These meetings are set up between the advocate and client.  The frequency is determined by the scope of the job as well as any urgent or time sensitive requirements that may need to be addressed, for example collecting tax documents, overdue bills, etc.  Always our approach is to keep the client as involved as he or she wants or can be, providing them with both peace of mind and a level of independence with the knowledge that their affairs are secure and in order.  Advocates can and do work remotely if proper access is set up. Regardless of the set-up, communication between the advocates and MPB management as well as with the family and/or trusted advisor occurs frequently so all are aware of progress as well as any issues that may arise.
