What is Included in Care Navigation Services?

A skilled Care Navigator acts as a central coordinator, addressing the social, emotional, physical, and healthcare needs of your loved one. It’s important to note that not all care managers specialize in every area, so finding someone with experience in your specific needs is crucial. Here are some of the ways in which Care Managers provide assistance:

  • Conducting a thorough in-person assessment: This assessment enables the care manager to understand your unique needs and customize plans accordingly. Through comprehensive interviews covering various relevant aspects such as everyday activities, nutritional status, safety, memory, depression, finances, insurance, and health history, the care manager gains insight into your loved one’s health and living situation.
  • Creating a personalized care plan: Based on the assessment results, the care manager formulates a care plan that includes recommendations and referrals for local community options. The care manager takes the time to explain the details of the plan, the reasoning behind the recommendations and helps prioritize the steps to be taken.
  • Arranging tailored services: The care plan serves as a guide for organizing services based on the identified needs. Care Managers can assist with crisis intervention, counseling and support, consumer education and advocacy, money management, referrals, decisions regarding suitable housing options, assistance with relocation, advice on power of attorney or guardianship matters, acting as a liaison for distant families, ensuring the well-being of your loved one, and alerting you to any emerging issues.
  • Monitoring ongoing needs: Once services and arrangements are in place, regular monitoring becomes vital. Frequent re-evaluations help in making necessary adjustments. The Care Manager keeps track of your loved one’s capabilities and functions over time, ultimately enhancing their quality of life and providing peace of mind for you.
