Care Management

Geriatric Care Management Services is an emerging concept for families needing oversight and advocacy

Services from a Care Manager should be something that every family takes advantage of, but in reality very few families are offered these services. Care managers could go a long ways towards helping the family with cost containment and finding a better and more efficient ways of providing care for a loved one.

The concept is simple; ACHA provides a care manager (at no addional costs) that acts as a guide through the maze of long-term care services and providers. By providing consumer education and advocacy, reducing costs by avoiding inappropriate placements, duplication of services, and unnecessary hospitalizations.

Below is a partial list of what a care manager might do:

  • Assess the level and type of care needed and develop a care plan
  • Take steps to start the care plan and keep it functioning
  • Make sure care is received in a safe and disability friendly environment
  • Resolve family conflicts and other family issues relating to long term care
  • Become an advocate for the care recipient and the family caregiver
  • Manage care for a loved one for out-of-town families
  • Conduct ongoing assessments to monitor and implement changes in care
  • Oversee and direct care provided at home
  • Coordinate the efforts of key support systems
  • Arrange for services of legal and financial advisors
  • Assistance with placement in assisted living facilities or nursing homes
  • Monitor the care of a family member in a nursing home or in assisted living
  • Assist with the monitoring of medications
  • Find appropriate solutions to avoid a crisis
  • Coordinate medical appointments and medical information
  • Arrange transportation to medical appointments
  • Assist families in positive decision making
