When illness strikes, your family is suddenly faced with an overwhelming new reality. As aging becomes challenging, old tasks seem daunting. There are physical issues to deal with and emotional ones. There’s a new medical regime to follow. Ongoing specialist visits to face. Supplies and equipment may be required. At times, home modifications or help moving to an entirely new dwelling is needed. Many practical decisions and issues you must face can seem overwhelming. It can be stressful to keep all your responsibilities in order, especially while trying to cope with the new complications that illness brings.
Registered Nurse Case Managers (PCM's) are assigned to clients who want privately, case-managed care. These Nurse Case Managers are able to be involved with patients and their families to coordinate their healthcare. The guidance and support they provide reduces the burden on families, allowing family members to stay involved in a more meaningful and helpful way. Our Nurse Care Managers (PCMs) collaborate with the client's physicians, hospitals and social agencies to leverage all resources available, including both public and private services, enhancing the level of care and quality of life. They follow a doctor’s lead, utilizing our full range of services, described in our Services section.
All Service Packages we offer include case management services. All packages include an on-call nurse manager (PCM) 24/7, for safety, security and support. Clients with case managed care are also able to acquire medical equipment and supplies conveniently and at reduced prices.
Andrea Nathanson has just published a book entitled "Margie's Gentle Journey" - a moving account of one of her most memorable cases. It is also an excellent description of the 360oCaseManagementTM service that Qualicare provides. Click here for more details.
