“ Professional Life Care Managers, with a wide range of skills and experience, assist clients and families living with Special Needs. They understand the devastating effect that incapacity, physical or mental, has on clients and their families. Their training allows for them to provide assessments and care plan development for meeting the medical, psychological and social challenges of their clients, and to assist the other professional members of the care team. This care plan helps to guide families and caregivers in their lifecare journey. Their relationships with community resources help to ensure appropriate and optimal quality of care.
A Life Care Management care plan is prepared for the client and family following a very comprehensive assessment of all needs of the client, to include but not limited to, medical, social, psychosocial, safety assessment of home setting, nutritional, legal and financial needs. The Life Care Manager coordinates care with all client service providers and works closely with the legal council and Trust officers. The Care Management team also assists with ensuring appropriate care settings and with planning and preservation of client assets.
The goal of the client care is directed at promoting client’s independence and quality of life, while focusing on appropriate level of care and advocating for the client in all areas of need.“
