Speaker: Caryn Isaacs, BCPA

A 70 year old woman fell down a flight of stairs.  A Pandora’s box revealed misdiagnosis, financial fraud and caregiver coercion.   



  1. Determining and understanding the needs of personal review and evaluation by advocates with each client.
  2. Helping a client understand the needs required by their healthcare and financial agents. Then with this knowledge, helping them choose these agents.
  3. Helping a client determine the different options of living and lifestyle for them and then helping them choose the best option.


Caryn Isaacs, Private Professional Patient Advocate finds ways for Aging Icons to continue their life mission regardless of aging or illness.

Caryn has over 40 years of experience helping people to navigate the health system as a former representative of business and labor organizations.

As a leader in the Clinton era health reform movement, Caryn recognized early on that it was becoming increasingly difficult for patients to find a single source of information about health care options, legal issues and financial planning. Caryn’s company GetHealthHelp.LLC specializes in communication between all the players including family and friends or addresses the lack thereof, people known as Elder Orphans.

Caryn Isaacs tells stories and facilitates interactive programs that empower people to zero in on the obstacles and opportunities to reach goals that they never thought possible.

Here’s what people say about Caryn “When they say there’s nothing that can be done, it just means that they don’t know what to do, Caryn always does.” You can see more about Caryn Isaacs and view some of her videos, blogs and stories at GetHealthHelp.com and soon at AgingIcon.com. You can also see her on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn, plus hundreds of Google spots where Caryn is interviewed as the expert in her field.
