These are the most common questions that families ask when faced with finding quality care management for their loved one: 

Frequently Asked Questions

When is a Care Manager needed?

Care Managers at Care Management Advocates provide assistance when time and the stress of providing care for a family member conflicts with work, family or other obligations. Care management can be an essential link in the chain to assist families in caring for an adult who resides a long distance from family, while at the same time bringing the experience of working with direct care providers and other professionals within the community. 

Don't care facilities handle everything?

Not exactly. While some care facilities will take care care of your loved one's basic medical, nutritional and transportation needs, there often are other specialty areas that frequently need to be addressed. 

Care Managers take a more holistic view and are in tune with real-life issues and health concerns that emerge as a person ages, or as a person faces cognitive or physical challenges. 

Care Managers utilize a wealth of resources within the community of social workers, nurses, psychologists, elder-law attorneys, advocates and other care professionals who can best help you and your loved one.
