The Care Management Program is designed to identify and coordinate community resources and services to assist Older Nebraskans to remain at home independently. The program is a state-certified program through the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services - State Unit on Aging.
Our Care Managers are professionals in the Human Services field, including Social Workers or nurses. They conduct a comprehensive assessment of the individual to determine needs. Together with the individual, the Care Manager develops a plan of services and implements the plan by arranging the services agreed upon. The Care Manger also provides appropriate follow-up with each individual to assure satisfaction and to identify changing needs.
All Nebraskans age 60 or older are eligible for Care Management services. The program is a fee-for-service program, based on a sliding fee scale. However, no one is denied services due to inability to pay.
Referrals to the Care Management program are accepted from any source. The program is available in all eight counties in the Blue Rivers service area.
