What can a Care Manager Do?

A care manager is trained to handle many aspects of caring for older adults while providing support to family members. Case managers design individualized care plans that fit the abilities and resources of clients.

Care management services coordinate the personal and medical needs of each client with physician and psychiatric services, fiduciaries, attorneys, physical and exercise therapy, professional caregiver agencies, pharmacies, home health, hospice care and other needed resources who specialize in senior care.

Care is delivered in a variety of settings including a patient’s home, assisted living facility, nursing home and certain hospital settings. Coverage is provided by Medicare, Medicaid, and by most private insurance providers.

How Can In Home Physical Therapy Help?

A licensed physical therapist is trained to assess strength and balance and implement a plan to address such deficits.  With 6+ years of post-high school education of how the body functions and how diseases and injury affect that function, a physical therapist finds a path for each client to move better with less pain.

Physical therapy helps improve quality of life and makes participating in normal activities of daily living easier for patients and family.  Physical therapists address deficits in mobility, balance, strength, pain, home safety, dizziness, and coordination. Physical therapy can be utilized to address home set up and provide caregiver training.  Falling in the home is significantly reduced when a physical therapist is part of the care team. We work together to achieve individual and family goals.

When to Call:

  • When you aren’t moving as well as you want to move
  • If you are experiencing pain related to muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, nerves, or posture
  • When you have fallen recently or feel like you could fall soon
  • If you have dizziness that becomes worse with movement or head position
  • You want to ensure that your living environment is safe
  • You prefer individual attention in the home instead of going to a busy outpatient clinic
  • You want medical equipment recommendations to optimize movement and safety for you and those who care for you
  • You haven’t met your goals with physical therapists previously or feel limited by insurance limits
  • You are getting wounds or sores and don’t know how to prevent recurrence
  • You need training for caregivers who are assisting you to walk, move, or transfer
  • You want a yearly or periodic screen for strength, flexibility, posture, and balance to find out how you compare to others about your same age
