Case Management, formerly known as Service Coordination, assesses the needs of individuals and assists in connecting the consumer with the needed resource. By consulting with the consumer and his / her support system, the case manager is able to develop a plan to address the needs identified. Case managers may assist in referrals to other agencies and our own agency services such as respite, residential or day program services. Case managers are available to advocate for the needs of the consumers as needed. These services are available to eligible parties starting at age 3.
