What does a Case Manager do?

A Case Manager will talk with you, carers and significant others to design a home care plan that reflects your values, goals and unique requirements. With a plan in place, the Case Manager will set up services, source useful products, make referrals and monitor your progress. As your needs change they will adapt the plan to suit.
