Advocate for You
We will function as a catalyst for the team because its various care providers, who belong to a variety of disciplines, need to be mobilized for a common purpose. Your care manager is both the eyes and the ears of the patient, his caregivers and his loved ones. As such, she is a valuable source of information for all. The case manager develops a partnership with the client, gathers relevant information from him and his family, assesses his physical condition, identifies his support network, anticipates care requirements, makes plans for the necessary procedures and initiates them.
A sudden fall or complications from a medical condition creates a crisis for many families. We navigate through emergency departments and hospitalizations, rehabilitation stays, securing services, supplies and equipment. When necessary we will ensure your home is safely prepared and equipped for your return home. As an advocate for our clients, we ensure that adequate care is available and records are maintained. For families that live at a distance, this can be a much-needed 24/7 emergency contact. Local, cost-effective resources are identified and engaged as available. A care plan tailored for each individual’s circumstances is prepared along with doctors and a comprehensive assessment. The plan may be modified, in consultation with client's and family, as circumstances change and evolve.
