What is a Care Manager?

A care manager is a health and human services specialist who acts as a guide and advocate for families who are caring for older relatives or disabled adults. A care manager helps clients live life to its fullest: Encouraging independence, protecting dignity, and addressing safety and security concerns.

Our holistic approach focuses on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. We also have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of resources in the community.

Our care managers are educated and experienced in several fields of importance for people in need of care:

  • Health and disability. Through assessments and experience, we can help you understand what your loved one does well and in what areas he or she could use additional help.
  • Finances. A review of the current monetary situation will result in a plan to make resources stretch as efficiently as possible while maintaining the desired level of comfort, dignity, and safety.
  • Housing. Based on the assessments, recommendations can be made for optimal living situations now, with a view to likely changes in the foreseeable future.
  • Family. Sibling disagreements and family history often make the aging journey difficult. Our training provides skilled facilitation of family meetings and creation of a plan that takes everyone’s needs into account.
  • Local resources. There are programs available to help, but it’s difficult to know which one is the most appropriate for your situation. Save time and money by letting us objectively evaluate the situation and connect you to the resources best suited to your needs.
  • Advocacy. Our comprehensive knowledge of the disjointed health care system allows us to monitor quality and lobby for the care and treatment your family wants.
  • Legal. Let us help you identify issues and get key paperwork in order.
  • Crisis intervention. The unexpected is simply a fact of life in aging. We are experienced with elders’ emergencies and are ready to jump in at a moment’s notice.

How do you know when you need a Care Manager?

When caregiving for an aging family member becomes overwhelming, it may be time to contact an Aging Life Care Professional.

You may need an Aging Life Care Professional if the person you are caring for:

  • has multiple medical or psychological issues
  • is unable to live safely in their current environment
  • is not pleased with current care providers and requires advocacy
  • is confused about their own financial and/or legal situation
  • has limited or no family support

Or if your family:

  • has just become involved with helping the individual and needs direction about available services
  • is either “burned out” or confused about care solutions
  • has limited time and/or expertise in dealing with the individual’s chronic care needs and does not live close by
  • is at odds regarding care decisions
  • needs education and/or direction in dealing with behaviors associated with dementia
