Helping people stay self-sufficient
Area Five’s case managers work with the elderly and disabled in our communities to help them stay safely self-sufficient in their own homes. With regular outreach and program referrals, we can help people stay home instead of in a long-term care facility.
Case Management services assess individuals who are elderly and/or disabled to determine eligibility for programs that help them remain in their home safely. Our case managers evaluate a person’s ability to handle daily activities with and without in-home assistance. To qualify for program referrals the average monthly cost of in-home care must be lower than the monthly cost of a long-term care facility.
The most common services provided include: home healthcare, nursing, respite care for caregivers, housekeeping, home delivered meals, and home modifications such as wheelchair ramps. Area Five contracts with state-certified providers to complete these services. Case Managers maintain relationships with regular home visits and frequent communication with service providers.
