Care Management

After an initial telephone consultation, an assessment is usually necessary for care managers to understand the environment that the senior adults are living in, their level of functioning and their current support network. The assessment involves interviewing the senior adult and family members, gathering relevant medical records, developing an individualized action plan and discussing the options with the senior adult and caregivers to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate a comprehensive care plan.

Our care managers will conduct a comprehensive evaluation designed to determine what is needed to optimize the senior individuals ability to enjoy good health, improve their overall quality of life, reduce the need for hospitalization and enable them to live independently for as long as possible.

The EUROCARE care managers will gather relevant information by interviewing the senior adult, family, friends, clergy, health care providers, and others in order to propose a comprehensive treatment plan. This plan will take into consideration cultural background and value system of the client.

A Care Plan is an outcome of a patient’s assessment, and it is essentially an action plan for future care. A care plan lists all identified problems, suggests specific actions required and makes specific recommendations regarding resources needed to provide the necessary support services. We will engage the client and family in the planning process as the primary decision makers and goal setters along with the entire health care team.
