The typical touch points for a Care Manager

A Care Manager is a guide, advocate, and resource for individuals and families.  A Care Manager may be trained in the fields of nursing, social work, gerontology, psychology, and other health professions with a specialized focus on these issues.

The Care Manager proactively links every constituent of a client's care. These constituents include a client’s Family and Friends, Primary Physician, Fiduciary Entities, Attorney, Community Resources, Facilities, Pharmacy, Home Care Agencies and Private Care Givers, Hospice, Home Health, Other Medical Entities, and any other aspect of the client’s care.

Care Managers are different from a home care agency in that they manage more facets of an individual's life and they do not provide direct care giving services.  Care Managers will sometimes serve as a companion or assist with Activities of Daily Living if a client wishes.  Typically though a Care Manager is responsible for ensuring a home care agency is performing these tasks according to the care plan.
