OUR PROCESS

How It Works

  • Preliminary Phone Call – An experienced Care Manager will schedule a preliminary phone call to get basic background information.
  • Comprehensive Assessment – A Care Manager will meet with you privately in your home. She will do a comprehensive assessment; take the time to get to know you, your health background, preferences and concerns. She will review a menu of services that could be helpful for you.
  • Plan of Care – The Care Manager will develop a care plan tailored for each individuals needs. The Plan may be modified in consultation with client and family, as circumstances change.
  • Ready to Go – After the Plan of Care is developed you will decide along with the Care Manager what you would like her to do. Services can be short term to manage a Crisis or long term to manage overall Health Care.
