Acknowledging that everyone has individual needs, Family Link provides a personal plan of care for you and your loved ones.
Are you worried about a senior adult or concerned about a family member?
Family Link Care Managers are professionals hired by families or caregivers to navigate through challenging times. Like an extension of the family, Geriatric Care Managers assist elderly clients to ensure their quality of life and address their emotional and physical well-being. The Care Manager works in conjunction with families, community resources and other providers to make sure that a client’s needs are met. The family is kept up-to-date after each visit. Family Link Care Managers are experts at providing solutions and coordinating trusted care for your loved one.
A Care Manager performs a needs assessment at the initial home visit to address concerns, to assist families in determining a course of action and addressing gaps in services. This part of the planning process is used for improvement in services, identifying appropriate interventions and is an effective tool to clarify problems. By clearly identifying the problems, the Care Manager works with families on solutions. The results of the needs assessment will guide subsequent decisions and can provide a starting place.
