Advocating and Coordinating

Susan, age 83, lived alone in her home with no outside assistance, but her safety at home was questionable. Following an accident, she required hospitalization and several weeks of rehabilitation at a nursing home. The Care Manager attended a rehab care conference as Susan’s advocate at her request. The rehab team recommended that due to Susan’s care needs and prior self-care difficulties, she needed permanent nursing home placement. This is not what Susan wanted. Based on the Care Manager’s assessment of Susan’s home situation, preferences, finances and resources available to her, the Care Manager proposed an alternate plan to the rehab team. The Care Manager was able to return Susan home safely with a home care nurse, home health aide, homemaker/companion and money manager. She arranged for Susan to meet with an Elder Law attorney to plan for her current and anticipated needs. The Care Manager follows Susan at home, monitoring the home situation, coordinating her many clinic appointments, arranging for medical equipment when needed and collaborating with the clinics and service providers to ensure good communication and a cohesive care plan.
