StacyCares Oklahoma, LLC was founded to help seniors communicate with their healthcare providers to enjoy the best possible care outcomes and quality of life. Stacy firmly believes that effective communication in healthcare settings reduces medical errors and saves lives.
Stacy was very close to her grandparents, and deeply moved when at age 22 she held her grandfather’s hand comforting him as he died from cancer. More than a decade later, she began helping her grandmother with the health issues, appointments, procedures, and hospitalizations that can come with late age. Her grandmother had set a wonderful example caring for her grandfather.
At the same time, Stacy advocated for another loved one with serious mental illness to get her the care she needed. For more than 10 years Stacy has spent hundreds of hours sitting bedside in hospitals, accompanying loved ones to medical appointments, and providing care coordination. Stacy has helped family and friends journey through a range of medical diagnoses and helped them discuss their concerns, questions, and decisions with their doctors.
When she has observed substandard care or mistreatment, Stacy has spoken up, met with administrators, and made formal written complaints that resulted in disciplinary actions or changes in training and procedures.
In 2019, Stacy formalized her years of experience by becoming a Board-Certified Patient Advocate and focused her decades of education toward helping others in need through StacyCares Oklahoma, LLC.
