At Melbar, each client has a 1:1 dedicated Case Manager.
We have introduced you with the 4 main responsibilities of case managers in your home care, and explained Case Mangers’ vital role in needs assessment and home care monitoring:
Today, we will touch upon how Case Managers can provide information, welfare and advocacy support to the seniors and their families.
1. Case Managers Help You Better Understand Government Policies and Information
Sometimes, it might take a lot of efforts of the seniors to understand the home care policies. Their families might not have a thorough understanding of the aged care system and can provide limited support. Your Case Manager is the go-to-person for any confusions or queries regarding your home care. You can access the latest policies information from your Case Manager including latest subsidies amount, extra supplement info, etc. Your Case Manager will also update you with the relevant new policies and discuss with you proactively to address changes in your home care planning.
2. Case Managers Give You Extra Welfare and Advocacy Support
Case Managers provide information, welfare and advocacy support to the seniors and their families. We help you to understand the policy and information clearly and easily, and we are always here to help you access other social welfare and advocacy supports.
