Care Management

Helping You Navigate the Challenges of Care

Our Care Managers are highly credentialed nurses and social workers who understand the complexities of care. From assessments and coordination to advocacy and education, Care Managers are the central point of contact for all your care needs.

Care Management Services

Lifematters Care Management utilizes a team approach. Our nurses, social workers and gerontologists work together to meet your needs. Our services are broad in nature and are individualized to meet your needs.


Consultations

A one-on-one meeting with a professional Care Manager at our office or in your home who will focus on your current concerns and issues. Following this meeting you will receive a written summary of recommended services and referrals prepared just for you.

Care Management

An on-going service that partners you with a dedicated Care Manager who will get to know you and put together a list of specific services and resources for you to select. This “Care Plan” is a guide for your short term and long term planning needs. Your Care Manager will support you in healthy aging through home visits and phone calls to ensure you receive quality services.

Health Care Coordination

A Care Manager or Senior Friendly Visitor will accompany you to medical and dental appointments & procedures as well as take notes, ask questions, schedule follow-up appointments, and keep family members and your health care professionals updated.

Education

The team at Lifematters Care Management embraces the philosophy that knowledge is power. We provide informative presentations on aging related issues at senior housing communities, religious establishments, Village groups and work place settings. We also provide Continuing Education presentations for Social Workers and Nurses on current topics in aging.

Lifematters has been an amazing resource for our family. When my father had a stroke, I reached out to them to help me with my parents, who were overwhelmed by how to deal with this life changing moment for them. I live on the other coast and my brother is 3 hours away with a busy job and family, so it was going to be hard for us to help on a daily basis. There was so much information and much confusion and lack of coordination between doctors, the hospital and the rehab facility. Lifematters took the time to meet with my family at the rehabilitation facility on a weekend, actively listened to what we needed and paired us with someone who has been an incredible match for our family. She has given my mom and dad a peace of mind, knowing that they have a friend and representative who is there when they need them, for whatever they face next. Our representative is dedicated, compassionate, organized and an advocate, as well as a great communicator with the family. Her patience and understanding of how to provide a peace of mind is beyond impressive. My mom has commented “I would not have been able to have made it through this difficult time with them, and don’t know what I would have done.” Words cannot express how grateful we are for this amazing company and the peace of mind they have brought!
