nearly two decades, Mike managed and led massive complex projects both domestically and internationally.

Following his career at Motorola, Mike turned his focus toward serving the needs of individuals and started a Right at Home in-home care agency, serving Northern Lake County.  Embracing his Navel “Standard for Excellence” motto, Mike embraces quality which is one of his major differentiators.  Using his project management, team building and customer service experience, Mike’s agency has received recognition for service excellence the from the independent satisfaction research firm Home Care Pulse and the customer rating website Caring.com.  Mike not only has a perfect 5-star rating on Caring.com, his team received the prestigious 2017 Leader in Excellence award from Home Care Pulse (of which only 80 were awarded in the entire country, 8 in Illinois and his office is the only one in Lake County).

Recognizing many seniors needed services beyond home care, Mike opened his IKOR office in 2016 to serve residents along Chicago’s Northshore and in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs. Through IKOR’s comprehensive approach to life care management, Mike is able to continue his life’s focus on service by helping seniors and individuals with disabilities live a fulfilling and independent life.

Our Registered Nurse Advocates are highly experienced professionals with supervisory or management experience in the nursing field. RN Advocates have received specialized training from IKOR and have a special understanding of medical advocacy. They help our clients, and their families, navigate the complex, and often fragmented care systems. We understand tending to the needs of seniors and the disabled can be a daunting challenge. Our RN Advocates work with our clients to determine their medical needs and coordinate the delivery of care services to ensure our client’s needs are being met and personal preferences are being fulfilled.

Personal Needs Coordinators

Our Personal Needs Coordinators (PNCs) are experienced financial professionals who provide guidance, planning, oversight and the implementation of plans designed to focus on our client’s important life challenges. Personal Needs Coordinators can act as an independent, objective party to help make financial decisions that are in the best interest of our client.
