Among many other duties, the role of our care managers includes the following: - Conducting a professional assessment (and regular reassessments) of the needs of the person requiring care - Developing a detailed, individualized care plan - Executing the care plan, by arranging, coordinating and overseeing all necessary services (usually multiple), including those provided by our own trained staff and by community-based providers - Continuously monitoring all services provided - Patient advocacy Our care managers act as the “go-to” person and liaison for families.
