About Spectrum Care Management & Counseling, LLC
Assess the Situation
Care management begins with a comprehensive assessment of the current situation. We meet with you and your loved one to discuss your needs or concerns. An assessment may include a review of how well the individual can carry out the basic activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, or preparing meals; understanding how the individual spends their day and their quality of life; or analysis of psychological, mental, and social functioning. We also learn more about the person's history and financial resources; review medical records; and consult with other family members and health care providers as needed.
Develop a Plan!
The assessment leads to the development of a care plan. This plan outlines the personalized services that will guide us in optimizing the independence, dignity and quality of life for the senior or disabled person. The plan includes guidance on how a family caregiver can arrange the necessary services or obtain resources. Depending on the situation, it may include support for staying at home, exploration of care facilities and community support services, recommendations for adaptive equipment, driving assessments, or referrals to psychiatrists or cognitive specialists. Education and emotional support for the client and the family are also incorporated into the plan.
Carry out the Plan
A geriatric care manager can continue with you to provide support in implementing the care plan. At this point, your geriatric care manager is like finding a long lost relative. Someone that comes in to do the work"¦organizing and coordinating services, educating the family on care needs, attending medical appointments and advocating for the client's needs, or providing referral to fiduciary services. This may mean working with insurance agencies, applying for Medicaid or other benefits, or working with providers to make sure they are utilizing the benefits properly.
Adapt and Revise
Change is inevitable. As part of the geriatric care management process, we work to anticipate changes and adapt the care plan accordingly. Reassessment can be a continual process if we remain an active part of your care process or we can work with you on a periodic basis to discuss what might come next.
