Mary S. Daniel is a Board-Certified Patient Advocate with more than 30 years of medical practice management experience. Mary’s husband, Steve was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2013 at the age of 59.
He has been a resident at Rosecastle at Deerwood Memory Care Center in Jacksonville since July 2019. In July 2020, Mary gained national attention after taking a job as a dishwasher at Rosecastle so that she could spend time with Steve after being separated for 114 days during the lockdown due to COVID-19.
After the dishwasher story went viral, Mary founded the Facebook group Caregivers for Compromise – because isolation kills too! which has over 14,000 members in the national group and and thousands of other members in the chapters for every state. Her grassroots effort has led to legislation in many states including her home state of Florida where she worked extensively with Rep. Jason Shoaf, Rep. Clay Yarborough and Gov. DeSantis’s office to get SB 988, the No Patient Left Alone bill, passed in the recent session of the Florida Legislature. Governor DeSantis signed the bill into law on April 6, 2022. Her influence continues as the leader of thousands of caregivers who were impacted by the lockdowns of long-term care during the pandemic with a current focus on a federal bill that will guarantee visitation in the event of another health emergency, H.R. 3733, the Essential Caregiver Act. As the founder of Caregivers for Compromise Mary has created a following based on education and trust, helping caregivers understand how they can best advocate for their loved one.
