What is Case Management?

Do you need . .

  • Information on Alzheimer's disease?
  • Help making decisions in the best interest of your loved one with Alzheimer's disease?
  • Someone to explain and arrange services?
  • Help understanding financial and legal challenges?
  • Support and education to deal with changes as the disease progresses?

Many families need access to information and resources that will help them provide quality care at home for their loved one with dementia. Often, the Alzheimer’s Association can provide adequate help over the telephone. However, there are occasions when a family needs more assistance than can be offered by telephone. The Alzheimer’s Association offers case management services to meet families’ needs at home.

Our caseworkers work one-on-one with families to:

  • Arrange a family meeting to discuss the needs of the person with dementia, as well as the needs of the primary caregiver.
  • Develop a plan of care for the person with dementia.
  • Assist in locating community resources, such as adult day care, in-home support or respite services.
  • Help families gain a better understanding of the disease process through educational programs and written materials.
  • Help families develop care strategies and coping techniques for better Alzheimer care.
  • Provide on-going assistance as needs change.

When funds are available, there is help available to families whose loved one needs adult day care or in-home respite, but cannot afford the costs of these services.  For more information regarding our case management program, please contact us at 1.800.272.3900.
