A Glimpse of Case Management

Case Managers are essential for ensuring that individuals receive services that help them live the life they want. A typical week usually consists of phone calls, meetings, collaborating with other agencies in the community, home visits, and monitoring satisfaction of services which consists of visits with the individual, family members, and/or providers.  Case Managers' schedules are self-driven and subject to change at times; being organized and having the ability to adapt to changing situations are keys to success.
