Case Management Services

Most people with chronic or recurring injuries and illnesses, such as mental illness, traumatic brain, spinal cord or orthopedic injuries, have complex needs. Case management is a type of aftercare to provide continuous management of such conditions.

 The more disabling and chronic an illness or illness, the more the case management service to ongoing care patients, their caregivers, and families need.  Especially for illnesses and injuries that lead to repetitive hospitalization, active case management is necessary.

Locations Served: San Diego, Imperial, Orange, Riverside & San Bernardino Counties along with Southern or Eastern Los Angeles Counties. If it’s a one-time assessment our range is greater.

Your partner and advocate, for your best possible outcome, for the long haul

When our CEO was at Grossmont Hospital, she would work with individuals who had suffered brain or spinal cord injuries. They would rehab, get treatment, make great progress and return home. A few months later they would return, often losing all the progress they previously made. That’s the genesis behind our Case Management services.

We plan for the patient’s long-term care needs while the family focuses on their loved ones’ day to day care. We connect them and their families with all the resources.

How does it start?

If we have completed a Life Care Plan or a Home Assessment, we will begin implementation immediately. If not, we may have to do an initial home visit and review the patient’s medical records.

After that we will being implementation of all their medical and resource needs. We will set up the initial medical appointments, secure the necessary durable medical equipment, interview home health attendants, begin either living modifications or provide alternate living options and coordinate additional services such as trust/estate attorneys or financial planners. We will also start a benefit administration plan to ensure that the cost of their care is spread around to different sources.

More than just the medical and benefit side, we want to find a way for the patient to contribute. There is no life if the patient is just going from medical appointment to medical appointment. They must find something to do, and someone to do it for. As they become more independent, as they move beyond stability towards a better outcome, we will help them find a passion and a way to contribute to society.

Testimonials for Case Management

RCC Families - FPO image
They know what’s right for the family, and sometimes we say we can’t do it because it’s not available. They don’t accept that, they say “If that’s what is right, let’s figure out how to do it”.
