A Care Manager will communicate with all doctors and professional involved in the care of your loved one to understand all aspects of the medical needs. She will be in attendance for doctor appointments to advocate for your loved one and ensure that diagnosis, medications and care are understood. Medications, equipment and supplies will be reviewed and maintained. Medical staff will be hired, managed and kept informed. A Care Manager can assist in understanding disease processes and in creating an environment that allows for the greatest quality of life for your family. With regular visits, Care Managers are often able to identify minor declines in health that can be addressed with a simple change in medication, or a visit to a doctor, avoiding the stress and cost of a hospital stay.
