How do I know if Care Management is the right option?
You won’t know until you call!
Getting Started With A Care Manager
A Cornerstone Care Manager will meet with your loved one every 3 months, establishing a relationship and in the case of an emergency, a familiar face will be available. A Care Manager can conduct safety checks in case of inclement weather or meet your loved one at the hospital if an emergency call is necessary. Because the Care Manager has access to medical records, legal documentation, and the contact information for loved ones, emergency personnel will have all that is needed to provide the best possible care.
What To Expect
Meet With A Care Manager
A care professional will meet with your family to talk about your specific concerns and goals. This meeting can be in our office, in your home or favorite coffee shop, or virtually-whatever works best for your family.
Immediate needs met
Immediate needs will be addressed- immediately! Your Care Manager will offer guidance, advocacy and direct referrals to appropriate resources. He or she can then coordinate the initiation and continuation of these service, or simply offer support to the family as you contact referrals independently.
Planning For The Future
As the Care Manager gets to know your family, they can assist you in preparing for the future and developing a family plan that will allow for consistent, supportive services to your loved one. This includes legal and financial planning, family counseling related to long-term care options and end of life planning.
Relax and Enjoy Life
If you choose to move forward with our care management services, you can relax and enjoy life with your family, knowing that you have provided the best possible care for your loved one.
