There are many situations where people need qualified advice concerning their health care or they need support, e.g. after an accident, an operation, a severe illness or age-related diseases. Qualified health guides will provide orientation and guidance tailored for the individual case. They recognize the major issues and have a large network for further support. Health guides act at the interfaces of the health system, e.g. the local social services department, in pharmacies, in HR departments of large companies.
