Facts About Care Management

Mission

The State certified Care Management Program assesses the living situations of the frail elderly and designs care plans to enable them to remain independent and in their own homes.

Goal

To determine the needs of frail elderly clients, link them with appropriate in-home services and then monitor those services over time.

Description of program

NENAAA Care Managers assess all aspects of a client's life, including:

  • Activities of daily living
  • Finances
  • Social interaction
  • Cognitive abilities
  • Nutrition
  • Overall Health
  • Home Safety

After completing the assessment interview, a Care Manager will make recommendations about the appropriate community resources to meet any needs. The client makes the final determination about services that may be enlisted. Care Managers then monitor the living situation of their clients and will be available to assist in solving any future problems that may arise.
