The Resource for Aging Well

Care Management Minimize

The professional and experienced staff of Senior Connections' Care Coordination Program handle phone requests for assistance from seniors and caregivers and may include a home visit for a person-to-person interview to determine what type of assistance is needed.  The interview will cover a wide range of topics that are part of everyday living, including:
 - Daily Activities
 - Feelings, Moods, and Emotions
 - Finances
 -
Health Conditions
 -
Housing Arrangements
 -
Insurance
 -
Nutritional Needs
 -
Safety
 -
Memory

After the initial interview, Care Coordinators arrange specific services to meet the individual needs of a senior. Service could include:
 -
Hiring someone to assist in the home with household chores, shopping, and driving to the store or doctor’s office.

 - Programs that promote interaction with other seniors to prevent isolation

 - Counseling services to assist with paying bills and managing a checking account

 - Home repair and modification to accommodate physically challenged older adults. This could include the construction of a wheelchair ramp to provide easier access into the home or repairs to a deteriorating home to make the environment safer.

 - Hiring an in-home care provider to help with managing health care needs such as taking prescription medications, physical therapy, and medical devices.

 - Plans to relocate to another, more suitable living environment or install devices and equipment in the home for safety.

 - Determining eligibility for and benefits from Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, Social Security, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

 - Selecting a nutritional food service program that involves either having meals delivered to the home, or having your loved one visit a local senior center for a lunch meal program.

 - Programs that maintain cognitive functioning through scheduled activities, crafts, and educational presentations
