Advocacy is representing someone else by acting on their behalf. It is action to help an older person to say what they want or need, and involves speaking on their behalf. This can help vulnerable older people who may lack the confidence or not fully understand how to access services or products and their complexity. There are services that will help elderly people by finding out their individual needs and preferences, then lobbying and representing them to ensure their needs are met.
