What is Care Management?
Care management involves coordination and assistance with health care and medical oversight, residential needs and relocation, access to community resources, and other support services. A care manager creates a care plan to help identify unique needs and goals and proposes the necessary resources to provide quality services that allow for those goals to be met. A care manager offers support and guidance while helping to eliminate stress and burden on the client and their loved ones.
One of our experienced care managers will work with you and your family by utilizing person-centered care and taking a holistic approach. Clients and their loved ones are encouraged to participate in the development of care plans and services are customized to meet their individual needs, wishes, and goals. By combining collective experience in the professional services of care management, guardianship, rehabilitative care, and finance, our staff works collaboratively to bring the best possible care solutions that are tailored to meet our clients’ needs.
