Case Managers assist clients with chronic health care needs to obtain home and community care services such as Adult Day Services, Home Support, Assisted Living and Residential Care.
Case Managers will help you and your family:
- identify your care needs
- understand your care options
- connect with appropriate services
- move to more supportive care when required.
Your Case Manager will provide an assessment to find out what your needs are, coordinate access to Community Health Services, and will make adjustments if your care needs change.
If you are in the hospital, your Case Manager will work with you and your family to enable a smooth transition between hospital and home, assisted living, or residential care.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge for your Case Manager's services.
