LifeCare Management also known as eldercare or geriatric care management, a holistic, client-centered approach to caring for older adults or others facing ongoing health challenges (e.g, mental illness, disabilities, chronic pain). Working with families, the expertise of a professional care manager provides the answers at a time of uncertainty. Their guidance leads families to the actions and decisions that ensure quality care and optimal life for those they love, thus reducing worry, stress and time off of work for family caregivers.
The goal of LifeCare Management is to decrease family stress and increase quality of life in a holistic way through focusing on planning and coordinating the care of individuals to improve their quality of life (mental, physical, spiritual), to maintain their independence, connection to family and the community.
- Coaching and advising family caregivers
- Helping families evaluate residential housing or home care options
- Assisting with management of doctors’ appointments and medications
- Providing support with legal and financial matters
- Assessing the safety and well-being of the client and family
LifeCare Management is a good option for transitions; when health changes are occurring and you want to know what choices are available to you and how to pay for them. LifeCare Management can also relieve the stress placed on family caregivers, particularly if long-distance caregiving is a factor, and mediate in cases of interpersonal communication issues within the family.
LifeCare Management can provide services that go beyond what a family caregiver is able to achieve. Though many informal caregivers can and do provide effective care management, the fact is, navigating the waters of care becomes more complicated every day, and the emotional health of the family can suffer as a result. LifeCare Management may be the answer if the situation you find yourself in is becoming too complex to handle yourself.
