Q: What is a care manager and how do I know if we need one?
A: Many individuals and their families turn to home healthcare services when they need support for a serious illness or injury or to help a loved one continue to live independently at home. A care manager can help to ensure that your loved one receives the care and support they need. Simply put, the system is sometimes hard to navigate and getting services coordinated can be a challenge. Your care manager, who will be appointed by the nursing agency you are working with, will help with everything from overall planning and everyday essentials to keeping you informed of progress or changes. Working with a care manager also provides a point of contact with someone who understands your loved one’s needs and has the foresight to anticipate future requirements.
