Meet Melanie M. Parks

Addressing specific needs and concerns of the aging population and their adult caregivers as well as other client needs.


As Founder and CEO of Lend A Helping Hand Healthcare Advocates, originally from Massachusetts, operating out of Atlanta, GA, I am a Registered Nurse, Board Certified Patient Advocate with a background in nursing, hospice & palliative care, inpatient case management and health insurance plans. I earned my Bachelor and Master Degrees from Chamberlain College of Nursing. I experienced many challenging healthcare situations, both personal and professional, that contribute to my extensive knowledge and experience as a reputable resource to the communities I serve. With 10 years of experience, I maneuver the healthcare system efficiently, with confidence and enjoy addressing the specific needs and concerns of the aging population and their adult caregivers as well as other client needs. I empower clients to speak for themselves and own their voice, advocate for their rights, participate in making decisions about their care options, gain awareness of their health insurance benefits, and become owners of their health status and well-being. You can expect to make fewer phone calls, which means less stress and more time for you and your family. I help make appointments, obtain reports and facilitate information sharing with other physicians and caregivers to save you time and money. I afford patients and families the opportunity to focus on the needs of the patient and the emotional and physical needs of one another while Lending a Hand. With the knowledge, passion, and dedication I possess, I am here to assist those who feel overwhelmed and confused by their illness or the healthcare system while they navigate the healthcare frenzy. During our initial phone call, I will elicit necessary information to determine if I am the right advocate for your personal needs. The call is free and will last 15-30 minutes. We will work together to come up with a plan that suits your needs as the client and/or family member and come up with a proposed timeline to meet your personalized goals. Look forward to talking with you soon!
