What does a Case Manager do?
A case manager visits the client at home to determine what needs might be present through interview with the client or caregiver and assessment of the home environment. The case manager also helps determine if the client might qualify for funding and assist with any applications as needed. If a client is not in need of ongoing case management, they will be referred to appropriate community resources and services at the time of the assessment.
How do I make a referral for case management services?
Referrals may be made by physician’s offices, facilities, friends, family members, or the individual themselves. Clients are accepted to Case Management on a first come first serve basis. There is no cost or obligation for an in-home assessment.
Generally, a qualified applicant will start receiving waiver services within 30 days from the date of referral.
