Health and Wealth: The Two Legs of Standing On Your Own

In today's world, it's not enough just to have a good paying job and money in the bank.  What happens if you get seriously sick?  You can lose your job, your savings, your car, your home, everything.

On the flip side, you can be healthy as a horse and at the same time be completely broke, living paycheck to paycheck.

Moving Beyond Hope was created to help families take back control of their financial and health situation through education, empowerment, and patient advocacy.

Financial Education and Empowerment

Conversation

Moving Beyond Hope is focused on helping families in the areas of financial empowerment, entrepreneurship by way of talent discovery and development, and creating a mindset for success.

We focus on families who say “I’m tired.  I need to make a change.  I need multiple streams of income.  I need to follow my calling.”  That’s not your bank account talking.  It’s your mindset.

For years, we’ve seen many families in our community struggle to get by and who live day to day not knowing, or being aware of, how great life can be outside of the grind of their daily lives. It’s our mission to raise their eyes off the ground and to show them the opportunities that surround them every day.  We are here to give them the skills they need and to teach them to become the best that they can be.

 

Patient Advocacy & Health Education

Nurse Making Notes During Home Visit With Senior Couple

A time of illness is a stressful time for you as well as for your family. The best-laid plans can go wrong, your judgment is impaired, and, put simply, you need to be at your best when you're at your worst. You need someone who can look out for your best interests and help you navigate the confusing healthcare system–in other words, an advocate.

What is a patient advocate?

An advocate is a “supporter, believer, sponsor, promoter, campaigner, backer, or spokesperson.”  They're someone you trust who is willing to act on your behalf as well as someone who can work well with other members of your healthcare team such as your doctors and nurses.

An advocate may be a member of your family, such as a spouse, a child, another family member, or a close friend.  Social workers, nurses and chaplains may also fill this role. They can often be very helpful in cutting through medical red tape.
