Why does one need a Care Coordinator?
Care Coordination ensures that the geriatric and disabled individuals are offered a holistic approach in the form of resources and support. These help in reducing not just the stress but the healthcare costs as well. They also help in avoiding hospitalizations and improving the quality of life for the senior citizens and the family caregiver.
For us, family caregivers are as important as the geriatric patients.
Caregivers have access to case notes and are informed about every step of the care received by their loved ones. This has proven to be useful for long-distance caregivers.
Our assessment process includes a psychosocial evaluation, mini-mental exam, overall health and medication compliance, home safety evaluation and problem identification and assessment of resources and care team support.
This assessment is performed by a Certified Geriatric Care Manager (GCM) who are certified by the ALCA. EmpowerCare’s GCMs possess a minimum of 5 years of experience in direct Care Management or Social Work and a Master’s degree in psychology/social work/nursing.
