As staff or management at a long-term care community, you are committed to providing your residents with supportive services that create a safe, homelike environment. Nutritious meals, social activities, bathing and dressing, medication reminders, access to appropriate medical and behavioral health care…all help the members of your community maintain their health and quality of life.
Care Management Services
In the course of events, your residents often need more assistance. Attending medical appointments, advocating in the emergency room, or coordinating care after a hospitalization are not services you can provide. But they are services your residents need—services that can make the difference between staying in your community or needing to move to a higher level of care.
As a care manager we can help you by:
- Finding the right match to encourage happy placement the first time.
- Assisting with the transition, reducing turnover for you.
- Stabilizing chronic and serious conditions to support greater independence and well-being.
- Prolonging the time that the resident can stay in an assisted living context.
- Providing support when family members live far away.
- Taking your residents to the doctor any time they need to go.
- Being on call for emergency issues.
- Mediating family problems.

Transition trauma, behavioral challenges, and difficulties coping with functional decline and other losses are common among residents of long-term care communities and may require more emotional support and expertise than your staff are able to provide. Successful management of these issues can sometimes mean the difference between a happy, engaged resident or an unnecessary hospitalization.
Our psychological services can help you by:
- Reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety
