Assistance Managing In-home Care Services
At times when we are unable to manage our own in-home care, Case Managers are available to assist us in developing and implementing a supportive service plan.
Case Managers use a comprehensive evaluation that:
- Assesses our physical, psychological and social needs
- Considers available family members and friends who are able to assist us before looking at other available paid options.
- Is used to build a supportive services plan
Case Managers continue to oversee our progress until we are able to manage our own in-home care.
We can use the area map below to find the nearest Area Agency on Aging. Also to the right, “Quick Tips” and “Resources” are available to better assist us with finding reliable information and supports.
