Case Management provides assistance either in the form of access or care coordination in circumstances where the older person and/or their caregivers are experiencing diminished functioning capacities. Activities of case management include assessing needs, developing care plans, authorizing and arranging services, coordinating the provision of service among providers, follow-up and reassessment, as required. Services include but are not limited to: advocacy, adult daycare, housekeeping/personal care, housing, group care placement, medical appointments, nutrition, legal assistance, personal finances, etc. Anyone who is 60 or over and displays an inability to handle routine life skills may qualify.

The suggested minimum contribution is $30.00 per month, however, every case will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Included in this function is our designation as Representative Payee for Social Security, SSI, and Railroad Retiree recipients who have been deemed appropriate for this service.
