Case Management

Program/Service description

Case management helps older persons, persons with disabilities, and caregivers get connected with the services that they need. Case managers help in three ways:

  1. assessing (or evaluating) a person's situation and needs;
  2. working with individuals and their families to develop "care plans" to map out what kind of services an individual needs, how often they are needed, etc.; and 
  3. providing ongoing coordination to see that an individual's care needs are being met.

*Public funding means that the program is paid for, in part or in whole, by the government. Some publicly-funded programs have eligibility requirements and provide services at low cost or no cost to people who qualify. Most of these programs and services though, are also available to people who are able to pay privately (with their own money). For more information, please see the Sources of Funding section of this web site.
