What is a Nurse Care Manager?
A Nurse Care Manager is a guide for the aging journey.
Caring for ourselves and our loved ones is never a simple thing. It only gets more complicated as we age. There are many twists and turns in the road and most of us will need help at some point in order to make this journey well.
A Nurse Care Manager knows how to navigate the health care system.
As a medical professional, your Nurse Care Manager knows how the health care system works, knows the language and has the experience and skills to facilitate optimum health care for their patients. Physicians and other providers greatly appreciate someone in the home to fine tune the care plan, monitor changes and communicate back to them.
A Nurse Care Manager will help you coordinate your care.
There are many different kinds of help needed. It’s important, even critical, to make the right kind of connections, and connecting with the right kind of help rarely “just happens.” Think about all the different aspects of elder care as spokes on a wheel. There may be many different people involved. A senior Nurse Care Manager’s role is to function as the hub of the wheel. A care manager will help you make and maintain those connections which are so vital to your health and well-being.
A Nurse Care Manager is a patient advocate.
The Nurse Care Manager can represent the senior’s needs to the people in their communities and help secure needed services and vital support. Through maintaining a multi-textured web of support, the Nurse Care Manager achieves and maintains the highest possible quality of life for their patients.
A Nurse Care Manager is a surrogate family member.
Families at a distance can count on the Nurse Care Manager to act like they would if they were able. They can keep close touch via phone or email on just what is happening with their loved one.
