Rio Advocates
Health Advocacy & Care Management




Rio Advocates knows that older adults and family caregivers are often overwhelmed by paperwork and phone calls when confronted with our modern healthcare system. We can help shoulder this burden. We provide healthcare advocacy and care management for aging adults and we do this in a way that is directed by you. 

Because we are a small, personal company, our solutions are independent and are based upon years of experience in the healthcare system working with people in facilities, medical providers, mental health providers, and attorneys. We understand the multiple issues facing aging adults and their families, we advocate for our clients using the most current knowledge and best practices. 

Rio Advocates is proudly guided by the highest ethical standards, along with empathy and a passion for the well-being of the senior citizens of New Mexico.
