Care Giver (6)
Care Managers help families obtain the care needed to maintain the best quality of life for the elderly and adults with disabilities. They conduct in-depth assessments, develop care plans and recommendations, coordinate services, act as liaisons to health care providers and insurers, and continuously monitor services to ensure that the individual’s unique needs are met. They are knowledgeable about the wide array of resources available, including state and federal entitlement programs. In addition, Care Managers work closely with family caregivers to identify other community supports such as adult day care, homemaker services and more, to provide respite, reduce stress, and help make the caregiving process as positive as possible.
Care Managers are experts in assessing the individual’s full range of needs and locating the specific services that enhance well-being and independence. Family members or friends caring for older adults and those with disabilities are often faced with a confusing array of choices and difficult decisions. Care Managers save families time, money, and stress by finding the best solutions and maximizing the dignity and safety of their clients.
In addition to the elderly and adults with disabilities, several parties can benefit from working directly with Care Managers:
- Concerned families or friends of an elderly person or adult with disabilities needing care at home or in an alternative living situation
- Caregivers who need support to care for their spouse, partner, or adult child with disabilities
- Attorneys who provide elder law, trust, or estate services, or need a conservator for aging clients or clients living with a disability
- Bank trust officers with fiduciary responsibility for their customers
- Probate judges who need objective, professional assessments of a client’s needs, conservatorship, or professional care management for a case
- Physicians, nurses, social workers, hospital discharge planners, or other health care professionals concerned about the well-being of a patient
- Financial planners or accountants with an aging client or client with a disability, who needs an assessment to assist in future caregiving needs
- Employee Assistance Programs that work with caregiving employees
- Long-term care insurers
- Community agencies
