What does this really mean?
Most of us are faced with unique difficulties and challenges. In some communities, our residents are older adults, many of whom need some degree of care and assistance. Some clients cannot be left alone due to memory impairment or chronic illness or just convalescence following an acute illness, injury or surgery. The extended family and children of our residents often live far away in other states or simply wants to go on vacation. Sometimes, there is only so much that can be done from a distance. Access to local services can be difficult and frustrating, making long distance care coordination nearly impossible. Care manager becomes your “contact person” in the care of your relative. Here are some of the services we can offer you or your relative in need:
- We meet the patient in person and visit them regularly to build trust and support.
- We can be there when you can’t.
- We establish contact with resources in the community.
- We negotiate on your behalf, securing better rates for services and care
- We have the expertise to get services in place quickly.
- Most of all, we can anticipate your family’s needs.
Our goal is to ensure that the patient feels supported, satisfied safe and secure knowledge that we are here. Our care managers are advocates for elderly or disabled individuals and work only for the families we serve.
