How it works – When Should I Collaborate?
Professionals who want to help their clients/patients often find themselves unsure of the appropriate time/condition to make a referral. To help you make this determination, download a Client/Patient Checklist <<here>>.
A physician notices that a patient is missing appointments. The Care Manager arranges help for the client (patient) to arrive at their appointments on time, advocates their medical needs, assures that the medical plan is implemented and communicates with family members to ease their minds.
A discharge planner wants to send a patient home but recognizes that the client may need some help at home. The Care Manager is called in to implement the discharge plan, transition the patient comfortably into the home, arrange follow up appointments and fill prescriptions.
The HR manager is aware that one of his employees often misses work because the employee is dealing with the needs of an aging family member. The Care Manager is called in to consult with the employee to provide a roadmap for care and community resources so that the employee can return to work without anxiety, fear or guilt, knowing that their loved one is being cared for by a professional.
Following a recent death, neither the spouse nor the family knows who to turn to for legal or other advice. Dependency, care for the surviving spouse, entitlements and choice of housing are concerns. The Care Manager is brought in to connect and work with attorneys and other professionals as needed.
A financial planner notices that a client’s bills are not being paid for on a timely basis. The Care Manager can provide a bill review and payment system.
A CPA notices that an adult child is suddenly spending a large amount of their assets supporting the care of their parents. A Care Manager is able to research public and local entitlements to help offset the costs.
A client’s mother has limited resources and requires 24 hour care. A Care Manager can find the most cost effective placement using medical entitlements.
