What is Care Management?

A care manager can help both clients and families with many of life's issues related to aging and disability.  Care managers should have a background in health and human services which provides them with extra insight and experience to help clients and their families navigate community resources and the healthcare system.  They assist with creating and coordinating a care plan which is tailored to each client's resources and needs.  They often provide support to long distance family members and caregivers.  For clients who lack a support system the care manager assists with creating and providing support which is otherwise not available.  Care managers have knowledge of many areas related to aging and disability. 

Some Areas a Care Manager can assist with are:

*  Information and Referral

*  Assessment and Care Planning

*  Veterans Benefits

*  Medicare, Medi-Cal and other health insurance

*  Locating Facilities

*  Paperwork and monthly budgeting

*  Monitoring of a client in a facility

Care managers should be members of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers have a code of ethics and standards of practice which they are required to adhere to.
